On Kyushu Island, the most south-westerly of Japan’s four main islands, Fukuoka Prefecture’s capital, is Fukuoka City. The area is seen as a cradle of culture – its position facing Korea and China across the sea means that in both ancient times and more recently, the area has been more exposed to outside influence. Fukuoka is home to Japan’s first Zen Buddhist temple, Shofukuji, and also the famous Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine, dedicated to the god of academic achievement. There are also plenty of lovely parks and gardens – ideal explorations in Kyushu’s warm climate. Fukuoka City, also known as Hakata, itself has a 2,000-year history of trade, making it an incredibly friendly and welcoming city. It is also a great city for foodies!
