Find a Yatai (street stall) on your night stroll along Tenjin or Nakasu to have authentic Hakata ramen. Go to Fish Man for some quirkily served sushi where the entrance chants No Fish No Life, or fish for your own food at Zauo, where they give you fishing rods to catch your own flounder from giant tanks.
Visit Hakata Machiya Furusato-kan, a folk museum inside three traditional townhouses or machiya, to relive the lifestyle and culture back in the late Meiji era. You can also catch sight of artisans creating local crafts here.
For art lovers, the Fukuoka Asian Art Museum is home to the Asia Gallery, which is renowned by artists and critics worldwide.
Pay a visit to Tocho-ji, Japan s largets wooden Buddha, Shofuku-ji, the Zen temple where it is said that Japan s first tea plants were planted, and the ACROS Fukuoka s lush green roof.
