虹の松原(Niji No Matsubara)
Niji no matsubara, it is the Pine tree street in Karatsu just connecting Fukuoka and Saga.
When you look up the Pine tree is like a rainbow arch, so it is called Matsubara(Pine Tree) of Niji(Rainbow).
It is about 4.5km distance and 100000 Pine Trees there.
This is also a beach spot which you will be able to enjoy surfing as well.
The beach called Hamasaki beach.
There are some hotels if you would like to escape from the city and a very convenient location as it is only about an hour drive from the center of Fukuoka.
Karatsu Seaside Hotel(唐津シーサイドホテル)
The hotel by the ocean was great!
They have their local food, you must be scared of eating fresh squid. Hhh.
They have Kaiseki cuisine at the hotel which will have about 8 courses.
Starting from appetiser, and squid sashimi then the left squid feet will be either tempura or grilled and we have ordered tempura(deep fried) style.
I like how they serve like above, so tiny beautiful decorating.
Then the last but not least,
was so tender and tasty.
They also had rooftop spa which is infinity one.
There was lobby on 2nd floor with some hot stone spa.
Hot Stone Spa(岩盤浴)
You may enjoy hotel and spa feeling escape from the center of Fukuoka.
The nearest station is Higashi Karatsu Station(東唐津駅), they may pick you up from there as well!
