First, we’ll leave the school at about 9am and stop by Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine, a beautiful and huge shrine just outside Fukuoka City. The oldest Tenmangu shrine in Japan, it’s a work of art. There is also a wonderful zen garden nearby, as well as the brand new Kyushu National Museum (PDF link. Japanese page here), which we’ll be visiting. The museum focuses on Japan’s connections to Asia, which is a refreshing change.
Next, we’ll drive to Amagi City, and Akizuki (Japanese only), which is a traditional Japanese town that is famous for the beauty of the surrounding scenery, and especially the autumn leaves. It’s a wonderful sightseeing spot, so don’t forget to bring your camera!
Finally, we’ll visit an onsen nearby to relax, before heading back to Fukuoka, hopefully arriving home at about 6pm.
The total cost for all this fun? 3000 yen, including transport, and entry to the museum and onsen. (Lunch is not included.) It should be a great day – hope to see you all there! If you haven’t booked a place with us yet, send us an email!
