Fukuoka has long been the hub for Kyushu, one of Japan's most important islands. It has long had ties with nearby China, which gives it a certain flavor. It is most famous in Japan for its yatai, or outdoor stalls that can be found along the river in the central part of town. Fukuoka is also very modern, with high tech shopping malls, but there is plenty of greenery as well with beautiful parks and gardens.
