Travel Tips & Information
Here is brief information about this city. We hope it will help you in planning your trip.
Fukuoka City is the largest city in Kyushu.
If you are coming from Tokyo, it takes 1 hour and 30 minutes to 2 hours by airplane, and if you are coming by Shinkansen, it takes about 5 hours from Tokyo to Hakata by Nozomi.
The Fukuoka/Hakata area has a well-developed bus system, so it's easy to get to the venue if you use the bus, but if you don't mind walking a bit, larger venues can be reached by train by going to the nearest station and walking.
Since Fukuoka is a large city, there are many choices from high class hotels to economy hotels where you can stay at a lower price.
High-class hotels include the Hilton, Grand Hyatt, and Hotel Okura.
The Fukuoka/Hakata area is a large metropolitan area with many shopping malls and other facilities, but it is not an area with many sightseeing spots unique to Kyushu.
It is better to think of this area as a compact place where you can enjoy watching games and eating.
Dazaifu, about 15 kilometers from Fukuoka City, is a tourist spot where Michizane Sugawara, the god of learning, is enshrined.
Tonkotsu (pork bone) ramen is the most famous ramen in Japan, and it is one of the staples that you cannot miss when you come to Fukuoka.
The city is also famous for its motsunabe (motsunabe hot pot) and mizutaki (rice porridge), making it a city where you can enjoy a culinary trip.
