About Your Trip:
The centuries-old city of Fukuoka is the capital of Japan’s southernmost main island, Kyushu. Hakata Bay at the city’s doorstep was where, in the 13th century, a typhoon—which the Japanese came to call a “divine wind,” or “kamikaze”—famously demolished an invading Mongol fleet. Still one of the country’s major ports and a marvelous tourist destination, Fukuoka has also been ranked among the world’s most livable cities by Monocle.
You’ll experience many of the diverse delights of Fukuoka with this getaway, anchored by a fascinating city tour encompassing sights such as the imposing Fukuoka Tower and the seaside Ohori Park. You’ll also get hands-on instruction in Japanese doll-making (a well-established tradition here), shop to your heart’s content at the Kawabata Dori Shopping Arcade and enjoy dinner and a fishing experience at an exceptional local restaurant.
