FUKUOKA PREFECTURE

Facing the sea on three of its sides, marine trade and diplomacy have long been key to the prosperity of Fukuoka. As a first port of call in Kyushu, the prefecture is home to a number of cultural and scenic spots for visitors. Outside its lively capital, check out the fascinating mountain villages near Ukiha, and the serene waterways of the former castle town of Yanagawa.
