Fukuoka (Kyushu)

Fukuoka is Kyushu's largest city (and Japan's sixth largest) and still growing. It's made up of two former towns, the Fukuoka castle town on the west bank of the Naka-gawa and Hakata on the east. The two towns merged in 1889 as Fukuoka, though the name Hakata is still widely in use (for instance, it's Fukuoka Airport but Hakata Station). Hakata traces its trading history back some 2000 years, which continues today with visitors from Seoul and Shanghai. Among Japanese, the city is famed for its 'Hakata bijin' (beautiful women), SoftBank Hawks baseball team and hearty Hakata ramen (egg noodles). Fukuoka's warmth and friendliness make it a great gateway to Kyushu, and warm weather and contemporary attractions - art, architecture, shopping and cuisine - make it a good base for regional excursions.

Scott Kent listened intently to our interests and tailored a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Japan. We felt immersed in the culture and integrated into the daily livs of the cities that we visited. It was the perfect mix of culture, traditions, indoor/outdoor adventures and culinary experiences. The accommodations were also perfect...some of the best places we have stayed in all of our trips around the world. The guides were friendly and very knowledgeable, as well as adaptable. Flawless experience with very little effort on our part to make it an extraordinary vacation... We enjoyed the food, living among locals, and also the free time to explore on our own. Our hike to the top of Mt. Karuma was very memorable, as well as our walks around the streets of Kyoto. We really enjoyed the local, cheaper food options versus the fancier dinners.... READ MORE
