Many wealthy merchants flourished in Hakata during the Sengoku period (approx. 1467–1568), but the fortunes they amassed made the area a military target and repeated attacks saw much of it burnt to the ground. However, in 1587 Toyotomi Hideyoshi allied with local merchants to revive the area as a major commercial hub. The main street of that time became a focus of further reconstruction work following World War II, when it was expanded to a width of 50m and renamed Taihaku-dori, which roughly translates to “Hakata’s Main Street”. It stretches 1.8 km from Hakata Station to Fukuoka Sun Palace and is a great starting point for any Hakata adventure.
Along the east side of Taihaku-dori is Gokushomachi. This historical area contains many shrines and temples, including Japan’s oldest Zen temple, Shofukuji, which was built in 1195. Nearby Tochoji temple is also worth checking out for its 10.8-meter-tall 30t Buddha statue and hexagonal hall. For a further “taste” of Japanese history, head across the river to the Katakusa area, where you’ll find the sake brewery Hakata Hyakunengura. Dating from the early Meiji period, the elegant building stands out from its urban surroundings.

From the Meiji Period until the early 1960s, Taihaku-dori was a booming business street, with trading companies and the Daimaru department store among those attracted to the area. In 1951, Café Brasileiro, beloved hangout of novelists such as Ashihei Hino and Kyusaku Yumeno, moved into the area and has been a favorite of local business men and women ever since.
From merchants to businessmen, Hakata’s economic movers and shakers have long been drawn to Taihaku-dori. The successful opening of the JR Hakata City building in March suggests it will continue to thrive into the future too.

戦国時代、多くの豪商が活躍した博多の町。巨万の富が集まるこの町は戦国武将たちの的となり、幾度となく戦火に見舞われ、町の大部分を焼失した。 しかし、1587年に豊臣秀吉と博多商人が行った復興計画「太閤町割り(たいこうまちわり)」により町は整備され、商都・博多として再生することとなる。その際、最初に縄張りがなされた「市小路」を1939年に拡張し、戦後の復興事業で幅50mに広げられたものが今の大博通りだ。 現在では、JR博多駅前から福岡サンパレス前までを結ぶ約1.8㎞を指し、その呼び名は「博多の町の大通り」に由来する。そんな、博多の町の基準線とも言うべき、大博通り周辺をぶらり散策してみよう。
大博通りの東側、御供所町は多くの神社仏閣が立ち並ぶ歴史ある町。1195年に建立された日本最初の禅寺・聖福寺では、「太閤町割り」の際に作られた焼け石や焼け瓦を使った土塀「博多塀(はかたべい)」をはじめ、堂々とした山門を見ることができる。東長寺の高さ10.8m、重さ30tを誇る福岡大仏や六角堂も必見だ。神社仏閣で博多の長い歴史に触れたら、堅粕に位置する「博多百年蔵」にも足を伸ばしたい。都市高速の高架が頭上を走る近代的な景観の中、明治初期に建てられた趣のある酒蔵はいっそう目を引く。博多の”現代”と”昔”が同居する貴重なエリアだ。

明治期~昭和30年代の大博通りは、1963年まで2代目の博多駅が活躍していたこともあり、商社や博多大丸デパートなどが集まるビジネス街だった。 1951年には店屋町に火野葦平や夢野久作など多くの文化人が愛した「カフェ ブラジレイロ」が移転。周辺で働くビジネスマンやOLの憩いの場所として愛され続け、今でもノスタルジックな雰囲気とコーヒーを楽しむ客は後を絶たない。
博多の商人が愛した町々を南北に貫く大博通り。今も、”ビジネスマン=商人”たちが行き来し、博多を盛り上げる原動力を生み出している。今年3月に開業したJR博多シティ効果もあり、ますます目が離せないエリアだ。

전국시대에 많은 거상이 활약했던 하카타에는 엄청난 자본이 모여들었기 때문에 무사들의 표적이 되었고 몇 차례의 전쟁을 겪으며 전성기 때의 모습을 잃고 말았다. 하지만 1587년에 도요토미 히데요시와 하카타 상인들이 실시한 복구 계획 덕분에 거리가 정비되며 근세 도시 하카타로 되살아나게 된다. 이때 만들어진 길을 확장한 것이 지금의 다이하쿠도오리(大博通り). ‘하카타의 대로(大通り)’에서 유래한 명칭이다.
다이하쿠도오리 동쪽, 고쿠쇼마치에는 절과 신사가 많다. 일본 최초의 선종사원 쇼후쿠지에서는 복구 계획 실시 때에 만들어진 토담을 비롯해 위엄 있는 정문을 볼 수 있다. 도쵸지의 후쿠오카 대불과 롯카쿠도도 유명하다. 다음으로 ‘하카타 햐쿠넨구라’. 메이지 초기에 지어진 운치있는 주조장이 시선을 잡아끈다. 하카타의 현대와 과거가 공존하는 곳.

메이지 시대~쇼와 초기의 다이하쿠도오리는 하카타 역의 옛 역사와 각종 상사, 하카타 다이마루 백화점 등이 모인 시내 제일의 비즈니스가였다. 1951년에는 덴야마치에 많은 문화인들이 사랑했던 ‘카페 브라질레이루’가 이전했다. 주변에서 근무하는 직장인들에게 사랑받아왔고, 지금도 향수를 불러 일으키는 분위기와 커피를 즐기려는 손님들로 북적인다.
현재에도 많은 비즈니스맨들이 다이하쿠도오리를 오고 가며 하카타에 활기를 불어넣고 있다. 올해 3월에는 JR하카타시티가 오픈 하는 등 한시라도 눈을 뗄 수 없는 곳이다.
