FUKUOKA Christmas Market -- Hakata・Tenjin Christmas Market 2017

Japan’ s Biggest Christmas Market in Fukuoka!

The traditional Christmas Market began in Germany and spread through France, Scandinavia and other parts of Europe. This seasonal event is held in many European cities during the four weeks of Advent, the time in which Christians traditionally prepare for the Nativity of Jesus Christ on Christmas Day.

A variety of stalls and shops ringing the Christmas Tower bring the spirit of the season treasured by the people of Europe. Watch the cold, dreary winter turn to one of merriment and pleasure!

We bring the European atmosphere of the FUKUOKA Christmas Market for your enjoyment.

This winter season will be highlighted by both the Hakata Christmas Market in Hikari no Machi Hakata (Hakata, City of Lights) in front of Hakata station, and the Tenjin Christmas Market at Fureai Hiroba in front of Fukuoka City Hall.

In small German “ Hütte” (huts), handmade European Christmas goods will be on sale! Enjoy drinking hot mulled wine from special Original Mug cups, a different design each year!

Both Hakata and Tenjin will host continuous live music and shows for all, Hakata opening even more shops, Tenjin`s illumination increased by fifty percent! Huge Santa figures also on display!
