Full description
Discover Fukuoka as you would if you were visiting a friend who lived there. Explore the city with a local guide who will make you feel like they’ve known you and their city forever. You'll be paired with guides that are passionate about the place they call home and who choose to spend their free time sharing it with like-minded travelers matched to them. Whether you want to see some of the most famous shrines and temples or shop until you drop in the unique Tejin underground shopping mall, your host will create a personalized experience just for you. Discover off-the-beaten-path neighborhoods where you can really immerse yourself in the culture and taste authentic cuisine. See the highlights, immerse yourself in the culture and live like a local for a day as you stroll through the city, discovering its rich culture, history and food scene. With your thoughtfully-matched host by your side, skip the tourist traps and see the real Fukuoka like a local. Fukuoka is known as a gourmet city thanks to its history as a port which was the bridge from Japan to mainland Asia. Discover the city’s unique food culture by eating your way around it. Pick up tasty street food from yatai (mobile food carts) and of course, make a ramen pilgrimage to taste the silky pork bone broth and noodles which is the city’s most famous dish. As well as visiting the places you’d most like to see, your host will share with you local spots and places of interest to stop by along the way, giving you an authentic insight into local life in Fukuoka. Your guide will also advise you on the best way to spend the following days of your trip, allowing you to discover other attractions in Fukuoka that you will love, reveal hidden gems, and share their favorite spots with you.

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
