How it works
Essential city info, articles & travel tips from our local hosts
Fukuoka is anything but conventional. The feel of the city is drastically different in each district, with just a single mile bringing a total change in pace, crowd, and scenery. Raucous salarymen celebrating the end of the workday at upmarket bars in the city center’s LED-lit tech hub slowly give way to a cooler, quirkier crowd sipping flannel drip coffee (a local specialty) at one of the many hipster coffee shops just a couple of streets away. Serene strolls between traditional Japanese gardens and the historic Fukuoka Castle ruins can quickly turn into mad jostles through crisscrossing shopping streets – or exchanging a vending machine ticket for a bowl of Fukuoka’s world-famous, silky-smooth tonkotsu ramen (an activity that should top any list of things to do). At dusk, as reflected lights turn the central Naka River a thousand shades of neon, a snaking row of the city’s iconic yatai street food stalls magically materialize along its banks, serving some of the Kyushu region’s finest food.

With centuries-old architecture, fantastic festivals, and a street food scene believed to be the best in Japan, Fukuoka is the high-energy “startup city” by the sea with too many must-sees to count. But our personalized tours of Fukuoka let you experience this spectacular city beyond its temples, tradition, and iconic tonkotsu ramen (although you won’t miss out on these, either!). On a walking tour led by a local guide who’s already uncovered every inch of their city, you’ll also experience the things to do in Fukuoka that aren’t necessarily in your guidebook. A private tour of Fukuoka will have you blending in with the locals at the traditional shopping streets, street food markets, and flannel drip coffee shops (a Fukuoka specialty) off the tourist trail. What better way than a local tour of Fukuoka to experience what makes the city so special to the people who call it home? With our wide range of personalized city tours of Fukuoka, your experience will be perfectly tailored to your interests and travel style. On a private tour with City Unscripted, you won’t get caught in a tourist trap – simply tell us what a dream Fukuoka tour looks like to you, and we’ll make it happen.
