The 400m long Kawabata Shotengai (shopping arcade) will host a night festival complete with a market, live music performances, and a Hakata Traditional Handicraft zone where you can learn how Hakata ningyo (dolls) and textiles are made. Also the ¥500 Hakata ningyo gachapon (capsule machine) will be making another appearance. Get there early as quantities are limited and they are expected to sell out quickly.
