"Daytrips" Fukuoka Things to Do Tip by euskaldun

Fukuoka Things to Do: 98 reviews and 212 photos

I personally would opt for the tour to Dazaifu, even if it is further from the port and getting there will be somewhat more time consuming. However, the Tenmangu Shrine is one of the most important historically in Japan, although the building itself is not really impressive. On the other hand, the Kyushu National Museum is housed in a stunning modern building with nice collections related to Japanese history, culture and crafts. I imagine the tour will also include a visit to the Komyozenji Temple, as it is really close to those attractions, and its zen rock and moss garden is really beautiful.

The Yusentei Garden is a nice Japanese garden, but there are many others which are larger and more interesting. The same goes for the Kushida Shrine. They might be of interest to you if you have not visited other Japanese Gardens or shrines, though. I have not been to the Hkata Machiya Folk Museum.

Enjoy your trip.
