New Facilities At Cruise Ship Pier Announced

The Port of Hakata Development Co. Ltd. announced details for a new commercial facility at Hakata Port. The management will be overseen by drugstore company Carel Plus. An increasing number of cruise ships from China and elsewhere dock at the central pier, which means an increase in the number of tourists and crew members. The company will invest approximately ¥400 million into a one-storey, 2,400 square meter facility scheduled to open in December. A range of useful services will be on offer, including a convenience store, restaurants, as well as bicycle rental and tourist information. Source: Nikkei Shimbun, 4/19/2017
