Canal City Hakata is a large-scale commercial facility, home to a variety of shops, restaurants, cinemas, theaters, massage parlors, and more! There are over 200 shops on the premises, including places to get essentials such as women’s and men’s fashion, baby products, cosmetics, and glasses. There is also a 100-yen store, so Canal City Hakata is convenient even for those who don’t want to spend much. The restaurant options are also plentiful, with choices such as Japanese food, Western-style food, Chinese food, ramen, fast food, cafes, and more.

In the facility’s center, there is an artificial river where guests can enjoy fountain shows timed to music. As the fountains go off to the music, the show is different every time and is popular even for returning guests.
Apart from during construction work, the fountain shows are held every day.

In addition, every year around Halloween Canal City Hakata holds a huge costume parade. All participants are dressed up in costumes and proceed from Hakata Riverain Mall to Canal City Hakata.
A costume contest, with prizes for 1st and 2nd place winners, is held after the parade. Because of this around 500 people participate in the parade every year!
