Introducing Fukuoka Prefecture

The northern prefecture of Fukuoka will be the arrival point for most visitors to Kyūshū, whether they cross over by road or tunnel from Shimonoseki or fly straight into Fukuoka city’s international airport. The city of Kitakyūshū (population 1, 000, 150) is northernmost, but most travellers will want to head directly to less industrialised areas, starting with Fukuoka.
