Yamaguchi Highlights: Karato Market, Tsunoshima & Motonosumi Inari Shrine

2 reviews
・Convenient pick-up and drop-off locations in Fukuoka City. Not so early departure tour for a leisurely day in Yamaguchi Prefecture by Sea of Japan! <br><br>・Have a glimpse of Yamaguchi in Japan’s Chugoku region! Akama Shrine in Shimonoseki has a long history and is regarded as power spot by the local. <br><br>・Karato Market is in particular notable for its seafood and sushi, and a can't-miss spot for sushi fans! <br><br>・Experience driving across the&#xa0;Tsunoshima Bridge and visit Motonosumi Inari Shrine which is selected as one of Japan's 31 most spectacular spots. The impressive shrine gates stand in a row and stretch over 100 meters towards the sea, attracting viewers to a fascinating torii world.

If you're looking for a place to get away from the city and quietly reflect on things, this is a place to come to. A beautiful koi pond surrounded by trees provides different views from every angle. Tea house overlooking the pond has tatami mats where you can sit and enjoy a matcha set. Easily accessible by Fukuoka's excellent bus system.

One of the stops during our Fukuoka day trip. The place is absolutely serene with lots of places to sit and be still. We brought a little picnic snack and set ourselves up under the shade of one of the pergolas. Another family gifted us with a bag of fish food, so our 4-year old thoroughly enjoyed feeding the colorful Koi Fish. There are so many hidden gems in the garden that we could have spent more than 2 hours there. Bonus points: we saw a Japanese couple in their traditional wedding attire getting ready to do a photoshoot. From the Tatami House, to the large pond, and the beautiful greenery, definitely worth a visit!

Yusentei Park located in the middle of Fukuoka City is in a nutshell a rare find of a location that will tick all your Japanese Cultural boxes. So many things, quintessentially Japanese here that you will be held in amazement and culturally in a head spin. I have lived in Japan for nearly 15 years now and I am still bewildered that it took me this long to find a place like this! Yusentei Park was first built in 1754 as a place of relaxation for a local Lord. After many years and a complete restoration it was opened to the public as the first Japanese Gardens within the Fukuoka City area. In modern times it has become a designated tourist spot with thousands of Japanese and international visitors alike, receiving calmness and peacefulness within its various activities and views to be enjoyed. by all. The Gardens are a joy to behold. A nice leisurely walk was had with many amazing photos taken in the process. The Koi (carp) were extremely hungry on the day (probably hungry all day everyday) and I got some great photos and videos of them in their natural habitat. I was flying solo on this day so I didn`t partake in the iced coffee and or cold and hot green tea with Japanese Traditional sweets but the next time I visit with family and or friends I will definitely do so. The lookout from this vantage point is truly spectacular! The location is so central that its a quick 5 minute drive from other centrally located places and only a short 15 minute walk from the closest Subway Station which makes it a very do able visit. Highly recommended by me and hundreds of others.

I went here for the first time and although it's difficult to get to it's worth it. Nestled in the midst of the city the atmosphere is relaxing. The green tea and a sweet hit the spot.
