Humm... as far as I know, Fukuoka is pretty much the place that local Kyushu residents go when they want to enjoy the city life, shopping, and events at Fukuoka Dome. I'm not sure if it's comparable to Nagoya, but my comrade's response to this was "We don't season everything with Miso like them".
However, Tonkotsu ramen was the first response before that when I asked if there's any regional dishes there, so that makes me wonder if Fukuoka has unique experiences to offer. I think it's hard for locals to say whether their town is exciting or not, everything is normal to them when it's a part of daily life. So at the end of the day, it usually tends to be better to check a tourist guide. Nokonoshima looks interesting!
From what I generally gather, Fukuoka has a relaxed atmosphere. I remember Level 5's Hino saying that the enviorment allows their creativity.
There are beautiful exceptions though, of course.
