Fukuoka is Kyushu’s leading metropolis and is conveniently accessible from Fukuoka Airport. The entertainment district, lined with yatai (food stalls) offering ramen and other dishes, is especially appealing after sunset. Fukuoka is also home to the Dazaifu-tenmangu Shrine, dedicated to the worship of the god of learning, which is awarded 1 star in the Michelin Green Guide Japan.
