Hi there! I'm Chris, your friendly host here in Fukuoka. What I love most about this city is how it perfectly blends urban vibrancy with natural beauty. One moment, you can be exploring bustling streets and the next, you’re hiking a serene trail or relaxing on a beach. Fukuoka’s local cuisine is a true delight, with incredibly fresh ingredients and unique Kyushu flavors that you won't find anywhere else. I’m passionate about history and enjoy uncovering the hidden stories behind local sites, especially the shrines and places others often miss. Walking through these areas feels like stepping back in time. I also love discovering and dining at restaurants that are favorites among locals, offering an authentic taste of Fukuoka. Whether you’re a foodie, history buff, or nature lover, I’m excited to share the charm of Fukuoka with you. See you soon!
