Stunning in terms of aesthetic design and architectural innovation, ACROS Fukuoka Prefectural International Hall is an absolutely breathtaking landmark in Fukuoka. Every side of the building is different, allowing you to appreciate this modern eco-urban wonder in endless ways.
Developed as a hub for international cultural exchange, ACROS Fukuoka is a creative compromise between the desire to retain green areas within the city and the developer's need to create a functional space. The resulting building combines a concert hall, Tourist Information Center and corporate seminar and event rooms with numerous environmentally-friendly touches.
The south side of the building is its most memorable, featuring a unique series of stepped gardens. Appearing like a waterfall of greenery, these staggered levels eventually transition to the public park at the building’s entrance. The site supports local wildlife and contains an impressive 35,000 plants, setting an example to the rest of the world on how to balance nature alongside modern living. The building's atrium also gives visitors an exhilarating view of the gardens from high up, and is surely one of the most memorable things to do in Fukuoka.
Stopping by the 2nd floor information booth is a great way to learn about events in the area and the complex itself. A unique structure in the city, ACROS Fukuoka is a fantastic addition to any sightseeing plan during your time in Japan.
The building is open from 10:00 to 18:00. It closes from December 29th to January 3rd.
