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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Yutoku Inari Shrine and Hakozaki-gu. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Fukuoka: Dazaifu Temman-gu (in Dazaifu), Saga Castle History Museum (in Saga) and Takeo no Okusu (in Takeo). The adventure continues: let little ones run wild at Ohori Park, take an in-depth tour of Fukuoka City Museum, snap pictures at Kanmon Bridge, and admire the striking features of Hakata Station.

To see maps, more things to do, photos, and more tourist information, read our Fukuoka trip planning site .
