  • Takatori Italian favorite called Hizen coal magnate, kishima coal mine, owned by former House is. Many attractions, such as wall and screen paintings and transoms, most will have abilities. Is worth a look. 廻reba in the hikiyama Exhibition Hall, also located near Oshima Island House Karatsu tourism is going to become rich.

  • Went no preliminary knowledge is guided by volunteer guides for the Meiji-Taisho era architecture and aesthetic delicacy enjoyed. Very much enjoyed. I was surprised to say until the fiscal period lived in this building. 510 Yen entrance fee to visit Karatsu guided, enjoy it, so if you also would like to go in a different season. Recommended to bring your socks was visited for the holidays so lost sensation in the toes cold anyway so cool, so go in the winter time.

  • Japan beauty, luxury, mansion filled with unique. Female guide who's also nice, attention, eyes became heated while listening to the episode. US 33-year-old is the younger generation of Japan is a must, work, family, friends, every thing should be tips. Is written than other guides, I voluntarily takatori's nominees have affection, passion. It is good as it is going from Vista to. Near the Nakazato taro right Mamoru gate pottery, this is should be stopped.

  • It is a place to surprise luxury homes. Great also say he lived 20 years ago. Noh, transom and other various Japanese and feel good. (No cooling is nothing), so I just went to the summer so hot is hot place to go with a guide, there was about a 30-minute, heat stroke can be. Longer, I wanted to see, but was physically impossible. I recommend going during the cooler seasons do.

  • Takatori I liked (did take this good) and read. Was born as a samurai of the saga clan 3 man during the Edo period, the adoption in the troublesome takatori last. Go to Keio University, working as a mining engineer of the Takashima coal mine after graduating from a famous warship island in Nagasaki during the Meiji period. And then acquired and kishima saga kishima district coal mine, on the wave of energy turning point of Japan. Kishima Colliery was bought the Sumitomo Zaibatsu. Takatori building of great wealth, in the land of the Karatsu here mansion, died here.

Where to stay in Karatsu

Many of the accommodations in Karatsu form an orderly line next to the Matsuura River, or along the coast. Things certainly get a little more luxurious by the sea, with rooms offering extensive views along the coast, onsite spas, and fine-dining restaurants, as well as good access to the beach. Look inland towards the main train station for a range of business hotels designed for one-night stays, side-street guesthouses, and the odd hostel.
