Guide to Fukuoka City’s Facility Visit and Training Programs



City Overview

  Fukuoka City has served as a gateway to continental Asia since ancient times. The city developed as a base for diplomacy and trade early in its history, which can be seen with its establishment of the Korokan, a guest house for foreign diplomats that served as a departure and arrival point for Japanese missions to the Silla Kingdom in Korea and Tang China. Later in the medieval period, the city became a base for overseas trade, and as a free city with a unique atmosphere, it was where many merchants set out to pursue opportunities overseas.
  Today, Fukuoka continues to develop as the hub of the Kyushu region and western Japan, with the establishment of a United Nations agency, as well as central government organizations, branches of major corporations, foreign diplomatic missions, and financial and service businesses all being concentrated in the city.
  In addition, Fukuoka Airport, major conference venues, and the downtown area are all located within a 2.5 km radius, and shrines, temples, seaside resorts, and state-of-the-art shopping facilities are compactly located in the urban heart of Fukuoka. Fukuoka is a captivating city that perfectly blends Japanese traditions and contemporary culture.


City Strategy

  With the input from many residents, Fukuoka City has created the Fukuoka City Comprehensive Plan, a document laying out the city’s strategic vision to achieve a virtuous cycle that balances improving residents’ quality of life and urban growth. The city is aiming to become the leading city in Asia and has been promoting urban development that achieves harmony among people, the environment and urban vitality.
  As a result, more than 90% of Fukuoka residents praise the city for its livability. At the 2011 Asia-Pacific Urban Forum held in Bangkok, Thailand, Fukuoka was selected as a model example for cities with populations of 500,000 to 1 million, being described as “compact, dynamic, and livable”. Fukuoka City is highly rated both in Japan and abroad as easy to live in and energetic.
