When should I put out my trash? Is there a day care center near here? What do I do in case of a natural disaster? If you have questions like these, then surely you want answers. Official Fukuoka City LINE Account has got you covered! The linkup between Fukuoka City and LINE services now boasts more than 1.6 million registered friends (as of Dec. 2018). It functions as a communication network connecting the Fukuoka City government with citizens and those coming from outside the city for school or work.

Why did you decide to make this feature?

The Official Fukuoka City LINE Account was created on Apr. 25, 2017. Since then, various checks have been run on it in order to test the limits of the system as well as to further understand users' needs. Using the LINE app, people are now able to easily get information on disaster prevention, trash disposal, raising children, etc., based on their specific needs. As more and more people began using it, we decided to take things further and make it truly official.
