Located in Saga Prefecture, Arita (有田) is a town known for their porcelain – Arita Yaki. With only half a day in Arita, we visited the Kyushu Ceramic Museum and ate lunch at the nearby cafe. Liked many towns in Japan, there is a local food “experience” in Arita called the Arita Yaki Gozen. Here’s what this special meal looks like.
In April, I took my parent-in-law and my aunts to Kyushu, Japan for a family trip. During our 12-day, self-guided tour around the northern areas of Kyushu we have:
- set foot in over 13 cities,
- rode on a mini cruise,
- visited local markets,
- soaked in hot springs,
- sat in a designer train, and
- ate lots of delicious Japanese food.
What’s the best part of the trip? Well, I loved everything! But if we must choose, here are the top 6 things to do in Northern Kyushu based on our experience.
