Welcome to Fukuoka, on the northern tip of Kyushu Island, it is western Japan’s most happening city and gateway to the country. Set amid splendid natural diversity – bordered by mountains, flanked by sea, and dotted with hot springs – the metropolis is an exciting hub of modern city life. Rich with tradition and modern cultural attraction, contemporary art, architecture, shopping, and cuisine complement centuries’-old temples and shrines.
Dining- Fukuoka is renowned throughout Japan for its ramen, and no trip to the city is complete without tasting the distinctive noodles and broth dish. Ramen can be sampled at hundreds of vendors throughout the city. The city’s many yatai (open-air street food stalls) offer yet another unique Fukuoka dining experience. Hundreds of stalls – operate from early afternoon into the evening.
Shopping-There is Canal City, “a city within a city”, a large shopping and entertainment complex centered around the canal. The city’s business district is home to many shops and department stores including an underground mall.
And yet, there is much more as we discover Yame City, the traditional crafts and Japanese tea town. While only 40 minutes from Hakata, this small town feels a world away. Enjoy a tea picking experience, sake brewery visit, and stroll the Fukushima district with over 100 white clay building dating to the Meiji, Taisho and Showa era. These were houses of merchants and craftsmen, now turned into shops and cafes.
On this Omiyage Weekender, we have also included 2 flower parks, an opportunity to get up and close with kangaroos and wallabies at Green Park, 2 hands-on experiences, and all-important shopping time.
