This is a nice Shrine, just like most shrines in Japan, that is serene and calm, despite in the city center.
It was raining heavily (and shortly drizzling) on a Sunday afternoon when we came by this place enroute to the Canal City. It was...More

Most shrines in Fukuoka I randomly found by exploring the city. Shrines are everywhere, but Kushida Shrine was my favorite. I honestly do not know much about the shrines or what I was looking at, but this one was the most memorable. This one had...More

You can walk. It takes less than 30 minutes. But use some boots that are made for walkin', not the geta (Japanese wooden clogs)!

Toyota offer 15% off discount for Hertz Gold member. However, I don't recommend this company based on service. I called them 2 months ago to reserve Mark X with ENGLISH GPS but still ended getting a Japanese one 2 weeks ago. Finally I had to drag our hotel front desk in to call Toyota to fix the issue. Toyota finally dropped off a Mark X with English GPS for us...but it was really stressful for us. Times rental car or Nissan should be way better as they are more experienced dealing with...More

BeginsYoung, When you hire a car in Fukuoka, it should be before heading to Dazaifu. Enter the nearest Fukuoka urban expressway JCT, which will save time. We always park our car in Ninomaru parking in Kumamoto castle park. There's also parking near Sakuranobaba Josaien, which is always fully parked when we arrive. There'e manned parking at the other side from the tram street near Suizenji Jojuen. There're some other coin parking nearby. If you mean Suizenji Ezuko Park, I don't think it's...More

Nishitetsu train is convenient to reach Dazaifu. Nishitetsu also has expressway bus from Hakata bus termianl, but I prefer train ride from Tenjin for its convenience. You can include Nakasu in Day 1, if you have time. Cosmos will be in bloom in Nokonoshima Island Park. You can get to the ferry terminal by a bus ride from city subway Meinohama station. Places you mentioned have no damages by the heavy rain this year.
