What to Expect

☆Wild monkeys are fed in Takasakiyama. Many people might imagine monkeys in the zoo, but monkeys are in a state of nature in Takasakiyama, and there is no cage came to the immediate side of tourists. You can see any monkey in the immediate vicinity from a slightly larger male monkey to a very cute child monkey.

☆"Uimidamago" is an aquarium with the theme of touching animals in the sea.
Umitatago is located next to Takasakiyama and faces the Beppu Bay.
In a huge aquarium with a height of 8 meters and a circumference of 65 meters, about 1,500 fishes inhabiting in "Bungo Waterway" and Beppu Bay etc swim. There are some shows.

Beppu is a paradaise of hot springs famous for its high therapeutic effects, and offers beautiful scenery and various types of waters of different qualities.

☆Hell refers to the crater where fumarolic air, thermal mud and hot water are spiraling from the ground around 100 degrees. Some of Hells offer hot spring bath for foot.

☆I recommend steaming sand baths along the beach, because the sand heated by the steam containing marine minerals is scientifically proven to have therapeutic effects on neuralgia, rheumatism, back pain and other ailments.

☆Walking through the Kannawa hot spring town where steam rises here and there, you can taste the old fashioned hot spring resort that boasts a rich amount of hot water.

“ Excellent tour of Takachiho with personalized service ”

Fumi is an outstanding guide. My mother is a vegetarian and Fumi found a vegan-friendly restaurant for her near the bus station, and then arranged a taxi to see a couple of shrines and the gorge. She also communicated with our Ryokan to arrange a vegetarian breakfast. She was polite and kind throughout our tour and made it a special visit for us. Thank you Fumi!

Fumi:

Thank you for the compliment. It was a good day for the tour with nice whether. There is a variety of foods in Japan. I would be happy if both of you were able to enjoy a meal. Thank you for joining my tour. And I hope you will come to Japan to enjoy our culture some day again.

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!

Fumi:

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.

Fumi:

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.
