Fast ferry to Busan?  (5 Answers)

Hi there,

My wife and I are travelling to Japan for the first time at the end of July / start of August. We've got 2 1/2 weeks where we're planning to travel most of the central and southern part of Japan (Honshu).

We've got a plan to get to Fukuoka by train, and take the ferry over to Busan in South Korea, staying overnight there and returning the next day.

Could anyone help me with any recent experience of the Beetle fast ferry I've heard about? How easy is it to book and are there any issues visa-wise with departing and re-entering Japan on a tourist visa?

Many thanks,

Ingmar

Buying a Kimono / Yukata in Fukuoka.  (3 Answers)

Hello there,

I'm interested in buying a new Kimono / eventually Yukata. Is there any good shop in Fukuoka that you would recommend?
I'm looking for something rather classic / Unicolor parts. (Kimono, Juban, Haori, Obi and Hakama)
Unless the prices are an absolute killer, I would rather not buy them from second hand stores.

I have been looking around the web, but have only found suggestions about shops in either Kyoto or Tokyo / Web shops (about which I'm a bit skeptical)

Thanks a lot for your Answers and Suggestions!

Ideas for itinerary in and around Fukuoka City  (3 Answers)

Hi,
I'm spending about a week in Fukuoka City with my family (4 of us - spouse, 2 kids who are close to 20, myself) and we have about a week. I'm trying to put together a quick itinerary at short notice and I'm wondering if I could have recommendations on what to see/do/eat in and around Fukuoka. Attractions outside of the city however would have to be day trips.
Will be arriving in Japan at the end of Nov, leaving about 8 - 9 days later, on Dec 8.
Thanks.

Fukuoka vs Osaka  (6 Answers)

Hi, I'd like to visit Fukuoka in November. Would like to know how Fukuoka is like compared to Osaka. I had a great time in Osaka shopping because the shopping was very compacted into a shopping strip eg. Shinsaibashi-suji. Whether rain or cold, it was easy to just nip into shops as I walked down the covered walkway.
Does Fukuoka have a shopping strip like Osaka? Reason I ask this question is because I'm a shopping tourist, and dislike 'scattered' shopping as I don't like to walk too much to shop.

Where bnesides Kumamoto to visit?  (14 Answers)

I apologize for the multiple postings, but my wife and I will be travelling in Kyushu with our two year old daughter. We have friends in Kumamoto and will be spending the bulk of our time there, but would also like to spend 1-2 nights in another location. Nagasaki and Beppu are the two places which occur to me, but we are open to others. Does anyone else have a good idea, we go for both relaxation and sightseeing.

Visa run to Fukuoka  (2 Answers)

Hello all, I currently work in S. Korea, and am going this weekend to Fukuoka to get my visa processed. A few questions for you knowledgeable Japanese travellers, or those who have been to Japan! Could someone please help me out with language basics? Where is the best place online to find a translator or list for common courtesy phrases (hello, good bye, thank you, please, etc.)? Also, does anyone know if Saturday is considered a working day for public offices? I'm going on Friday, and I'm worried that I won't get there in time to process my visa in one day. The Korean consulate will have my passport, so I won't be able to leave until I get it back!!! Finally, what is the best way to get around Fukuoka: bus, subway or cab? And what were some of your favorite things to see? Hope someone can help! Cheers, Amanda
