Hakata, Japan overview

On the upper tip of Japan's southern island of Kyushu, Fukuoka (Hakata) is one of the few large cities in Japan that can actually be described as "laid back." Fukuoka is one of Japan's most colorful and fun cities, famous for its raucous nightlife and world-class restaurants. If you're headed here, though, put off the fancy restaurants for a day or two and head to the famous ya-tai alley for wonderful, inexpensive food.
