Fukuoka is one of Japan’s most travelled cities (next to Tokyo, Osaka, and Kyoto of course). Having already fallen in Japan with recent travels to Tokyo and Osaka, Fukuoka is definitely a place that I will make a stop at next time I am in Japan.
ATTRACTIONS OF INTEREST
- Kawachi Wisteria Garden
- This wisteria garden is the #1 reason why Fukuoka is on my travel bucket-list. But can you blame me? Look at those gorgeous blooms. I could probably spend half a day here.
- Peak season for bloom: late April – early May
- Ainoshima Island
- An island exploding with stray cats (<100 stray cats) – basically every cat lover’s dream. Located only a 17 minute ferry ride away from Fukuoka. UGH the cuteness!!
