Hey there! I'm Mike, your friendly neighborhood host here in Fukuoka. Whether it's wandering through the compact city or venturing out to the countryside for some unforgettable adventures, I'm always up for the journey. From Hakata to Tenjin, Dazaifu to Kurume, I know these neighborhoods like the back of my hand. You'll often find me exploring historical museums, ancient temples, and samurai residences, eager to uncover the secrets of Japan's past. And if you're curious about sumo wrestling, well, I've got you covered. I'm well-versed in the sport's history and culture. Need tips for the best spots to hike? I know all the best routes, whether it's a casual 5-kilometer walk or a more adventurous trek through Dazaifu and Sasaguri. So, if you're ready to explore Fukuoka's wonders, I've got you covered! Let's make some memories together.
