Important Notice - Website Closure

Thank you for always supporting asianbeat!

Fukuoka Prefecture has been operating the multilingual website "asianbeat" since 2005. Since that time, our aim has always been to promote mutual understanding through our shared interest in all areas of Asian youth culture, such as manga, anime, fashion, and J-pop. For the past 18 years, we have been sharing Fukuoka's charming appeal with our readers, making every effort to keep you posted on all that the local area has to offer. Thank you to everyone who has used the site or accessed our content. However, asianbeat will be closing down on Friday 31st March 2023.

We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincere gratitude to all our readers. We truly appreciate your continuous support.

The Prefecture plans to establish a portal site called "FUKUOKA IS OPEN." This will be part of a new initiative to share information about Fukuoka with the rest of the world. Please keep an eye out for it!

Thank you for all the wonderful memories!
