Fukuoka is historically a port-of-call for merchants and traders from the rest of Asia, and their influence has left an indelible mark on the history and culture of Fukuoka. Case in point, the Kyushu National Museum, the only Japanese National Museum dedicated to all Asian civilizations, is situated in Dazaifu, Fukuoka. Or perhaps you will be more interested in the Yatai, pushcart food stalls found only in Fukuoka, serving up delicious bowls of famous Hakata Ramen before disappearing overnight.
