Hi everyone! ( ・∀・)ノィョ-ゥ

Here comes a short review about the things you can do in Fukuoka. The city is big and there are plenty of things you could in this area! I only stayed for two weeks and had school so, I couldn’t do everything what Fukuoka really offers. However, here are some activities I did:

 1) Tenjin Underground Shopping

You can find numerous of shops and restaurants at the Tenjin underground shopping mall!

When you are looking for entertainment, you will definitely find it in a Japanese Game Center! There are two just next to Tenjin station/Shintencho. Don’t forget to taste one of the delicious crepes from “Crepe de Girafe” – it’s just in front of the G-center.

4) Tenjin Core

The Tenjin Core is the Shibuya 109 of Fukuoka! Fashion, bags, jewelry… you will find almost every shop like the ones at Shibuya 109. This was my Nr. 1 shopping heaven in Fukuoka >w<

If you like Japanese shrines, take a look at the Kushida shrine in Hakata. I have been there with my Japanese friend before we went to the Owl Cafe.

10) Neko Cafe

A must for all catlovers :D
At class I talked about my first visit at the Neko Cafe in Japan and during the conversation my teacher told me that there is one just near the station called Keurig. I definitely had to go there before leaving Fukuoka.

  1. Wow! Definitely there are lot’s of things to do there.
    The owl cafe looks great, Japanese creativity will never cease to amaze me. I wonder if there’re other wild animals cafes out there…
    Someday, when I visit Japan, I’ll surely go to the Moomin cafe. It was one of my favourite cartoons when I was little. It’s super cute!
    And about those shoes… I’m like… ehm… how in the world do they walk on them without breaking their ankles???? O.o

    • Hahah, yes, you will find everything crazy or cute on this island xD I adore Moomin too, they are so sweet! Oh, don’t talk about Japanese fashion – everything is possible there *lol*
