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.
Explore Fukuoka's surroundings by going to Dazaifu (Matsuda Shoten, Dazaifu Tenman-gu, &more) and Nanzoin Shakaden Nokotsudo (in Sasaguri-machi). There's lots more to do: take in the pleasant sights at Ohori Park, admire the landmark architecture of Hakata Station, stroll around Maizuru Park, and buy something for everyone on your list at Tenjin Underground Shopping Center.
