JR Hakata City department store is directly connected to Hakata Station in Fukuoka. Being the final stop of the Sanyo Shinkansen and the departing station of the Kyushu Shinkansen, it’s no surprise it’s the busiest station on the island. It’s also only six minutes from the airport, making your visit to the shopping complex convenient and stress-free. Whether you’re casually looking for your next closet addition or are on the hunt for the best gift to bring back home, you’re sure to find something to suit your criteria at one of the various stores. We also recommend checking out the rooftop, where you can see some beautiful tile art and take in unobstructed views of the city.
