Kyushu is located on the southwest part of Japan, and there are 7 prefectures.
The greatest number of people in Kyushu lives in Fukuoka Prefecture so that it’s called
“an entrance of Kyushu”.

Fukuoka airport has good accesses;
it takes for 25 minutes by the subway from the center of a city, Hakata station.
It’s not only airlines, but also railways like Kyushu Shinkansen.

So tourists come and visit Fukuoka from within the country and abroad, and
it becomes the best tourism spot in Kyushu.

There are special foods in Fukuoka like ramen, motsunabe, and mentaiko at lined up stalls.

And are various attractive tourism spots;

could overlook the city and Hakata Bay.

There is
“Dazaifu-Tenmangu Shrine”
in Dazaifu city to worship Michizane SUGAWARA called a god of learning,
so a lot of test takers visit here to pray during entrance exam season.
