'Fukuoka Full day (not on Monday)':

Description Fukuoka continues its growth as the capital city of Kyushu, while preserving its rich history and traditions. The first stop on your itinerary after leaving the port will be Dazaifu tenmangu. On the way, with a short drive, you'll see 234-meter-tall Fukuoka Tower which it the tallest beach tower in Japan. The tower stands in the centre of the waterfront area called Momochihama (Seaside Momochi) and was built in 1989 on occasion of the Asian Pacific Expo (Yokatopia), which commemorated the centenary of the incorporation of the modern city of Fukuoka. The Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine is housed in extensive grounds covering an area of 3,000 acres. The tranquil garden is planted with 6,000 plum trees and the shrine itself is built on the grave of Sugawara no Michizane, venerated throughout Japan as Tenjin, the Shinto kami of scholarship. Michizane is celebrated as a man pure in heart and deed, and after his death he was deified and worshipped as a god. Next Dazaifu's Kyushu National Museum, Kyushu Kokuritsu Hakubutsukan, which was opened in 2005, it joined the Tokyo, Kyoto, and Nara National Museums to become only the fourth national museum in the country. Lunch at Shoseikan which is located behind main building of the shrine. Enjoy Japanese set menu there. After lunch try 'Umegaemochi', the loasted rice cake as your dessert on the way back to parking. You'll enjoy eating Umegaemochi, shopping at souvenir shops or having tea time at cafes along 250 meter length approach from Shrine. Finally enjoy shopping in Tenjin before returning to the ship
