Hakata Old Town

Hakata's Old Town prospered as the hub of Hakata, which was the largest trade port city in Japan during its Middle Ages (roughly the early 12th to late 16th centuries). As a testament of this past, this area exudes the history, tradition, and culture of the era.

Visiting this area will make your travel experiences in Fukuoka more profound; stroll down peaceful streets lined with historic temples and shrines, visit the lively shopping arcade, appreciate the traditional craft and performing arts of Hakata, and experience the lifestyle and culture of Hakatakko, the people of Hakata, known for their love of festivals.
