Fukuoka, the capital of the south

Vibrant and sunny, pleasant and gourmet, Fukuoka is the economic hub and cultural heart of Kyushu Island. The island's largest city has a strong identity, forged by centuries of trade with its Asian neighbors.

What areas to see in Fukuoka?

Lively and relaxed, the large district of Hakata remains today the heart of the city, the conservatory of its traditions. Hakata Station is the center of the city, so to speak. From the Hakata Gion festival to local slang and handicrafts, everything is showcased at the Hakata Machiya Folk Museum.

Don't miss Tenjin, the city's business center, which also houses shrines and a shopping district. Not far away is the small Daimyo district, a trendy center with many designer shops. The Gion district is home to some traditional nuggets.

What to see in Fukuoka?

Fukuoka is another way to see Japan. Younger than Kyoto, more relaxed than Tokyo, it has a distinctly southern feel. The city is also a good starting point for exploring Kyushu. The easiest way to get around is to use the three subway lines that criss-cross the city.

So don't hesitate to spend a few days in this amazing city, especially in autumn or winter, as the climate is mild and the plum blossoms are a beautiful sight.
