Welcome to the Visit Fukuoka website!
This brand new addition to Fukuoka Prefecture is designed to give you the best travel information about this cosmopolitan region. We, the Fukuoka Prefecture Tourism Association, hope to inspire you before your visit here.
Start in our Discover section to get your bearings then browse Things to Do, which details many of Fukuoka’s excellent dining venues, nature spots, experiences and more. Explore the Events section to find out more about annual celebrations like the Yanagawa Ohina-sama Water Parade and the Kanmon Straits Fireworks Festival — and maybe time your trip to coincide with one of these.
If you’re not sure on where you want to go, let the Plan a Trip section inspire you with its rich selection of diversely themed itineraries, pamphlets, accommodation advice and other tips. Whether your interests lie in art, history or nature, you’ll be sure to find something to pique your interest.
Last, but not least, get acquainted with Fukuoka locals through interviews and informative blog posts in our Articles section. Start by getting to know Yusuke Kumagae, a third generation Koishiwarayaki Pottery artisan and Shiro Araki, a contemporary costume designer. You can also learn what it’s like to live like a local in Fukuoka, Kitakyushu and Yame cities and — perhaps most importantly — get the lowdown on Fukuoka Prefecture’s favorite foods.
We hope you find what you need and we can’t wait to see you in Fukuoka sometime soon!
