Geographical / Landscape description
Fukuoka Prefecture faces the sea on three sides, bordering the Saga, Oita, and Kumamoto prefectures and facing Yamaguchi Prefecture across the Kanmon Straits. Fukuoka includes the two largest cities on Kyushu, Fukuoka and Kitakyushu, and much of Kyushu's industry. It also includes a number of small islands near the north coast of Kyushu. 
Fukuoka Prefecture enjoys a mild, temperate climate and an appropriate amount of rain, which allows residents to live comfortably throughout the year. Although it sometimes snows in winter, especially in the mountains, it seldom snows in urban areas. 
Recent history, culture
Fukuoka prefecture boasts some unique cultural features such as the 700 year old Kowakamai, Japan’s oldest singing and dancing performance, that is held only once a year in the Shinto shrine in Oe and the Toro Doll of Yame Fukushima, that has been designated as one of Japan’s most important intangible folk-cultural assets.
