Initially we were confused as to whether or not our Hakata bound Shinkansen was actually going to Fukuoka (where had booked into the Hotel Nikko). Once there though we fell in love with Fukuoka/Hakata. The people, the food, the October Fest and the shopping.
Shopping ranges from fantastic old traditional arcades down back street ally ways to modern western look of Canal City. Personally I preferred the back ally shopping but the AMU above JR Hakata is very special.
For eating at AMU I actually preferred several Cafes on levels 5 & 6 (I believe) with views to the main street. Both cafes offered delicious lunch time specials, great coffee and wonderful friendly service, and a really good place for me to relax while the good lady went shopping. It was so relaxing.
I also shopped at AMU. I bought a hat & I'm interested in some wonderful hand made men's spectacles. It's a high quality shopping centre that is very handy to JR station, ANA hotel & hotel Nikko.
It's fair to say that AMU is a strong reason for me to return and enjoy Hakata once again, soon I hope.
