Fast Facts

We are in Fukuoka, Japan

Fukuoka, home to Kyushu University, is the biggest city in Kyushu, with a population of approximately 1.5 million. The trip from Tokyo to Fukuoka takes about 90 minutes by plane. With a mild climate, Fukuoka is said to be one of the most comfortable cities to live in Asia. If one had to express its appeals in one phrase, that phrase
would be “well-balanced.” While the streets of Tenjin, the commercial center of the city, are lined with modern
buildings and department stores, there is abundant nature at the seaside and in the mountains, both located in the suburbs, and numerous cultural and historical buildings such as temples and shrines. With a moderate population, an urban district existing in harmony with nature, and convenient transportation facilities, including the airport, Fukuoka has the right balance of various elements.
