Kitakyushu is among one of the most popular places for foreigners who are moving to Japan for work for jobs in science, research & development, as well as innovation. It is one of Fukuoka’s busiest industrial zones with numerous manufacturing plants littered around the city. Village House offers various apartments in Fukuoka prefecture for foreigners. You could rent a room in properties like Village House Kokuraminami or Village House Numakoyanagi to situate yourself in these hotspots.
You could also consider staying in Iizuka. Iizuka city is on its way to become the Asian Silicon valley with technology, industrial development, and research as its main economic drivers.
