Fukuoka (福岡), city and port, is located on the southern coast of Hakata Bay, which was the site of a storm—what the Japanese called a kamikaze (“divine wind”)—in 1281 that scattered and sank a large fleet of invading Mongols in the 13th century and thus saved Japan from foreign occupation.
The atmosphere is very peaceful and is different than other cities like Tokyo, Osaka or Kyoto. Fukuoka was rated one of the most livable cities in the world for several years in a row.
Finding tasty food in Fukuoka is easier than finding a croissant in Paris. As dusk falls, over 100 open air food stalls or yatai, donned with colorful drapes open for business around the city.
