Fukuoka (Kyushu)

Fukuoka is Kyushu's largest city (and Japan's sixth largest) and still growing. It's made up of two former towns, the Fukuoka castle town on the west bank of the Naka-gawa and Hakata on the east. The two towns merged in 1889 as Fukuoka, though the name Hakata is still widely in use (for instance, it's Fukuoka Airport but Hakata Station). Hakata traces its trading history back some 2000 years, which continues today with visitors from Seoul and Shanghai. Among Japanese, the city is famed for its 'Hakata bijin' (beautiful women), SoftBank Hawks baseball team and hearty Hakata ramen (egg noodles). Fukuoka's warmth and friendliness make it a great gateway to Kyushu, and warm weather and contemporary attractions - art, architecture, shopping and cuisine - make it a good base for regional excursions.

The service provided by Scott and his team was fantastic. The attention to detail and level of responsiveness was fantastic. We managed to see beautiful off thebeaten path parts of Japan thanks to Scott. It was definitely one of the best trips we have been on as a family. In Kyoto, Scott took us to a place out of town and shared with us a temple that wasn't open to tourists. This was magical. We also got to go to the Studio Ghibli museum which my children loved. Seeing cherry blossoms was also a highlight. I would spend longer in Japan, there is so much to see and our time there was too short!... READ MORE
