Fukuoka Walking and Public Transport Tour

This tour has a combination of walking and the use of a very convenient public transport system. Even though Fukuoka is a large Metropolitan City of approximately 1.6 million people it is rather compact within the City Center and an easy place to transverse either by walking or using the subway or both. This walking tour of Fukuoka City can accommodate up to 10 members.<br>Pick ups and drop offs at the International Port Terminal / Hakata Station or a local hotel is all part of the service.
$1,396.03 per adult

well this is a relatively small art museum but the space is good for modern art exhibition, i think the best part is that if you have children you can bring them here, there is a corner with lots of children's books and some toys(for kids under 6 years old); for adults there is also a small coffee shop nearby the kid's corner. this is not a place for sightseeing; a place to take a rest instead.

The collection is small, and mostly focused on Asian art from the 1800’s to present. There isn’t much in the collection that is native to Japan, mostly other Asian countries.

As others have said this is an unusual topic for a museum and it is interesting. There are some thought provoking exhibits and helpful English descriptions. In some ways it felt quite broad, and as someone without any real background in the history of the art from the many different countries I felt like it was trying to cover a lot. It was a good way to pass a couple of hours on a rainy day while I was waiting to go watch the sumo (a 20 minute walk away) but otherwise I would not have actively sought it out. The space is nice and there is a nice looking cafe. Staff were all polite and helpful.

I always passed by, but it was my first time to visit this museum. The museum is divided in three sections: East Asia, South Asia and Southeast Asia. Each section is interesting, but in my opinion Indian and Pakistani arts are particularly appealing, because there is not many places in Japan exhibiting Indian and Pakistani arts.

This might be the best museum I have been to in Japan. There was a wide variety of art from different regions in Asia. Some traditional, and some very modern. There were English translations on all the plaques, that gave the history of the piece, background on the artist, and the techniques used. There was also a stunning collection of photos capturing the four seasons. We spent over two hours here and could have stayed longer if we had the time.
