    Upon arrival into Japan, we will transfer you to your hotel in Fukuoka City for you to check in for your four night stay. Situated on the northern shore of Kyushu Island, Fukuoka City is a fun-loving, modern and cosmopolitan city and during the tournament, Fukuoka City is the place to be. All of the supporters will be staying in Fukuoka City and travelling into Oita Prefecture on match days. This city has a relaxed vibe with the perfect blend of chic boutiques, laid back bars and glorious cuisine.

  • Day3

    Fukuoka City

    Fukuoka City is thought to be where tea and Buddhism were first introduced into Japan, due to it being close to South Korea and the rest of eastern Asia.

    The city itself is merged from two cities – Hakata and Fukuoka, and what Fukuoka City lacks in historical Japanese culture, it makes up for in it’s contemporary and dynamic modern way of life revealing the essence of Japan as it is today.

    The city’s signature dish is it’s Hakata ramen, a thick noodle and pork broth. It has the second highest number of clubs and bars (after Tokyo Metropolitan) so whilst you are here, you may wish to wander along to Oyafuku Dori - the street brimming with afterhours bars and clubs which will provide the buzz of the vibrant and modern Japan you are looking for. Try a Yanagibashi burger made from fried fishcake at Hakata’s Kitchen which has about 100 years of history.

    If you wish to take a break from the rush of tourism, Ohiri Park provides just that as you admire the peaceful lake, tranquil gardens and castle ruins. The lake was once a part of the sea but was built up to form part of the moat system for Fukuoka’s Castle.

Extras

Nagasaki and Beyond Tour – Full Day - 18th Oct

£295 per person

Depart Fukuoka early this morning with your tour guide for a two-hour journey to Nagasaki. Once in Nagasaki, the first stop is the Atomic Bomb Museum which is a stark reminder of how this port city was devastated by the nuclear bomb in 1945. Afterwards, you make the short journey to the beautifully landscaped Glover Garden. The estate sits perched on a hillside overlooking the valley and the sea. It’s perfectly pruned gardens and colonial style buildings pay homage to Scotsman Thomas Glover and how he brought the Industrial Revolution to Japan. Stop for lunch is included at a local restaurant.

After lunch, you will catch the boat to Hashima Island, known as Gunkanjima, which was once populated by miners and their families working in the undersea coal mines for Mitsubishi. When the coal came to an end, so did its inhabitants and they moved back to mainland Nagasaki. Since 1974, the island has been deserted and what’s left are abandoned buildings. It is eerie and quiet, but captivating and also features in the James Bond movie Sky Fall!

Back on the mainland, the group will head to Deijima, which is a manmade island in the port of Nagasaki. Japan was cut off from the rest of the world up until trade started passing through Nagasaki in the 16th century. Deijima was constructed in 1636 to segregate Portuguese residents from the Japanese population, so a look around the historical buildings will give you a real insight into the past!

Visit includes: return travel, local Japanese tour guide, lunch, tour of Hashima Island, entry into the Atomic Bomb Museum, Glover Garden and Deijima Museum
