  • Museum that depicts Fukuoka's history. One of the key items is a golden seal. There is minimal English commentary so I wasn't able to fully appreciate it. Entry is only 200 yen
  • Great place to know the history of Fukuoka and only costs 200 yen Did you know that Fukuoka was the first area of Japan to do trading with China and Korea? Did you know that Kitakyushu was the first area to grow rice in Japan. Also Daizafu was the first business area of Japan. Fukuoka has a long History and a Must see if you visit Japan. Also Fukuoka has 5 Seas surrounding it so that is why the Fish is so Superb in Japan....
