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.

Beautiful island! It was almost like stumbling upon paradise. A little hilly if you struggle to walk but the park offer umbrellas and walking canes to borrow. Great facilities, with volley ball court and places to play golf and soccer if you want to have an active time. There are some great restaurants and a cute cafe there too and transport to and from the island is great. It's super easy to navigate and the staff were very friendly. There is also a bunny petting zoo and goats on the island. The flowers are stunning and you could spend hours here without even realising. Definitely best to go mid to late April for the best sakura bloom.

Nothing to see. winter is not a good time to go. We went thinking that the Winter flowers would be in bloom but there was hardly anything to see. Very Hilly Area also.

If you’re into flowers, and very little time to spend in Fukuoka, best go visit Uminonakamichi instead. But if you want to escape all the cities hustle and bustle Nokonoshima is a good laid back trip. Once you drop off from the ferry, board the bus to Island Park directly as there are only two buses per hour. I made the mistake of going to the market to see whats up and ended up wasting an hour waiting for the next bus. Anyway unlike Hiroshima’s Miyajima, this island is much more smaller and simpler with a population of just 700 people. Not that many attractions besides the island park, but good to know the money you spend here will be great help to sustain the small community’s lives.

Always check www or ask Japanese to call and ask. I did not know how to get to the seaside from Hakata Hotel Croom because my friend picked me up but once I crossed the ferry , there was bus waiting to take us up to the park. You have to pay for Ferry Bus and the entrance ticket to the Park .

This island is great. The return ferry trip costs 460 yen. When you get off you can rent electric bikes for 1700 yen for the day. The nature walk is enjoyable. You also get great views of Fukuoka city. The flower park is very pretty. The animals in the petting zoo had water unlike what the reviewer below me said. They also had grass to eat and appeared to be well looked after. I had a thoroughly enjoyable day on the island.
