What to Expect

Dazaifu Tenmangu is one of Japan’s most important Shinto shrines, the head of 12,000 Tenjin shrines nationwide, and one of the top places to visit in Fukuoka.

The Yoshinogari Historical Park is an outstanding archaeological site in Saga Prefecture. The sprawling park covers a large settlement from the Yayoi Period (300 BC to 300 AD) where dozens of pit dwellings, elevated store houses and over 2000 tombs were unearthed. It is the largest and most important Yayoi Period site in Japan, and the best place to learn about this era of Japanese history.

Arita and Imari are two towns in western Saga Prefecture that are known for pottery. They were the first place in Japan where porcelain was produced about 400 years ago after kaolin - the mineral essential to making porcelain - had been found at a local mountain and craftsmen with the necessary skills had been brought from Korea into the country.

The tour will be conducted mainly by English materials such as a brochure and a pamphlet.

A Perfect Day In Kyoto

First, the arrangements online for the custom tour were easy to make, with good communication. Next, on the day of the tour, Mr, Yasuda was an excellent driver and a great help to us. He showed up at our hotel early and was waiting for us. He had the itinerary we had set and went over it with us. Asked if we were comfortable with the temperature in the car, etc. Beautiful, clean car, and he was well-dressed and professional. My companion is elderly and uses a cane--Yasuda was kind, patient and eager to help. He was waiting in the car when we finished each place. Gone are the days when we were able to travel using subway, buses and long walks. We will do this again next trip to Kyoto.
