In many previous articles, we have talked about major cities in Japan like Tokyo. Different from other topics, today we are going to talk about small city in Fukuoka prefecture, Kitakyushu. This small city is famous for abundant tour spots such as wisteria garden and Kokura castle. If you are traveling to Fukuoka city, it is very easy to visit Kokura as well since it takes only about 15 minutes from Hakata station to Kokura station by Shinkansen Bullet Train. In this article, we will explore what to enjoy and eat in Kitakyushu.

Calm down. There is nothing burning in this picture. As I mentioned in my previous article, Beppu, which is located in Oita, is famous for hot spring. Having hot spring in a town naturally means there exists a source which makes hot water. This hot water makes a steam all over this town and that’s why now we can see a picture like this. In this article, we will look for famous hot spring that many tourists visit every year.

There are 7 hell hot springs only in Beppu. If you wish to look around all 7 hells the entrance fee becomes JPY 2,000 per person. It costs JPY 400 if you visit only one hell. The most famous hell is the one called ‘Kamado’ and some tourists who do not have enough time to spend in Beppu choose to visit Kamado only.
About two hours away from downtown Fukuoka by bus, you can step into a small village, Beppu, which is famous as onsen(Japanese hotsprings) village. It is also good idea to rent a car and drive along countryside of Fukuoka. I bet you will be able to see a lot of greens such as mountains and trees. If you’d like to choose calm and peaceful atmosphere to release your stress rather than enjoying city and nightlife, I highly recommend visiting Beppu.
Beppu is definitely not a big city; however, it has everything you will need to make your travel more abundant and romantic. In particular, Beppu is a perfect place for people who love to warm their bodies in hotspring. If you imagine Beppu just as a place where does not have any single thing but only hot spring, you are taking it wrong. Though it is not very huge, Beppu provides tourists and its local people enough attractions such as shopping malls and dining spots.

Fukuoka is usually considered to be a Ramen city to local Japanese people. Everywhere in Japan you will have a chance to find ramen shops but each region has its own characteristics. However, it doesn’t mean that you can try only Fukuoka style ramen if you are traveling to Fukuoka area. For example, there are a lot of Hokkaido style ramen shops in Tokyo and vice versa.
Noodles in ramen are usually thin in Fukuoka. There are tons of ramen shops in Fukuoka city including mobile food stalls on the street. The cost totally depends on where you are going to visit; however, at the same time it is actually true that you can have very cheap ramen in Fukuoka. If you are a ramen-lover, I recommend visiting several ramen shops in Fukuoka and find which one is the best for you. In this article, we will look for some ramen shops(restaurants) in Fukuoka.
A lot of portable wifi router companies advertise that you can enjoy unlimited data during your stay in Japan. wifi-rental-japan also introduces to customers that you can use unlimited data with our wifi router. However, there is a rule of using unlimited data and same thing applies to most of the wifi routers in Japan.
CHECK AREA MAP
wifi-rental-japan provides Y mobile 305ZT to our customers. Although this router is popular in Japan and many wifi rental stores handle it, it is impossible to cover every single area in Japan. For instance, if you hike up mountain and try to connect to the internet with wifi router, it will not work at all. In similar cases, it will not work as well if you are traveling countryside of Japan. Please refer to the following map.
Advantages of Using Wifi Rental Japan
(1) You can connect maximum 14 devices to one wifi router.
If your device has wifi function, you can easily use it. Smartphones, laptops, ipads… whatever you have! If you are not traveling alone, you can share one device with your families or friends. However, connecting up to 4~5 devices is recommended to guarantee high-speed internet connection.
Did you already come to Japan and now you feel like you need a wifi router for your travel? Renting wifi routers at airport is very expensive and sometimes it is not unlimited. Don’t worry. If you are visiting Tokyo, many of you will definitely come to Shinjuku for sightseeing. wifi rental japan is located near Shinjuku station and walk in customers are always welcome.
In our first article, we have introduced several places where you can use wifi for free. Many of the tourists who have visited Japan recently keep saying that Japan is experiencing the lack of Free Wireless Hotspots. Places such as airports, hotels, and some cafes provide free wifi to their passengers or customers for sure. However, it is not possible for you to stay at those places during whole your trip. You need to go outside and walk around every nook and corner in Japan because that’s one of the charms of traveling unknown places.
Have you ever heard that it’s almost impossible to get online in Japan only with free wireless(wifi) hotspots? Japan, as one of the most developed countries in the world, has always been surprising the world by its outstanding achievements in technologies. However, stores and restaurants in Japan are not really generous about providing free wifi zones to their customers and sadly it’s true.

If you are a smartphone user(I guess most of you are ,though.), you will find yourself get lost without connecting to the internet, especially when you are not in familiar situation. Imagine that you cannot search how to get to hotel because you are not connected to the internet. You cannot find any free wifi hotspots around you. Everything is written in Japanese letters you have never seen in your life except for some movies and animations. What would you do?
