Hi, I'd like to visit Fukuoka in November. Would like to know how Fukuoka is like compared to Osaka. I had a great time in Osaka shopping because the shopping was very compacted into a shopping strip eg. Shinsaibashi-suji. Whether rain or cold, it was easy to just nip into shops as I walked down the covered walkway. Does Fukuoka have a shopping strip like Osaka? Reason I ask this question is because I'm a shopping tourist, and dislike 'scattered' shopping as I don't like to walk too much to shop.
Hello all. I was wondering if it would be worth buying a Kyushu rail pass as opposed to buying tickets per trip. My only travel will be from Fukuoka/Hakata to Kagoshima and back (round trip). The JR website does not list the prices for single trips. Thank you. Jenny

Need your advice on a budget hotel for a female that could be easily accessed at night. The festival ends around 11p.m. on the 8th of August, and I will use public transportation. (the festival is on the beach right near JAL SeaHawk)
Will be spending X'mas Eve/Day in Fukuoka, and would like a recommendation for a real special and nice dinner place - probably something more than just ramen or street stall.
Going to Hokkaido for ski trip from 20 Dec to 3 Jan, and I will be stopping over in Fukuoka enroute to Sapporo. Wondering how many days should I spend in Fukuoka/areas around (Aso? Beppu? Kumamoto?). Was thinking of say around 4-5 days (till 25 Dec) then head north to Sapporo. Any ideas/ suggestions as to number of days / itinerary ... any festivals / special things to see/do during winter, etc?? Happy to spend 1-2 more days down South if necessary ...
Last minute planning and contemplating taking a short trip to Fukuoka for New Years. Putting the tourist spots to the side as well as the red lights of Nakasu, would anyone recommend spending NY eve in Fukuoka?
I apologize for the multiple postings, but my wife and I will be travelling in Kyushu with our two year old daughter. We have friends in Kumamoto and will be spending the bulk of our time there, but would also like to spend 1-2 nights in another location. Nagasaki and Beppu are the two places which occur to me, but we are open to others. Does anyone else have a good idea, we go for both relaxation and sightseeing.
Hello all, I currently work in S. Korea, and am going this weekend to Fukuoka to get my visa processed. A few questions for you knowledgeable Japanese travellers, or those who have been to Japan! Could someone please help me out with language basics? Where is the best place online to find a translator or list for common courtesy phrases (hello, good bye, thank you, please, etc.)? Also, does anyone know if Saturday is considered a working day for public offices? I'm going on Friday, and I'm worried that I won't get there in time to process my visa in one day. The Korean consulate will have my passport, so I won't be able to leave until I get it back!!! Finally, what is the best way to get around Fukuoka: bus, subway or cab? And what were some of your favorite things to see? Hope someone can help! Cheers, Amanda
