I’ve never written one of these on the blog before, but I had the idea to make this Fukuoka Sample Itinerary because I wasn’t able to complete my travel series when I first posted about it last September. It would be really strange if I suddenly wrote about going to Nagasaki on a day-trip without context.
Fukuoka Spring 2018: A lovely trek to Atago Shrine
I’ve always been fascinated with the Shinto shrines in Japan mostly because Shintoism itself is a fascinating thing. I feel like it has and continues to play such a big part in molding the disciplined society of Japan. I often sense that it is because of this belief that the Japanese have this deeper understanding of the importance of respecting all the things around them, whether they be inanimate objects or people.
