Top 15 Airbnbs In Fukuoka, Japan - Updated 2024

| 8 min read

Overlooking Hakata Bay in the eponymous prefecture sits the sun-kissed, amiable Fukuoka, the largest city on Japan’s Kyushu island. The stunning Naka River almost splits the city into two parts, which were formerly the two towns of Hakata, a merchant town, and Fukuoka, a castle town named after the ruins of Fukuoka Castle. The 2,000-year-plus city is perhaps one of Japan’s most dynamic cities and is particularly known for its ramen restaurants, delish ‘yatai’ food stands, the beautiful old town of Hakata and its architectural marvels, and gorgeous natural areas. All of these should be included in your itinerary for Fukuoka. Exploring this city requires a good deal of time and a great base as well, so here are the best Airbnbs in Fukuoka, Japan.
