Where to stay in Fukuoka

As the largest city on the island, a hub of commerce, transport, and tourism, and a base for exploration of the wider region, Fukuoka offers plenty of accommodations to choose from. The most established hotels lie in Chuo Ward, the district closest to the port and on the western bank of the Naka River. Standard and luxury options abound in the this area and surrounding districts, offering a range of additional facilities to suit all tastes and budgets. Budget-conscious travelers will be pleased to find hostels and guesthouses throughout the city, but again, primarily in this central area.

  • If you still have time after having visited all the major shrines, and on a rainy day (where a visit to gardens would not be recommended), this museum would be a good Plan D or E. It provides an inter...  more »
  • Awesome exhibition, very informative, doesn't cost much. Goes into detail about the history of the Kyushu island and its place in Japan.  more »
  • Nice museum with in-depth explanations on the roots of the city as a harbor for foreigners into Japan. I regret that there wasn't more ln the modern era of the city's history though.  more »

  • It is well built to explain the development of fukuoka city from prehistoric era. As the story of how the hakata and fukuoka combined and unfolded into fukuoka city, one could gain knowledge of how significant this city is as the forefront of japan to the china and korea relationship. I especially happy to have discounted prize as a student, eventhough i am studying in different prefecture. Very understanding indeed
  • Monday closed. Adult:200yen (150 yen). High school/University students :150 yen (100yen).No charge for Junior High School Students and younger. Admission to the Permanent Exhibition and Featured Exhibition Rooms are the same.Admission to the Special Exhibition room is set differently.Business Hours is 9:30AM- 5:30PM( Admitted until 5 p.m)
  • Excellent museum detailing the history of Fukuoka. There are informational panels and several short documentary clips that describe the major eras, events, and people that shaped Fukuoka to what it is now. A great stop (1-2 hours) for history junkies who want to know a little bit about Fukuoka.
  • It's a good place to get to know the culture and history of Fukuoka. However, it is a bit expensive to go in. They have good nursery room, which is an asset.
  • Clear exhibition that tells the history and culture of fukuoka city but there's limited English label which is a pity. Only worth the trip if you have time and read Japanese.
