光の街・博多 アイキャッチ画像

[Introduction]

I traveled to Fukuoka, in mid December. While Fukuoka has an image of gourmet town, it has also tourist spots more than I expected. In this article, I will write about illumination around Hakata Station “Hikari-no-machi Hakata” as part of Day 3. In “Hikari-no-machi Hakata”, about 800,000 light bulbs were used for light-up and I enjoyed a variety of winter illumination including the symbol tree.

Following the previous post, I returned from Hakata-Minami station to Hakata station.

There was “Hakata Noodle Street” on second floor of “Hakata Deitos” in the JR Hakata City, a commercial complex directly connected to Hakata station, and I will have dinner there.Hakata Noodle Street

Among the 11 noodle shops, I visited “ShinShin”.Hakata Noodle Street ShinShin

“Hikari-no-machi Hakat” is a winter illumination held at JR Hakata Station Square, and it was the 9th event.

The logo of “JR HAKATA CITY” become more attractive due to light-up.""

That’s it for the article about illumination around Hakata Station “Hikari-no-machi Hakata” as part of Day 3.

In “Hikari-no-machi Hakata”, about 800,000 light bulbs were used for light-up and I enjoyed a variety of winter illumination including the symbol tree. The downside was that there were lots of visitors, but I believe it’s worth a visit even if it is crowded 🙂

In the next article, I will write about Dazaifu as part of Day 4.
