In April 1995 ACROS Fukuoka opened in Tenjin - the middle of Fukuoka City - as a center of international, cultural and information exchange.
As a pioneer of ecological architecture, it has become a new landmark of Fukuoka, enchanting many with its green step garden exterior – standing like a lush green mountain.
The interior features a huge exhilarating atrium, as well as a number of attractive facilities including a full scale music hall the Fukuoka Symphony Hall, International Conference Hall which has simultaneous interpreter booths that can accommodate six languages, the Cultural Information Center providing useful information for tourists to Fukuoka, Kyushu, and Yamaguchi, and the Takumi Gallery which has permanent exhibitions of traditional Fukuoka arts and crafts.
For centuries, Fukuoka has been a city open to the world at the crossroads of Asia. We believe that the large-scale facilities at ACROS will make it worthy of becoming a new center of exchange.
The name ACROS is an acronym for Asian CrossRoad Over the Sea - Fukuoka（ACROS Fukuoka）
We at ACROS Fukuoka strive to become an Asian crossroad – a center for cultural exchange crossing over the seas and connecting with the countries of Asia.
