Crossing over Nakagawa River, Fukuhaku Deai Bridge connects Nakasu, Hakata-ku to Nishi- Nakasu, Chuo-ku. The name comes from its location where Fukuoka, the western castle town, meets (deai in Japanese) Hakata, the east merchant town. If you look carefully, you will notice that the gazebo area in the middle of the bridge is made of cups and spears inspired by the world of Kuroda Bushi, a folk song of Fukuoka.
