Hey there! I'm Shino, your go-to for all the wonders Fukuoka has to offer. There's something about this place, with its perfect blend of bustling city vibes and serene countryside, that just captivates me.

My adventures often lead me to explore the latest exhibitions in museums, cozy up in quaint cafes, and indulge in the local dining scene that never ceases to amaze. I'm also your insider for the Kitakyushu area, where history meets modern charm, and the tranquil hot springs of Yufuin, a haven for relaxation.

Let's dive into the heart of Fukuoka together, and I'll show you why this city's mix of tradition and modernity is truly unmatched.
