    Trip to explore during the visit to the shrine in passing, this is the same. Even on a weekday and had a respectable large Torii, but, most people are not. Travel safely I hope.

    My girlfriend and I visited because of Yuri on Ice and checked out some additional sights while in town. We were surprised to find that the shrine not only had various ceremonial instructions in English, but translated charms and fortunes, too!

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.
