The Grand Hyatt Fukuoka Hotel is a five star hotel located in “Canal City,” a giant shopping center that is a popular destination for tourists from both Japan and abroad.

“Canal City Hakata” is a shopping mall located in the heart of Fukuoka City, located between the area around Nishi-Nippon Railroad’s Fukuoka Tenjin Station, which is where the city hall is situated, and the business district around JR Hakata Station. Both stations are easily accessible from Canal City via bus, at 100 JPY per ride. The Grand Hyatt Fukuoka is a very convenient hotel that can be used for both business trips and tourism in Fukuoka.


The center of the locals’ energy at the city between Fukuoka and Hakata

“Canal City Hakata,” where the Grand Hyatt Fukuoka Hotel is located, has historically been the place between the Fukuoka area, located by the castle of the Kuroda Domain and bustling with Samurai culture, and the Hakata area, which was Japan’s first autonomous merchant city.

Located on the banks of the Naka River, which acted as the border for these two districts, “Canal City Hakata” towers around a single canal, with large, dynamic buildings that make a masterpiece of a scene that makes us feel as if we’re looking up in the Grand Canyon. 



From the lobby of the Grand Hyatt Fukuoka, you can see the center stage, which is the symbol of “Canal City Fukuoka,” as well as their illuminated fountain shows. It is a unique and special place that is regarded with aspiration by the many people who come here.

Using seasonal ingredients of Kyushu, their skill in upholding their traditional flavor is impressive.

The Naka River, which runs in front of the main entrance of the Grand Hyatt Fukuoka, becomes lined with many street carts serving Hakata-style ramen in the evening. This remains one of Hakata’s famous traditions.
