Fukuoka Tour Reviews

Interesting day

Fukuoka was towards the end of our cruise in Japan and we had been to a number of castles, temples and shrines, we opted to do something different. So we took the train for an hour to go on a boat ride around the moat of a castle. Nice and relaxing, but not worth the 2 hour (roundtrip) train ride. The eel lunch was nice. On the way back, we stopped at the Sukura festival which was a good choice. The choice of stops was our choice. Tadashi was very nice and helpful. We would have been better off staying in Fukuoka.

Dazaifu was beautiful!

Tadashi was a fantastic guide in Fukuoka and invaluable for our trip to Japan. Very considerate and good English. He helped us with our rail passes, then we took a trip for some incredibly tasty ramen and up to Dazaifu to learn about this shrine. We then went to the national museum, and even managed to see a little sakura. He then went above and beyond to find us an izakaya. Throughout the day he took us on subway, buses and trains - great to learn how to use these too.

Hi Peter-san Ohayou gozaimasu! Thank you for your excellent review.. I'm happy to hear that you and your father enjoyed your stay in Fukuoka. I learned that British people don't use umbrellas even when it's just a little rain . Lastly, my wife loves that jam and tells me that she doesn't use it until a daughter family living in Nagoya returns to my house at summer vacation. Thank you so much.. I hope you and your wonderful father will enjoy the beautiful Sakura in Kyoto and Tokyo. Please come back to Fukuoka again someday.! Tadashi

Tadashi-San, Subarashi!

Arigato gozaimasu for the excellent four hour tour of Fukuoka! We thank you for taking the time

Darin  K.

Thank you for your nice comment. I 've enjoyed the wonderful time with the two of you, too. There are still many places I would like to show you in Fukuoka. Please come back to Fukuoka when you have time. Ogenkide! Tadashi

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.

Fukuoka

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.
