Hakata Machiya Folk Museum
Tucked away deep in the heart of Nakasu-kawabata, this small museum dedicated to a fleeting age in Japanese history is a great destination for history buffs. The building itself is one of the few structures in Fukuoka that survives from the Meiji era (1868-1912). Inside, visitors can steal a glimpse of what life might have been like during this tumultuous era of modernization. Local crafts are showcased as well, including some live craftsmen. Visitors with some Japanese ability will find the audio-exhibits devoted to the local dialect particularly interesting. An attached souvenir store sells every craft ever produced in Fukuoka.
