Fukuoka is a modern, clean city with over one million inhabitants. Its location near the rest of Asia makes Fukuoka one of the major gateways to Japan.

There are a handful of tourist attractions in the city such as Fukuoka Castle, Fukuoka Tower, Fukuoka Beach, and several temples and shrines. However, the majority of travelers to Fukuoka are not here for the history or culture. This city has one of Japan's most famous nightlife districts at Nakasu, and Fukuoka is also famous for its shopping opportunities in areas such as Tenjin and Canal City.
