Munakata City is located midway between Fukuoka City and Kitakyushu City in Kyushu, and has a population of about 96,000 people. The two big cities, as well as Fukuoka Airport, can be reached in about one hour by public transportation or by car. The climate is comparatively mild, similar to that of Tokyo.

The city is surrounded by mountains and faces the sea. It incorporates four islands: Oshima, Jinoshima, Katsushima and Okinoshima. Its abundant nature is suitable for agriculture and fishery, with the city's specialties including tiger puffer, squid, Japanese horse mackerel, and yellowtail snapper caught in the Genkai Sea.

Also, the city is brimming with historic and cultural sites, including the "Sacred Island of Okinoshima and Associated Sites in the Munakata Region," which is awaiting registration as a World Heritage Site. "Munakata Taisha (Munakata Grand Shrine)," which enshrines the Three Goddesses of Munakata, is the main historic site. Although it is prohibited to visit Okitsumiya on Okinoshima, located 60 km from the Munakata Region, Hetsumiya of Munakata Taisha is a popular sightseeing site visited by many people throughout the year.

The city established a sister city relationship with Gimhae in the Republic of Korea in 1992, and has concluded a friendship city agreement with Kazanlak in the Republic of Bulgaria, promoting cultural and sports exchanges for young people in both cities.

Munakata City has been focusing on urban renovation in conjunction with its citizens, and many people are involved in volunteer activities. The city has universities specialising in education, nursing and welfare, so volunteers will be available to support your stay before and during the camp.

Munakata City welcomes your team with the rich and beautiful nature, delicious food, history and culture, accompanied by the warm hospitality of the citizens.
