The Fukuoka City Museum is located in the Momochi district, an area of land reclaimed from the sea in western Fukuoka City.

It was opened in 1990 and was designed by the AXS Satow Company.

The museum has permanent displays that showcase the history and culture of the region as well as changing special exhibitions.

Probably the most famous object on display is the gold seal given by the Chinese Emperor to the "King of Na"

The exterior of the building is clad in mirrored glass, which makes for interesting photography.

Fukuoka has a lot of interesting and innovative modern architecture, so I will be posting a lot from there for a while.
