City Information on Fukuoka City

Fukuoka City is located in the western part of Fukuoka prefecture in the northern part of Kyushu and is the prefectural capital. With a population of 1,645,100 (as of February 1, 2024), it is the largest city in Kyushu. Since it is a city in Kyushu, many people may imagine that the climate is warm, but Fukuoka prefecture is the northernmost prefecture in Kyushu and its latitude is not so different from the Kansai region. The average winter temperature in Tokyo is 5.6°C (January 2019), while the average temperature in Fukuoka is 8.0°C, which is slightly higher than the average temperature. Please be prepared for cold weather by bringing along a warm coat. Torrential downpours often occur in the summer, and typhoons pass through in the fall, so be prepared for rain. One of the most popular sightseeing spots in Fukuoka is Kushida Shrine, to which Hakata Gion Yamakasa is dedicated. Ornamental Yamakasa are exhibited on the grounds throughout the year. The shrine has been nicknamed Okushida-san by locals and is the guardian of Hakata. Fukuoka Tower is a tourist spot built on the bayside. At a height of 234m, it is the tallest seaside tower in Japan. The observation room on the top floor overlooks the city of Fukuoka, and because of its beautiful night view it is recommended as a date spot. If you want to enjoy shopping, Tenjin is the place to go. In the Tenjin area of Fukuoka City, which is the number one shopping area in Kyushu, you will surely find what you are looking for in the many stores such as long-established department stores, cutting-edge fashion shops and electronics retail stores. Fukuoka has a lot of delicious food that you will keep you wanting to come back over and over. Some dishes that are famous throughout Japan are tonkotsu ramen (pork bone broth ramen), mizutaki (one-pot dish), motsunabe (offal hot pot), yakitori, etc. One of the characteristics of Fukuoka is the high level of its food so you may be impressed by the taste of the food in a restaurant you just stopped by to try. Also, when it comes to Fukuoka, don't forget about the food stalls. At night, lighted food stalls appear all over the city and are always crowded with locals on their way home from work as well as tourists. The stalls serve a wide variety of foods such as oden and gyoza as well as the standard ramen. One of the ways to enjoy the stalls is by stall-hopping, say, with the first stop for gyoza, the second stop for yakitori, and the third stop for ramen.
