FUKUOKA

FUK_overview

Fukuoka, the heart of Kyushu, showcases the magnificent scenery of Japan’s southern island with spectacular mountain views. Fukuoka, known for its great weather, was ranked as one of the most loveable cities in the world.  The former Fukuoka city comprised of two cities which are “Nakagawa” to the west and “Hakata” to the east. In 1889 those towns were combined into Fukuoka. These days people may recognise the word “Hakata” as one of Fukuoka’s annual festivals, which draws in a large crowd from all over the world.
