    The Hakata Bus Terminal, from which scheduled and high-speed buses leave and return from trips around Fukuoka City, has one underground and nine above ground floors with stores for clothing and accessories, sundries, daily goods and foodstuffs. Just a one-minute walk from JR Hakata Station’s Hakata Exit, it is convenient for both tourists and shoppers. From the first floor run local scheduled buses and from the third run high-speed buses going to Honshu and other areas around Kyushu.

    If you are planning a trip to another major city in Kyushu, I recommend considering the buses that leave this terminal. The are often as fast as the trains (except the shinkansen) and are much...

The Riverwalk is approximately three minutes on foot from the JR Nishi-Kokura Station and approximately ten minutes from the JR Kokura Station.

    A great river walk with shops and many pop up food stalls when we visited. Some great street food that was fun and tasty.

    A mall connected directly to Hakata Station. The Hakata Marui department store serves as the core tenant, but the mall is filled with a variety of establishments, including restaurants, fashionable apparel shops, bridal ware stores, and health clinics. Designed around the concept of serving as a great place to take a break, there are various cafes on each floor as well.

    Came here looking for dinner. It’s nice and quiet on the top floor but choices are limited. Shopping is mainly ladies wear. Went to basement of Solaria Stage for dinner instead. It has more local...

    Fukuoka Pref. Fukuokashichuouku Nagahama 3-11-3
    "Nagahama Fish Market is located around 12 minutes' walk from the Akasaka subway station, or it can be reached by using the Nishitetsu Bus service and getting off at the Nagahama Ni-Chome bus stop; the market is two minutes' walk from the bus stop. Renowned for its fresh fish and seafood, Nagahama Fish Market is the fourth largest fish market in Japan in terms of the amount of fish handled, and is known informally as ""Hakata's Kitchen."" With the aim of making the market a friendly place that local residents feel comfortable visiting, Nagahama Fish Market has adopted the latest technology; Shijo Kaikan building at the heart of the market complex has restaurants where visitors can enjoy delicious seafood, as well as Uoching Plaza where people can have fun learning about fish. The second Saturday of every month is ""Citizen Appreciation Day,"" when ordinary members of the public are allowed into the area where the wholesale fish auctions take place to purchase fish for themselves."

    Definitely a letdown. Nothing much happening here. No fish market for the public to visit, not even an outer section. Just a few restaurants in the next building serving food you can get elsewhere.
