Fukuoka City lies on the northern coast of Kyushu, the southernmost of the four main islands of Japan. The population of the city is approximately 1.4 million people, making it the 8th largest city in Japan. Being the closest major city in Japan to the Korean Peninsula and China, Fukuoka has from ancient times been a gateway for economic and cultural exchanges with its Asian neighbors. On the basis of these historical and geographical links, the city is working hard on many levels to strengthen its relationships with the rest of Asia, towards the goal of becoming a “focal point for the exchange of Asia” .

You can enjoy the fresh seafood from the Genkai sea, the Tonkotsu Ramen (noodles in milky pork bones soup), Mizutaki (Hot pot dish of Fukuoka with boiled chicken), Fugu (Blowfish) Cuisine, the Hakata’s specialty from the yatai (street strolls), along with bars and restaurants in the largest entertainment quarter in Kyushu, Nakasu. Not just Fukuoka’s traditional dish, there are many restaurants serving dishes from all other the world, such as French, Italian, and Asian.

Fukuoka City is recognized as a safe, clean and compact city by many visitors to Fukuoka. This is for its easy access within the city. In 10-20 minutes from the airport, major accommodation and convention facilities along with tourist and after convention sites are located all within the city’s center.
