  • This shrine now became quite famous. Decided to go, it's not firing. In one corner of the ship is located 10 minutes from the Pier near the Castle, Takashima island; It is a small shrine.

  • You win the lottery? It seems this island. And from the Karatsu Castle 2 km long, so okay, let's go. But not from time disagree. One day only five not out, but I do go and return matches. With limited water taxi leaves at any time and possible but the 500 Yen one way (one on the bus one way 1000 yen). This is-and is not well done either do not use taxi. Takashima, arrived. Win lottery lottery ticket booth and gift toy shrine and food and beverage outlets. It was a weekday, so many people who did not. It is enough one-hour course.

  • Liner that Takashima will arrive in about 10 minutes. One way 210 yen. Water taxi is ¥ 500. From riding the shrine visit and will come back in 1 hour playing cat and the tawamuretari, or buy lottery tickets. Petit tour while blowing in the Breeze or winning the lottery I don't know, but fun (o ^ ^ o) arrival and departure times of the liner well look to go see it.

  • 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.

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.
