Hey there! I'm James, your go-to guide in Fukuoka. I've uncovered the city's secrets hidden in alleys and scribbled on subway walls. Need a shortcut? I'm your map. Feeling lost? I'm your compass. From the bustling streets to the serene parks, cultural venues, and secret parties, I know Swara Ward, Chuoku Ward, Hakata Ward, and Nishi Ward like the back of my hand. What I love most about Fukuoka is its hidden gems—the ones you won't find in guidebooks. I'll take you to hole-in-the-wall eateries, serene bamboo groves, and the electric atmosphere of an Avispa Fukuoka match. Let's escape the urban rush and discover the city's soul together. Consider me your go-to guru, ready to share Fukuoka's vibrant tapestry with you. Just ask, and I'll show you the threads that weave the most captivating stories. See you soon.
