What you'll do

Shikanoshima Island is a must-do trip when in Fukuoka to explore the abundance of nature, beautiful scenery as well as some historic sites of old shrines and stone monuments.

Nature, history and gastronomy will be part of this amazing trip. We'll visit one of the most amazing shrines, Shikaumi, where I'll show you all the mystic of praying. If there's low tide we can walk across a small island from Katsuma beach, it's really amazing. And I'll take you to a unique place where you'll taste some of Shikonishima's gastronomic treasures ("wakame" and "sazae") . Finally, if you want, we can end having a relaxing tea at my tea shop.

I'm a super host at Airbnb and I'm resident at Shikanoshima Island. One of the reasons my guests love me is because (almost) no one knows the hidden gems that the island hides as I do and this is why during the last years I've been guiding more than 100 guests to the unique sights of Shikanoshima island.

So glad we got to do this tour on our last day in the Fukuoka area! Aki was a very sweet person who shared her love of the idyllic Shikanoshima area with us. The island was beautiful, and we very much enjoyed sharing tea and stories with Aki and Kana at their home near the end of the experience. They’re wonderful people. Thanks for making us feel welcome!

Aki was a very friendly host and we really, really enjoyed the experience. We particularly enjoyed the tour to Shikaumi Shrine and visiting Aki’s tea house. We had fun playing with Aki and Kana’s cats too. Overall we had a truly wonderful experience.

아키는 인간적이고 따뜻하고 저의 모든 질문에 잘 대답해주려 노력하는 좋은 사람입니다. 무엇보다 좋았던 것은 (섬까지는 찾아가기 어렵고 시간이 조금 걸렸지만) 만난 이후에 차로 함께 코스를 돌았던 것입니다. 비수기라 혼자 가게 되어, 특별히 일본 시골?섬 가정집에 초대받은 가족이 된 기분이었습니다. 시간이 빨리 가서 바다를 걷지는 못했지만 전통적인 설명과 함께 제대로 신사를 경험할 수 있었습니다. 신사에서 운세를 하나하나 읽어주며 재미있는 시간을 보내었고, 작은 섬이라 그 곳만의 특별한 것들을 보고 느낄 수 있는 아주 특별하고 소중한 시간이었습니다

Such a wonderful day with Aki-san and Kana-san exploring in depth the islands little treasures. Not only did I get an extremely unique and intimate view of Japanese life here and history here I left feeling like I made a real nice connection with new friends. Having tea at the end of the tour at their house watching their kids come home from school really gave you a glimpse into their daily life which was truly an authentic experience. Arigatougozaimasu!

We had a wonderful experience with Aki and Kana. Aki is very knowledgeable and will tell you a lot of interesting information about the island as only a local can do. She took us to the shrine, the park and to her favorite udon restaurant. Furthermore we were invited to her and her partner's, Kana, place, where we enjoyed a really nice cup of tea from Ricky's Tea shop. We can totally recommend this AirBnB experience.
