There is plenty to see at Amu Plaza from special Japanese nibbles to many floors of Japanese goods and merchandise. One store in particularly that spans a few levels of Amu Plaza is 'Tokyu Hands', where there is an abundance of everything from the quirky and cute to every day practical products. The top floors are dedicated to dining, with... More

Due to the depreciation of the Japanese yen, what was once coined as an uber expensive culture, is now accessible to travellers. By no means, is shopping comparable to its South East Asian counterparts. However, it was fun to explore the various variety from food to clothes. Enjoy

On the 9th and the 10th floors, there are many nice restaurants, where you can enjoy different specialities of Japanese and foreign cuisine. On the rooftop there is a pleasant garden,... More

I travelled to Hakata from Osaka by JR, got off at Hakata for a bowl of Kyushu Ramen and the most convenient spot is Hakata City Amu, I ate at the Shin Shin Ramen at Amu Plaza and sent my post card by the post office at Amu.

If you are catching a train or bus or starting work early or finishing late you can find anything from a souvenir to a great meal for a pittance! The Christmas lights outside were amazing.

Mostly local brands of clothings. Level one has a good tibits store which you can get most of local soveniors all in one place. Suggest to walk further into mall to taste test if unsure.

This shopping mall is right next to the JR hakata station, there were many shops and many dining options for you to choose from. I'm sure you can find something that you like here. The mall also next to Marui as well, you can spend whole day shopping here.
