(130+ reviews on the web)
Gift & Specialty Shop Shopping
Explore the charming aisles of Kawabatadori Shopping Street, one of Fukuoka's oldest shopping complexes, offering a glimpse into the city's past. Shops stretch either side of the 400 m (1312 ft) covered pedestrian zone, where you can buy a range of gifts and souvenirs such as salt soap, traditional fans or local food items. The street also connects two major shopping complexes, a chance to find more international brands. Don't miss Asajima Ryubundo, a century-old shop known for its interior and small japanese garden, selling traditional fans (which quickly sell out) and paintings.
