20/01: No My-Car Day
Did you know that Fukuoka has a weekly “no my-car day”? Every Friday, residents are encouraged to use public transport instead of their own cars. This is part of a global initiative to preserve the environment. Discounted subway/train tickets are available for purchase by car owners during the week, and you can also buy day passes for about ￥500―￥600 that allow you to ride as many trains as you want during that day. If you’re thinking about renting a car during your stay in Fukuoka, why consider the environment and use public transportation instead?
