After praying for good luck at the Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine (National Important Cultural Property) which is famous as an academic god, we will go around the tourist spots in Fukuoka city.

What to Expect

Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine (National Important Cultural Property) has various benefits such as mischief and home security, as well as passing examination.

In Dazaifu, sticky rice cake called Umegayamochi is popular. If you like somesweet, I recommend it.

The 234-meter high Fukuoka Tower boasts the highest in Japan as a beach tower.
From the observation room 123 meters above the ground you can see Fukuoka city and Hakata bay.

About 100 shops are lined up in Tenjin underground shopping street with a stone pavement . Besides the underground passage of the subway station, 20 buildings and shopping zones are connected from the underground shopping street. It is attractive that you can shop without getting wet even on rainy days.

Kushida Shrine is the Sochinju (the center place to pray for local gods) of Hakata. It is also known as the departure point of "Oiyamagasa'' (Chasing Yamagasa) of Hakata Gion Yamagasa which is a festival representing Fukuoka city.
You can see the "Kazariyamagasa'' (decoration of Yamagasa), which is permanently installed.

The city view from not only Fukuoka Tower but also the bus on the city highway will be enjoyable.

“ True professional ”

We engaged Fumi to assist with translating work. She took to the job with 100 percent professionalism. She knows the region and worked tirelessly for us.


That's too much praise. But I appreciate you telling me that. Thank you. I hope that your work will be successful.

Awesome guide, fantastic time! Highly recommended!


Thank you for your nice comment. How was the first experience of the hot spring and animals in Beppu? There are various hot springs, so if you have a chance, please try other type of the hot springs and other sightseeing spots next time. I hope that Beppu is one of your favorite places.

“ Dazaifu Tenman-gu shrine & seaside Momochi ”

Fumi met us at the pier to take us to Dazaifu. Very beautiful shrine surrounded by so many impressive years-old camphor and plum trees. The history itself was just fascinating. Before returning to the ship, we had a kaiseki dinner which was so unique in its presentation and flavour.Just exquisite! Thanks Fumi for a wonderful and memorable day in Fukuoka!


Thank you for your comment. It was good that you enjoyed the shrine, dinner and night view. I am glad I could help with your important travel. And I'm very happy to hear that the tour will be a nice memory for all of you.

“ Kokura tour in Fukuoka ”

Picked up at noon from the cruise terminal in Fukuoka for a 6 hours private tailored tour in Kokura and surroundings. Visited the castle, the market, attended a maccha tea drink/ceremony and then went on to the kanmon straits ports (Mojiko and through the tunnel to Shimonoseki) before heading back to Fukuoka. Fumi planned the tour, made changes to it when due and in whole made any effort that we get the most of our tour. A very nice person, diligent and very much familiar with the area. Recommended.


Thank you for your comment. I would like to make efforts to become a more better guide. And I hope this tour will be one of good memories in Japan.

“ Visit to Shoshu Brewery and scenic drive ”

Fumiko met us from the cruise ship at 8:30 and was very prompt. We drove to the brewery and had a wonderful tour and sampling of the various drinks. We then had a delicious lunch for only ¥1200 each of typical wonderful Japanese food. We then toured a glass factory. We then had to make away very quickly back to the cruise ship as all time was disappearing. Thank you again for a great tour.


Thank you for your great review, Cally. I am very happy to hear you really enjoyed the tour. Please enjoy the rest of the travel and convey my hello to all members of your family. Thank you !
