The Fukuoka Futures Exchange was a Japanese commodity futures exchange trading contracts on agricultural products.
The exchange was first founded as a rice exchange in 1893 in Shimonoseki, Japan (possibly originally?) as the Kanmon Commodity Exchange. It was closed during World War II, and reopened in 1953. In May 1998, the exchange shifted names to the Fukuoka Futures Exchange and relocated to Fukuoka.
