Great view with canal! It is good to strolling following the canal. There are so many people on Rush Hour time but still good.

This place is huge yet but personally find it hard to navigate. The place is badly designed as a mall and you have to pass thru indoor and outdoor to get to different shops which is especially annoying during winter when it is freezing outside and warm inside. The only place worth walking around is the new wing which is... More

They have many kinds of Japanese Ramen, each store has their own flavours, and all of them are good. Price is normal, so you won't be ripped off. What more you can ask for?

There are two important shopping areas in Fukuoka: Tenjin and JR Hakata station. And if I cite the third one, it is certainly Canal City. Conveniently located between JR station and Tenjin, this shopping complex attracts many foreign tourists. There is also Hyatt Hotel inside.

Canal City is a large scale shopping cum entertainment area with 2 good hotels located in its midst. The numerous shops and dinning options makes it a compelling visit. But...like always, when you go shopping with the Wife, there's more time spent in the shops that anywhere else. But Canal City has a key distraction that helps resolve this perennial... More

Even by Japanese standard, this mall is huge. The unique theme about this mall is that there are plenty of open air spaces (unlike underground shopping malls) and even some water (canal) through it. The location is also very close to the famous Yatais and also entertainment areas.

A spacious mall with different type of shop. Pretty much of the well known brNd can be found here and the Ramen stadium on the top floor was outstanding. You guys should give a try. The mall is easy to access and there will be a water show in the mid. of the mall every afternoon(?) I've seen once. A... More

Canal City was a nice mall to shop at. There is a mixture of local boutique brands, familiar brands like Zara, H&M and Bershka as well as higher end brands like Diesel, Guess and Replay. Lots of seats available for shopping breaks and clean toilets. Do bring your coat if it's in the winter because you have to walk through... More
