    Staying at Karatsu, 210 yen on the island near the cross with tried to go by. Leave your car at the parking lot in front of Karatsu Castle and walk down the pier at the foot stand. In the station parking lot. Not everyone in the waiting room of the station. When I went and return ship waiting for residents of Takashima, parking and gently tell us. Boat man island by 5 minutes. Secures much inland to Takashima, so deck seat, across the Sea seems to be good it was. There are signs and arrows look on the small island and get not only shrine. This small shrine had lots of tourists, are equipped with toilets. Pulled a fortune in sea bream (for Fishhook), very cute. I took a water taxi (500 yen per person), but just good ship back.

    13 o'clock arrived at the parking lot of Karatsu Castle. Sea taxi driver's discovery and wait for 10 minutes to reply. Why? You do not want to sail if you wait while I differ from research and thank you very much, we three are in I'm running here and there. Like I was wondering, what has been frustrating, so changing to a liner past 14:00 employee travel bus arrival. The driver's quick voice acted together, groups price would. Groups? Why??? While I understand better, and become compliant. Corporate travel is the party and the tour was good-very friendly people who arrived on the island and Lady cats came. Ignore questions that speak to mingle once. My separation as an individual cat. No interest at all. Wandering into the shop next to the clerk tourist guide map of the island store even from I heard described. At that time, the store cat, Lady Rage seems to be "If you bought in that I have!" screamed at. I heard from my friends. Don't pull. A major turn-off. And too greedy. Employee travel is one way not to purchase, proceed to us. Treasure our Shrine. Unable to pay a visit to the Deus Ex Machina like I wanted to go. Buy a scratch lottery ticket booth at the end. Employee travel party outside was all wrong. So think of me said I'm sure God Lottery winning 夢mizu, honest work and save money.

    Frankly I attach lottery shrine is stiff in beckoning to the edge of the lovely 😻 mat. When fewer people is a payment self-reported amulet or talisman. It is quite peaceful and famous tourist destinations.

    Hit the lottery and the power spot shrine. At first, buying dubious amulet and returning scratch 1st get 😲 after one year of ❕ saved those who believe exactly what it is.

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.
