The city is an underground shopping mall with lots of stores and eateries to choose from. The pathways are wide and everything is air-conditioned so it's a good place to while away some time whether it's sunny or rainy outside.

Tenjin is a must see for their air conditioned underground shopping arcade. Not only do you get to shop the little boutique stores but you can keep in touch with your travelling buddies since there is free wifi! The food court area in the Solaria portion had many choices to choose from. We tried the tonkatsu and it was great!... More

Fukuoka shopping belt is a haven for women. They have shops everything for women ,neglecting the men. The underground connects to all the department stores so when you tire of the underground shops, you can always scoot to the departments stores via their basements level. If you like their fashion style (conservative and classic, straight cut and some lacy stuff),... More

have to say first of all that I'm not a shopper, but I love going to places like this to check out the restaurants, places to eat and other types of food and there's certainly plenty of that. and of course it's all very exotic. I had coffee at one of the cafes, sushi for lunch at one of the... More

Nothing more than a shopping and food district. But like other underground shopping districts in Japan, it leads to the main roads/ streets of Hakata.

Some have said massive, unfortunately compared to Osaka its quite small, which we think is better. At least if you need a break you can find your way out to daylight / nightlight and chill before returning to the retail thearpy.

The underground is huge, and it connects to all the departmental stores and malls on the surface. Retailers for male and female goods are separated -men's stuff is in the North, and ladies' goods are everywhere else. Plenty of cafes to rest while you shop. I didn't find any store particularly interesting though, but that could be because I wasn't... More

We were here in mid November 2013 and the shopping strip was decked out in beautiful Christmas decorations. It was a fantastic place to shop (in fact the whole of Fukuoka is) - great mix of well know labels and smaller, individual stores. Great place to escape the cold and wind.

Tenjin is an underground shopping attraction. I remember weaving in and around checking out stores. Japan is a fun place to shop, and folks should totally visit. It's free and you only have foot traffic. I would say its like a mall under the streets. I find it useful to know where you're going or follow a map because they... More

It's okay. Shopping in japan quite similar. However it is great to escape from street level cold and have a cuppa while people stream by.
