Take a look at some of the possible highlights or contact me and let me make suggestions based on your preferences (city, countryside, both, historical, modern, desired length of tour, etc). I can make a plan, to suit your tastes and goals.

Feel free to personalize this offer.

Meeting Point

At your hotel / a place of your choice, agreed upon in advance.

Nokonoshima Island Park - Take a short boat trip from the City, to a beautiful, serene and scenic park, featuring huge seasonal flowerbeds (including Sakura in springtime) and overlooking the sea with the city on the horizon.

Dazaifu - A city steeped in history and home to the Tenmangu Shrine; one of the most important and historical shrines in Japan. Experience some traditional culture, not too far from the centre of Fukuoka City. Dazaifu also hosts the Kyushu National Museum, as well as various shops, restaurants and cafes, where you can try the local sweets, including the famous Umegai mochi.

Nanzo-in Temple - Take the train from Hakata, to visit Nanzo-in Temple and see the famous reclining Buddha; an increasingly popular and incredibly impressive site, but still one that is relatively unknown among foreign visitors!

Shopping in Tenjin or Hakata - Time to buy souvenirs or check out some of the many department stores and local goods shops. Let me know what you're interested in and I'll take you there.

Momochihama and Fukuoka Tower - Take a short trip to the seaside and visit Momochi Beach, home to the tallest seaside tower in Japan.

Maizuru Park and Fukuoka Castle Ruins - Take a stroll around the scenic and quite lovely grounds of the former Fukuoka Castle, featuring traditional walls and guard towers. It is especially beautiful in Cherry Blossom season.

Around Kyushu or Yamaguchi prefecture - If you have a destination in mind, just let me know and I'll try to arrange it for you. I'm open to travelling quite far, (subject to prior agreement and payment of a round trip travel fee).

Ending Point

At your hotel / a place of your choice, agreed upon in advance.

What to Expect

Get in touch with me and I'll suggest some plans for you, based on your interests, schedule and goals. Some of my tour highlights are a little far apart, but I'll be happy to mix and match; prioritising the places you'd really like to see and choosing combinations of additional sites and activities, to compliment your favourites. I'll pick you up at your hotel or wherever you like and take you wherever you want to go!

George knows the city and it transportation

I did everything I wanted to do with George. He knows the city and if you looking to visit Fukuoka, explore what might interest you and let him know some of your interest.s. He can also add to your suggestions as he showed me some places that few people know about. Overall I had a great experience with him.

Fukuoaka 6 hour tour

George is a very friendly and knowledgeable local who has lived in the area for about 11 years. We really enjoyed his tour and he was extremely considerate of our group and what our group's needs were. I would definitely recommend George as a private tour guide when you visit the area.
