Canal City Hakata (キャナルシティ博多) is a large shopping and entertainment complex in Fukuoka, Japan. Called the "city within the city," it boasts numerous attractions including shops; cafes; restaurants; a theater; game center; cinemas; two hotels; and a canal, which runs through the complex.
Located adjacent to Fukuoka's entertainment district and between the commercial and retail core of the city, Canal City has become a tourist attraction and commercial success for Fukuoka. It is the largest private development in the history of Japan ($1.4 billion for 234,460 m2 (2.5-million sq. ft.)). It is built with a distinctive fanciful style, with many curving sculptures and fountains and city of Fukuoka hardly visible, to create an atmosphere like an oasis away from the rest of the town.
Canal City Hakata is within a 10- to 15-minute walk from either Hakata Station or Tenjin Station.

  • Huge shopping mall ~ Too big to have a look around. It’ll probably take more than a day to look around every shops. I love to look at this beauty of architectural structure. And there is a fantastic performance of music fountain in the evening. It is worth watching. Don’t miss it~
  • A big shopping mall with some specialty stores. It is an OK place to spend a couple hours if you feel like shopping. There was a Godzilla show in the evening we went. A video was projected to the wall of the building with music fountains below shooting water to match the story. Quite interesting for a mall show.
