Overview

Will visit a very panoramic viewing spot at the north edge of Kyushu island. This is not known for foreign tourists at all, but just 30 minutes walk to a hill, about 360m altitude, amazing view with a comfortable wind. You will find yourself that it is really worth taking a walk. From the hill, you will be able to see my small home town and how north edge of Kyushu land finishes.

What to Expect

With your 30 minutes walk to the hill, very nice panoramic view are seen; the channel between Honshu island and Kyushu island, together with nice town view we started climbing. It is really breathtaking. The altitude of the point is around 360m, and a wind is always blowing, which you will feel comfortable after the trek.
This view point is very popular for local people, but not for tourists at all. Please be the first tourists to witness the scenery with me!
The path still continues to the top of Mt. Tonoue, where it preserves another panoramic view. On your way to the mountain top, you will also can look back how the vantage hill is like, and will see the range of mountains to the south of Kyushu island. It takes about another 30 minutes one way. We can continue to the top, or stay at the grass field hill. There are several wooden tables and chairs at the hill and the top of the mountain. So we can enjoy our picnic teatime, beer, coockies, etc, if you want.

Important

Except Monday, I will make myself available as a guide after 7-8 PM in Tokyo-Kawasaki-Yokohama zone.

(Update in April 2018) I now live in Tokyo. I will occasionally go back to my home town, when I can hold this tour.
I will not ask you to cover my flight fee, but I may need to book a flight in advance for price. Therefore, if you are interested, please let me know with a ahead of time. My apologies that I can only guarantee the tour on Monday, but if you ask me my available date more than month ahead, I may be able to handle a schedule for you. Thank you for your understanding.

---------(Below is about the tour)-----------
It is 100% natural field activities. Once we enter the trail, there is no toilet, no building, no vending machine, no trash. We will climb altitude 300m with 30 minutes walk. Most of the trail is well maintained, but some part we go through rocky part, and slippery slope. Therefore, please prepare your clothes and shoes to make yourself comfortable (No high heel, ladies). You will be surely sweating, so the spare T-shirt and a towel, some plastic bottle of drinks will definitely help you. If you are not sure about your equipment, you can ask me and I can give you an advice.

After we meet each other at JR Moji station, we will use a local bus to move to the foot of the mountain.
For your information, after you come back from the mountain, and you want to refresh yourself, there is one spa called "Raku-No-Yu", 5 minutes from Moji station, and I can take you per your request (entrance fee is 750yen, not included as a guide fee). read more

“ Awesome tea tour ”

Yasu is such a great guide. He guided me to the cosy tearoom and I was learning so much about japanese tea culture. Thank you for your planning and awesome information, Yasu! I wrote a story about him on my blog, but story is in Finnish: menaiset.fi/yasu

YASUHIKO:

Haha! Thank you from me, too. It was such a lovely moment to visit a tea shop in Fukuoka. I am really happy you enjoyed the tour. See you later on. I live in Tokyo now, and you may want to be here as Tokyo Olympic 2020 is just around the corner. :)

“ Exceptional service by a knowledgable, efficient and well-spoken guide. ”

I contacted Yasu only a couple of days before I visited Fukuoka, and in rapid correspondence he agreed not only to suggest solo activities for my very brief visit but also agreed to meet me the next day in Nagasaki. This involved a considerable round-trip train journey on his part. He met me on time; he had the day all planned out; and we saw and did much more - and at a much better price - than I could have either solo or on an excursion from the cruise ship I was traveling on. We saw several of the important memorials and peace institutions; the glorious Glover Gardens; shops; surviving pre-war neighborhoods; and the harbor. We walked, and used the excellent tram service. Throughout, Yasu, with fluent English and humor, engaged in casual conversation about travel, Major League baseball,... read more

YASUHIKO:

Dear Martin, Thank you very much for your complement. I was also happy to have guided you in Nagasaki. And I also realized that Nagasaki is such a lovely town with history, many temples, gardens, parks, etc. Your review gave me a power to move forward. Please contact me when you come to Japan again, also in Tokyo. (Up to Tokyo Olympic Games 2020. :) May the Force be with You. Regards, -Yasu
