Known as the gateway to Kyushu, Fukuoka is a sunny, friendly destination surrounded by lush, volcanic landscapes.
Already things are sounding interesting. You’ll join one of our local Fukuoka hosts to explore this historic port city, discovering famous attractions like Ohori Park, Kushida Shrine and Fukuoka Castle.
This really is a tale of two cities - along the way you’ll learn how Fukuoka was born of two cities, and stop by historic sites like the Sumiyoshi-jinja Shrine, which is dedicated to protecting sailors and the Shōfuku-ji Temple - the oldest Zen temple in Japan.
Your host can’t wait to share their favorite spots with you; and of course, their city’s heavenly cuisine. See yourself slurping Hakata ramen, with its rich, silky pork bone broth?
Or are you more of a street eats kinda person? Then you could check out a yatai, the street food carts which are ubiquitous to the city. We’d take both options, but really it’s all up to you.
Just let us know what you’d like to spend your day doing, and we’ll do our best to make it happen.

Masumi Endo was EXCELLENT. She was in contact with us via e-mail before the trip and was punctual, knowledgeable and flexible regarding itinerary on day of trip. We basically went on a FOOD tour of the city that was SO tasty and fun! On her own time, she came back with us on the subway at the "end of the tour time" to make sure that we got off at the right stop. Above and beyond the call of duty! Highly recommend.
This was my first trip to Japan and I loved it. I was particularly interested in Fukuoka’s live music scene and nightlife. My tour guide, Masumi, was excellent. She shared useful info about the city, and introduced me to some great jazz and rock venues. I was even able to catch a live concert, thanks to her recommendations. A very fun tour! Recommended!
My local guide, Jessica, was just a really pleasant host. She took all my interest into account and was very knowledgable about the places. I really enjoyed my time exploring Nazoin temple and Fukuoka tower with Jessica. This is a trip that I'll highly recommend to anyone who has only 1 day in Fukuoka.
Just because it’s not here doesn’t mean we can’t offer it.
