Kyushu Locations



Fukuoka is the largest city on the Island of Kyushu, and center of the largest metropolitan region west of Osaka. Due to its proximity to mainland Asia, Fukuoka has a history of being a gateway between Japan and her neighbors – Fukuoka is twice as close to Seoul than it is to Tokyo! The city is modern and well connected, with the nearby airport and the modern subway system making getting around really easy. Due to its size, Fukuoka is much more manageable than the vast capital Tokyo, but still has plenty to offer in terms of retail, great food, and quality of life. The city is a great base for exploring Kyushu, famous for its onsen and volcanic mountains.
