Yanagawa city is fifty-minute-local-train-ride away from Fukuoka city. It is a beautiful and peaceful castle town. The main attraction of this city is one-hour boat ride. The boat slowly goes through the moat and the boatman explains popular sightseeing spots. Dazaifu Shinto shrine is dedicated to Sugawara Michizane, the God of Learning. This shrine is especially popular among students.

What to Expect

You can enjoy peaceful atmosphere of traditional Japanese cities. At Yanagawa you can enjoy delicious grilled eels, but for those who can not eat eels, the other delicious Japanese foods are served. At Dazaifu you can enjoy window -shopping on the way to the main hall of the shrine.

“ Exploing Fukuoka ”

It was indeed a great pleasure having Asako as our guide! We immensely enjoyed our day tour to Yanagawa and Dazaifu Shine despite the rains.

Her love for Fukuoka was very evident. Even treated... read more
