A bustling port town noted as the site of two major battles in Japan's history, Shimonoseki also attracts gourmands as the world capital of the potentially poisonous pufferfish, or fugu--prepared only by licensed chefs and considered a delicacy.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Kamado Shrine and Fukiji Temple. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Kumano Magaibutsu and Sumiyoshi Shrine. Explore Shimonoseki's surroundings by going to Hagi (Tokoji Temple, Birth Place of Shoin Yoshida, &more), Kirara Beach Yakeno (in Sanyo Onoda) and Ube (Ube Coastal Road & Tokiwa Park). There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Oita Prefectural Museum of History, steep yourself in history at Ao Cave Tonnel, get to know the fascinating history of Jokamachi Chofu, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rurikoji Temple.

For reviews, other places to visit, maps, and tourist information, read Shimonoseki trip itinerary planning website.

If you are flying in from Philippines, the closest major aiports are Fukuoka Airport, Hiroshima Airport and Kagoshima Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to °C, and evening lows to °C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 28th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
