Mojiko Retro

 Mojiko, which prospered from coal export in the 19th century, still has many western style buildings that were popular at the time. It's a popular spot with over 2 million tourists visiting each year, and has retro buildings that are still being used as libraries, cafés and restaurants.
The town lights up at night and you can take an evening stroll while enjoying the sights of Mojiko port and the Kanmon Straits.

Hakata Ramen

 Fukuoka boasts of its "Hakata Ramen". What makes this Ramen special is its thick pork bone soup stock. The pork bone is boiled at a high temperature for quite a long time so that the gelatin from the bone melts, making the soup thicker.
Taste the deliciousness of the thick pork soup mixed with Hakata style superfine noodles.
