    Lovely way to see the city in the eyes of a local. We had a 4 hour walking tour and even though it was a very wet day, we enjoyed every moment. We say many sights, tried lots of different snacks and took it all the city had to offer. Our guide was very courteous, friendly and went out of her way to help us out with restaurants bookings and recommendation, even after our tour with her had ended.

Fantastic experience!

We had a great day with our own personal guide, Taiyo, who was fantastic! He tailored our day to suit us completely & nothing was too much trouble. We saw some amazing sights, drank Sake with locals & learned so much about Fukuoka. Highly recommend this company
