From Fukuoka we made our way to Tokyo, but we didn’t really spend much time in the city. We went to see Mt. Fuji and also to go on the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route. On our first day (May 3, 2018) we spent a day at the Fuji Shiba-sakura Festival. It’s a beautiful festival held at this resort full of thousands and thousands of shiba-sakura or “pink moss”. 🙂

Welcome to Uminonakamichi Seaside Park! My favorite place that I visited in Fukuoka and one of the highlights of my Japan trip!
It is a huge national park, stretching 300 hectares. There are so many things to do and so many places to see here. My family and I spent the morning here, just riding around in our rental bikes and exploring this beautiful park!

Only about 5 minutes away from Tochijo Temple, you’ll find yourself at Kushida Shrine! Also known by the locals as, “Okushida-san”, it is widely known for the summer festival – Hakata Gion Yamakasa festival.
Similar to the Fushimi Inari Shrine, it has those orange pillars – just a bit smaller with a lot less people!

The Tochoji Temple was built in 806 AD by famous a Buddhist priest, Kukai. A lot of worshipers visit the temple for the Fudo Festival in January, Setsubun Festival in February and the anniversary of his death in March.
My family and I visited during May and there weren’t many people around. It wasn’t too far from where we were staying so we decided to come and have a look. Click the link below to read more!
