Fukuoka is at the northeast part of Kyushu, a gateway to the main island, and historically to China and Korea.

A broker in the city of Fukuoka told us about the market in September of 2013.
In Fukuoka city, trades were active, and prices were higher. Since land on which to build lacked, more eyes would turn to pre-owned assets and court auctions. Families with children preferred Nishijin, Takatori, and Momochi in Sawara ward for schools. So prices rose; exceeding Y1mn a tsubo in Nishijin. Kotabe, Muromi, Meinohama were also popular areas, so were Ohori, Hirao and Yakuin. Out of the city, people liked Kasuga and Onojo along Omuta train line. In the west, Ito was becoming an academic center with Kyushu University’s new campus. In the east, an Ikea store opened in Shingu; property prices were affordable for those commuting to Fukuoka. There were some apartment built in Chihaya as well.
To invest, Chuo and Hakata wards in Fukuoka were the best, with high trade volumes, and a short supply of new buildings. There might be some possibility of trade gains as well after holding for some years. Leasing in these areas were relatively easy; and rent levels remained solid. As for court auctions, sales prices were quite close to the market levels; even higher in some cases. Bidders were mostly real estate agents. To own a property in Fukuoka prefecture, an earthquake insurance was necessary along with one for fire, even though earthquakes were rare. And since the continent was closer the air pollution of yellow sand was inevitable, but one could still be selective.
