JR Hakata City

It is impossible to miss the JR Hakata City complex - its 11 floors’ worth of shops and restaurants attract both city residents and visitors (the location right above Fukuoka's main train station, JR Hakata, is unbeatable). Check out the ground floor for food and souvenirs, and do not miss everyone's favourite Tokyu Hands.


If you are looking for the latest in designer fashions, high tech gadgetries or intricately handcrafted souvenirs, then Fukuoka will not disappoint you. The city’s main shopping district is called Tenjin. Along its busy intersections you will find a number of department stores stocking everything from high street to high end designer labels whilst heading towards Ohori-koen, along Keiyaki-dori, and around Daimyo there are a host of small boutiques. If you are looking for something special to slip into for the evening’s entertainment then head on down to Tenjin.
