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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Fukuoka: Nagasaki (Megane Bridge, Nagasaki Prefectural Government Observation Deck, & more), Yutoku Inari Shrine (in Kashima) and Huis Ten Bosch (in Sasebo). There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Dazaifu Tenman-gu, let little ones run wild at Ohori Park, take in nature's colorful creations at Suizenji Jojuen Garden, and enjoy breathtaking views from Fukuoka Tower.

To find other places to visit, ratings, where to stay, and more tourist information, use the Fukuoka trip itinerary website .
