Hakata Port Tower博多ポートタワー

Observation Tower

This tower symbolic of Hakata Port was built in 1964. The observation deck 70 meters above ground is free for public use, and from there one has a 360-degree panoramic view of Hakata City, Hakata Port, and the boats that go to and fro across the sea. At night it is crowded with people who come to see the illuminations and the sea lit up in beautiful, bright colors.

          The most northerly of Kyushu island's prefectures, Fukuoka comprises castle towns, seaside parks, and Hakata ramen, one of Japan's most famous noodle dishes. Whether due to its good location or its unique charm, the prefecture's capital, Fukuoka city, has been voted one of the most desirable places to live in the country—a close-knit community, a thriving food scene, and accessible nature combine for irresistibly laid-back city vibes.
