In the central district of the city named Hakata is the location of several old buildings, churches and squares. This part of the city is considered the oldest one.
There are several large parks on the territory of Fukuoka. Higashi Koen is known as the most beautiful one. There are several monuments in this park, one of which is dedicated to the founder of the Nichiren Buddhist sect. Move to the central part of the park and you will see two prayer stones. These stones are the reminders of the Mongol raids – the stones have been taken from defeated enemy's ships. The streets of the city are full of shops and open markets. Visitors of Fukuoka are usually particularly interested in traditional gifts. The most common souvenirs from this place are beautiful fabrics, which are called "Hakata ori" by the local people.
