Explore Fukuoka Western Region of Kyushu 5 Days

Explore Fukuoka Western Region of Kyushu 5 Days

Why visit Fukuoka instead of Tokyo, Kyoto and Osaka. Fukuoka has a long history, and even today, relics and artifacts from previous areas are excavated in the city. The city was originally a base for contact with foreign nations in the seventh century; around the turn of the 11th century, the Daitogai district was built for Chinese and Korean traders. Rows of internationally styled buildings were erected, and the growing metropolis became a haven for foreign merchants to come and go, taking on the name "Hakata City". As the sun sets across its skyscrapers, motorbikes with shed-like yatai mobile street food huts emerge from backstreets like strings of ants, and set up shop along the port city's Naka river and its neighbouring streets. As you slurp tonkotsu ramen noodles in one of the pokey yatais that fit a dozen diners at most, Savour the welcome weariness that comes with exploring a new metropolis. You can reach to Fukuoka Prefecture either by ANA Domestic Airlines or by the shinkansen "Bullet train".
