Google Bookmarks
Looking to introduce the charming appeal of the Chikugo and Asakura areas (Fukuoka Prefecture), the "Chikugo Area Tourist Information" website has put together three new sightseeing routes that tourists can enjoy across two days and one night. In this installment we took a closer look at four locations highlighted in the model tourist courses, which have been aimed at international visitors to Japan. Taiwanese student Setsu is our reporter and will be telling us a little bit more about some of the most absorbing local attractions! The website introduces the routes in English, Korean, and Traditional Chinese , so be sure to check it out along with our report!

1. "Moriyama Kasuri Kobo (森山絣工房)," a workshop creating Kurume Kasuri that has more than 200 years of history!
