Where is Fukuoka City?

Fukuoka City is the largest city on the large island of Kyushu, located on the western side of Japan. It is a gateway to Asia, taking only 2 hours by plane from Tokyo and one hour from Seoul.

I cannot speak Japanese. Will this be an issue in my daily life?

In Japan, many people might feel hesitant to speak English, even though they understand it. However, Fukuoka’s residents are exceptionally welcoming and eager to interact with international visitors, even if their English isn’t perfect. Speaking slowly can go a long way, and you’ll find that locals enjoy engaging in conversation. Additionally, should you encounter any issues, professional advisors (community managers) are readily accessible in our online community. This platform also serves as a resource for digital nomads, offering assistance with finding places to eat, live, or work.

I would like to start my own business in Japan. Does Fukuoka City offer any support?

Certainly! Fukuoka City stands out in Japan for offering a dedicated English-speaking consultant, aimed at making it easier for international individuals to start businesses. Your first step should be to visit FGN (Fukuoka Growth Next), run by the city itself. Here, our consultants are ready to address any initial questions you may have right at the counter.

I would like to stay for a month or so, do you have any furnished apartments for rent?

Many newcomers initially stay in hotels as they search for a longer-term, convenient place to live, often guided by tips from our community. To find furnished properties easily, we suggest joining our online community first, where several businesses offer valuable information on available accommodations.
