Fukuoka – the Cosmopolitan Heart of Kyushu
"Fukuoka, the cosmopolitan heart and largest city in the southern Japanese Home Island of Kyushu, is different things to different people. From shopping in Tenjin or Hakata, or dining on the local speciality Hakata ramen or motsunabe offal stew, or even enjoying one of Japan's largest festivals, Fukuoka's draws are far more versatile and diverse than what one may expect this far away from the main Japanese Island of Honshu."
