    Fukuoka – where the past and present vie for your love

    The former meets the future in Fukuoka, the capital city of Japan's Fukuoka Prefecture. The bustling big city features an unusual landscape, where the remnants of ancient temples and centuries-old palaces sit alongside modern shopping malls and towering skyscrapers. Located on the north shores of Kyushu Island, along the calm waters of Hakata Bay, the area also serves as one giant playground for lovers of the great outdoors. Whether you spend your days at the beach working on your tan or strolling through peaceful parks, Fukuoka vacation rentals surround you with a host of activities.

    From baseball to the beach, adventure awaits

    Soak up some fun in the sun at Momochi Seaside Park, a sandy beach that hosts a flurry of volleyball players, sunbathers, swimmers and picnickers. Further inland you'll find Ohori Park, where you can rent boats to explore the park's large lake. Fans of spectator sports can root, root, root for the Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks, the city's professional baseball team. Enjoy some old-fashioned retail therapy at Canal City, a massive mall with boutique shops and restaurants. Once you've worked up an appetite, feed your hunger with a bowl of ramen, famously sold at street stalls throughout the city.

    Shrines, skyscrapers and sea lions – Fukuoka has it all

    Fukuoka provides two unique perspectives to view the city – from the observation deck atop the 234-metre Fukuoka Tower skyscraper or the hilltop ruins of the 17th-century Fukuoka Castle. Step back further in time at Kushida Shrine, an 8th-century Shinto temple that hosts Hakata Gion Yamakasa, a summer festival featuring parades, food and live music. For more cultural experiences, visit the Fukuoka Asian Art Museum, which showcases modern and contemporary Asian art, and the Kyushu National Museum, as it explores the region's history. Things get wet and wild at Marine World Uminonakamichi, an aquarium with dolphin and sea lion shows.

    Where the mild things are – Fukuoka sees few extremes

    Winters in Fukuoka are relatively mild, with temperatures rarely dropping below freezing and little snowfall. As the city's low season, winter usually offers the cheapest rates for Fukuoka vacation rentals. Spring is warm, sunny and bursting with cherry blossoms, with highs ranging between 15 and 20 degrees Celsius. Brace yourself for hot and humid summers, when highs hover between 25 and 30 degrees. The city gets drenched in June and July – the wettest months of the year – so make sure you bring an umbrella. Tepid autumns are dry and mild, with daytime highs typically averaging around 23 degrees.

    It's getting hot in here – volcanoes and hot springs abound

    Fukuoka vacation rentals never place you far from awe-inspiring natural beauty. The city is nestled along the shores of the horseshoe-shaped Hakata Bay, and Nokonoshima Island is just a short ferry ride from shore. The island is a popular stop thanks to its pristine beaches and plenty of hiking and camping opportunities, plus sweeping views of Fukuoka's skyline. Much of Fukuoka's shoreline is developed, but you'll find sandy beaches the further south you travel. The city is surrounded by mountains on three sides; delve further inland and explore a lush landscape dotted with active volcanoes and hot springs.
