The prefecture Fukuoka is part of Kyushu, the big island to the South from the island of Honshu, the main island of Japan. Near both mainlands of China and Korea, it is important transport knot connecting Japan with other part of Asia and beyond its limits.
The City of Fukuoka is the capital of Fukuoka prefecture , and has the population about 1,5 million people. It is located on the coast of Sea of Japan (also called East sea), and is perfectly protected from typical elements of the Japanese weather. That means our students can expect earthquakes and typhoons to be very rare, summer to be warm, and people to be friendly. Who knows whether this nice local personality is connected to such a mild weather or not.
Fukuoka is known for its cuisine. The city has more restaurants per person, than somewhere else in Japan. Nice weather, perfect cuisine and the warm-hearted people will make your stay in Fukuoka a pleasure. Locals are always glad to help you even if yours Japanese is not perfect.
Fukuoka has numerous art galleries, museums and theaters which will give you the taste of Japanese arts. In addition we can mention that the night life here is the best on the island.
