What We Love:

Cruise down the famous Yanagawa river on a traditional gondola-like 'donko' boat as you take in the Japanese architecture, early 20th century warehouses and seasonal flowers. The tranquil and slow paced ride makes it a great way to enjoy viewing Fukuoka's cherry blossoms in the midst of nature. Continue the day with a special tea tasting session at the oldest tea wholesaler in the Kyushu region, where you will enjoy a traditional 'Hoiro Baisen' Yame tea which is prepared by drying the leaves on Japanese paper and spreading them over charcoal fire.
