There are some places that you can enjoy boat ride throughout Japan, but I definitely say Yanagawa boat ride is the most famous and popular one. You can enjoy the unique view and atmosphere from the boat and it must be one of the good memories during your stay in Japan. In addition to the boat ride, we will visit 2 different Japanese houses. One was a big architecture for the feudal load and another was a small house for a samurai retainer. Enjoy local tour and have fun.

Fukuoka Tour Reviews

Nagasaki tour

Yoshiharu is a very good guide. He was our guide in and around Nagasaki. He is very professional. Nagasaki is a very sobering experience and he made the tour very educational. Every step of our tour ran very smoothly. The timing was good with enough time to see the sights and still get to the next destination. All in all Yoshiharu is a very professional and personable guide. We can highly recommend him.

Good getaway from city! Takachiho is located in the northwest of Miyazaki. Although it takes more than 3.5 hours to get there from Fukuoka, it is worth visiting to see those beautiful sceneries.
