Overview

Welcome to Fukuoka! If you don't know what to do in Fukuoka, take this tour. We'll visit famous and popular spots. The city has a population of 1,530,000 and it's growing every year. I would love to introduce you to this fun city Fukuoka, let's make a memorable time together! ★The tour price per person gets lower if you are more than 2 persons.

What to Expect

In this tour, first we'll visit a place where you can experience Hakata doll painting, you can make your original one and of course you'll get to keep it. Then we head to a restaurant where they serve delicious Japanese food. While we wait for your lunch to come, I'll teach you how to make a paper crane. After satisfying your stomach, we will have a little walk in an old shopping arcade. This shopping arcade has an old history and has around 130 shops such as cafes, tea shop, hat shops, Buddhist altar shops, lantern shop, tableware shops, etc. We can stop and take a look inside the shops if you wish. After walking through the arcade, we'll visit Kushida shrine which is loved by locals since 8th century. And finally, we'll go to Tochoji Temple where has the largest wooden statue of seated Buddha (10.8 meters tall!) and a beautiful 5 story pagoda.

“ great family tour ”

Our Family enjoyed the tour with Hitomi. We visited the Udo-shrine. There you have an impressive view on the Pacific. The shrine itself is build in a cave. And Hitomi tell you why the shrine was built. Afterwards we did go to the moai statues. Where also a small Museum is located. Finally we enjoyed a cafe in Miyazaki downtown. Thanks for all!
