    The Hawks Town Mall is a shopping mall in the Momochi area of Fukuoka, next to the Yahoo Dome.

    There are many shops inside, and a Hard Rock Cafe, if you like that sort of thing, but we were very amused by the decor of a supermarket.

    Hawks Town Mall: The most picturesque mall I've ever seen...

    by amambaw Written Sep 5, 2004
    Yes, it's a mall

    I didn't do any shopping at this mall, but it was still neat to visit. From the outside, it looks like a big box, not at all attractive. But once you get inside, it's really neat. The stores line an inner courtyard. They are built into facades that look like tall colorful buildings. There was a neat little Asian goods shop, and a great tea shop. The rest of the shops are name brand chains. If you go, just go to have a look at the inside!

    Canal City Shopping Area: Traditional crafts and High Fashion all in one

    by amambaw Written Sep 5, 2004

    Canal City shopping gallery

    Canal City is not just a mall, it's an entire area where you can find tons of great things to look at and buy. The mall itself is filled with trendy name brand shops, including the Gap, North Face, Eddie Bauer, and so on. Around the mall, there are lots of little shops, and a long shopping gallery that spans over three blocks. The gallery has lots of places where you can buy crafts, clothes and other fun items.

    What to buy: The best shop that I found was in the long gallery. There was a wonderful paper shop that sold writing and craft paper, as well as gorgeous paper prints. Also, look for tea and tea services, including all the accessories. You can also buy Japanese print fabric (for all you sewers and quilters out there).

    What to pay: I spent about 1000Y in the paper shop, and bought two prints and two packages of calligraphy paper. I also got a stamp made for about 1500Y. I'd say that $1USD is just under 100Y.

    Lush: For all you Lushies - you know who you are!

    by amambaw Written Sep 4, 2004

    I was so excited to find a Lush in Fukuoka! I'd been craving Lush, and it was a pleasant surprise, as I had thought there wasn't one here!

    To find this shop, visit Canal City shopping center, near Hakata Station. It's located on the third floor!

    Prices are similar to those at other Lush stores.

    Canal City

    Canal City

    Canal City is a large complex of fashion, theatres, restaurants and hotels.
    It is supposed to be designed for young people. It is not like an usual department store.
    There are a lot of fashion and sports shops in the shopping section. No local shop but all well known.
    In the same building, there is eating section and theatre section.
    I liked the building since the shape is not square, interestingly distorted and the site has a courtyard with a canal.

    CANAL CITY

    by kiwigal_1 Written May 1, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Canal City

    Canal City is a huge shopping mall on the edge of Nakatsu and a 100 yen bus ride from both Tenjin and Hakata Station area.

    The mall has numerous shops, restaurants, 2 hotels, a cinema complex and theatre.

    Sometimes I would come to Fukuoka just to hang around this place! It is my favourite shopping place in Kyushu.

    What to buy: You name it you can get it at Canal City! It was a great place to pick up items that fit foreigners too!

    What to pay: This isn't a cheap place to shop.
