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.

Fukuoka City Museum is located near Fukuoka Tower. If you take Subway, the nearest station is Nishijin. The main attraction of this museum is “gold seal” that was given to a Japanese ruler by Chinese Emperor of the Han dynasty. Other exhibits are also interesting. The entrance is only $2. It is strongly recommendable to pay a visit.

One of most impressive to see is all about the arrangement, very neat and tidy, clean and easy to follow even for such foreigners like me. Only thing is about no pictures allowed to take and most of the details explanation done in Japanese kanji letters with very limited info in English.

Beneath the imposing bronze sheen of the Dome and the reaching silver spire of the Tower sits the reassuringly intimidating glass and stone edifice of the Fukuoka City Museum. Among the many repositories of Fukuoka’s history that we have, the city museum is quite possibly the top place to visit. First opened in 1990, the Fukuoka City Museum has some of the most important collections and artefacts from this very important part of Japan. It tells nothing less than the entire history of what is now, after many changes in the swirling maelstrom of time, Fukuoka. Around the museum are avenues and side paths of trees, punctuated by beguiling artworks atop stone plinths. Dominating front and centre of the museum complex is a large still pond which would not look out of place in the garden of an English country estate; its broad shimmer is a trusty spot for selfies. You can get the subway to Nishijin to get here if you don`t mind a bit of a walk (although the sage traveller would save their legs for the museum itself) or get a Tower-bound bus almost to the door of the museum. The museum consists of a single building with a mirrored glass exterior. The entrance is ensconced inside a grand stone arch upon four mighty pillars which cut deeply into the front, forming almost a short tunnel to the clear glass entrance. Look up as you walk in to see the tall windows of the upstairs café. Enter the doors into the large bright atrium that forms the entrance of the museum, the curved ceiling making the place feel a bit like a converted Victorian railway station. The far side of the atrium features a broad staircase that leads up and then out in two wings to the higher floor that runs like a mezzanine around the atrium. The lower floor has the museum bookshop and a map by the doors to orientate yourself. Visitors are advised that umbrellas and pushchairs are not permitted inside the museum. Photography is allowed but not everywhere so do look out for signs. The three exhibition spaces of the museum (Permanent, Feature and Special) are all on the higher floor. The temporary exhibition spaces change several times a year. On my visit, they were hosting a very popular exhibition devoted to the works of Studio Ghibli. The nature of having large and ever-changing exhibitions makes the Fukuoka City Museum well worth a revisit not just once but often.
