Fukuoka prefecture is situated in northern Kyushu, which is one of Japan’s four main islands. It faces the sea on the three sides, with the Sea of Suo to the northeast, the Sea of Genkai to the northwest, and the Sea of Ariake to the southwest.
The capital city of Fukuoka prefecture is Fukuoka and this is the location of the airport and the starting point of many Fukuoka golf holidays in Japan. It’s also possible to reach Fukuoka from the larger island of Honshu thanks to the Kanmon Tunnels and Kanmon Bridge.
The region of Fukuoka is home to a variety of seasonal flowers including red and white plum trees and irises. These make for some spectacular sights on the golf courses in Fukuoka when in full bloom.
Some of the major attractions in Fukuoka include Senbutsu limestone cavern, which is one of the natural treasures of Japan and features stunning stalagmite and stone pillars. Moving from a natural attraction to something man-made and Space World was the world's first space theme park and remains very popular with locals and tourists alike.
If you time your Fukuoka golf holiday right, you can enjoy the Hakata Dontaku which is a colourful port festival held annually in May.
Golfers will find the two golf courses in Fukuoka a pleasure to play and both Aso Iizuka Golf Course and Wakamiya Golf Club are easy to reach, wherever you decide to stay in the prefecture.
