Japan is an arc-shaped archipelago that streches a long way from northeast to southwest. 
The four islands Hokkaido, Honshu, Shikoku and Kyushu are the main islands making up the archipelago, 
and, if the southwestern islands centered around Okinawa are included, the length of the archipelago 
comes to 3,500 km.

Fukuoka City is located in Kyushu island. The city is the cultural and business center of Kyushu Area 
with more than million inhabitants. For more information about Fukuoka City, see the following Web site:

Access to Fukuoka

Fukuoka has many convenient flight and train connections between other main cities in Japan. 
For example, the Fukuoka airport has more than 40 flights per day between Tokyo, and has many 
international connections which link with neighboring Asian countries. Also we have a very 
fast train connection, called shinkansen, to Osaka, Kyoto and Tokyo etc.
