Default Japan Tour: Canal Town Fukuoka

Canal City in Fukuoka takes the "city-within-a-city" theme that has been prevalent recently in Japan and combines it with a shopping complex to create what its creators call a "city theatre" in downtown Fukuoka.


Canal City is home to over 250 shops ranging from cosmetics to sporting goods and houses a movie theater and duty-free shops as well. There are also a number of restaurants featuring a wide variety of cuisines.

One of the main aesthetic features of the complex is the 180-meter long canal that runs through the middles of the site. There are also fountain shows which take place every 30 minutes. Shows at the top of the hour feature music while the others have no music.



Canal City is separated into five areas, Sea Court, Earth Walk, Sun Plaza Stage, and Moon Walk, each with its own specific design and colorization.

The complex is also dressed up with decorations from the various seasons, such as special Christmas designs in the winter and Halloween decor in autumn among others.

In addition to the multitude of ways to amuse oneself, live performances are held on the Sun Plaza Stage almost daily.

Canal City rests between Tenjin and Hakata stations and is easily accessed on foot or by public transport from both stations. Canal Town is also in the vicinity of other Fukuoka attractions such as the Kushida Shrine and Hakata Machiya Folk Museum.
