Shop and amuse yourself before you cruise at this portside shopping mall

Bayside Place Hakata is a shopping mall and entertainment complex adjoining the Hakata Port Passenger Terminal. It has a variety of shops and entertainment venues, including a market selling souvenirs and local Kyushu products, a very popular restaurant serving seafood rice bowls and a sushi buffet, and a large hot-spring bath facility. There is also a large aquarium with approximately 3,000 fish, including sea turtles and tropical fish.

How to Get There

Bayside Place is well connected by bus.

Bus 99 leaves from Hakata Station and bus 90 leaves from Tenjin Station at regular intervals (10-15 minutes).

Portside action

Bayside Place is home to the Hakata Port Tower, an observation deck that is twinned with Fukuoka Tower. Hakata Port Tower is approximately 100 metres high and offers a spectacular view of Fukuoka City, and admission is free.

When to go for oysters and fireworks

From December to March every year, oyster hut operators set up stands at Bayside Place Hakata. Oyster huts are usually found in the Itoshima area of Fukuoka, but the stands at Bayside Place make it easy to enjoy oysters close to Tenjin and Hakata, especially for those without a car.

Bayside Place also hosts numerous firework displays throughout the year, with the fireworks exploding over Hakata Bay.
