P.s if you out of budget here our tips
#1 eat less dessert because dessert price and rice in minimart pretty similar
#2 don't think about other people, what to buy bring home
#3 GO AWAY FROM GAME CENTER
( because i spent ¥3.000//₩30.000//USD30 for clawmachine and couldnt stop)
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

After itinerary and all the money that we used now i will give you detail each city and some important travel tips 

#1 BEST TIME TO VISIT 
Cant suggest you as you know 4 season countries always good all the times.

#2 VISA NEEDED?
For you visa waiver, no need visa. But for me Indonesian old passport needs visa, and living in korea. So you can check here, how to apply Japan visa in Korea for foreigner.

#3 MONEY! 
JAPANESE YEN (¥)
Japan is a cash country so prepared your cash for local transport and dining. But for mini mart and some restaurant or souvernir shopping that accept card, use card is better :)

#4 INTERNET CONNECTION
Fukuoka city provides some free public wifi on some touristy spots but not really strong, so better you rent a router in the airport with early booking from your country.

#5 FUKUOKA TRANSPORTATION
Because Fukuoka is quite small, usually after one day city tour people go around to other cities around fukuoka, like Yufuin, Beppu, Oita, Nagasaki, etc. It can be reach by JR Rail ( train) or bus.  So mostly this 2 transportation that People uses in Fukuoka.  
BUT HERE FOR MY HOLIDAY I CHOOSE BUS ALL THE TIME
Why did i choose bus? 
Because i love sightseeing from inside the bus and i just lazy take stairs up and down the station & usually bus has more timeschedule compared to Train ( esp. When go to other city).
