A beautiful place bunch of tourist visiting specially weekend. Also, you can find here the unique Starbucks. A lot of souvenirs shops and restaurants. If you are staying at Hakata you can take a direct bus bound to Dazaifu which is very convenient.

A really busy place to visit. There’s a costume shop nearby which you could rent a kimono or samurai costumes for some good pictures. Overall it’s a pleasant place to visit with many shops around, but was too packed.
