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.
Kids will enjoy Huis Ten Bosch and Marine World umino-nakamichi. Get out of town with these interesting Fukuoka side-trips: Kumamoto (Kumamoto Castle & Suizenji Jojuen Garden), Nagasaki (Megane Bridge, Dejima, & more) and Dazaifu Tenman-gu (in Dazaifu). There's lots more to do: let the kids burn off some steam at Ohori Park, explore the world behind art at Fukuoka Asian Art Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Meinohama Sumiyoshi Shrine, and admire the landmark architecture of Hakata Station.
