This quarter of the city, whose subway stop takes the same name, is one of the corporate centers of Fukuoka City, and is located a few blocks west of Tenjin. Large, new office buildings crowd most of the area, but to the far west, in 3-chome, there lies Maizuru Park. Also in the area are numerous government satellites and outfits, like Hello Work Fukuoka and the Legal Affairs Bureau, not to mention the Fukuoka High Court. In the heart of all the bureaucracy, you may be surprised to find the Chuo-ku Sports Complex. Visitors to the region are more than likely to find themselves in the bordering Daimyo, Keiyaki-dori and Tenjin areas, unless they are on here on business. If this is the case, then they should be aware that there are some decent hotels in the area.
