The largest city on the island, Fukuoka formed through the merger of two former cities that had grown up either side of the Naka River.
Get out of town with these interesting Fukuoka side-trips: Komenoyama Obsevatory (in Sasaguri-machi), Furogu (in Okawa) and Dazaifu (Dazaifu Tenman-gu, Kyushu National Museum, &more). There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Kushida Shrine, buy something for everyone on your list at Tenjin Underground Shopping Center, admire the masterpieces at Fukuoka Asian Art Museum, and go for a walk through Ohori Park.
