Nakasu is the busiest street on Kyushu. Tenjin is popular as a fashion capital and is a popular shopping spot.
Nakasu is the busiest street on Kyushu, located in the eastern part of Fukuoka City, and between the Naka-gawa and the Hakata-gawa rivers. About 3,500 restaurants stand close together in Nakasu, street stalls line the Naka-gawa River, and large-scale shopping centers such as Hakata Riverain, cooperate with each other to produce the din and bustle of the amusement district.
Tenjin is a gorgeous area, with the business streets in harmony with the shopping streets. Large department stores, boutiques, and composite multi-function buildings are concentrated here. Fashionable coffee shops, restaurants, and everyday goods stores have been opening one after another.
In the evening, from Haruyoshi-bashi Bridge in Nakasu to Daimaru Department Store, or along Showa-dori Street, street stalls, which are a feature of this district, stand side by side to serve a variety of dishes such as Chinese noodles, 'oden,' tacos, and pizzas to you in a casual manner. Young or old, men or women, whoever is sitting next to you is your friend. Such an atmosphere is enjoyed at the stalls.
