Mifuneyama Rakuen (御船山楽園)
"Due to its resemblance in shape to a Chinese boat called a ""karasen"" in Japanese, Mt. Mifune is also called Mt. Karasen. This park is situated on the mountain's western side. The park was created over a three year period as part of a villa for Nabeshima Shigeyoshi, then lord of Takeo Domain. The park is incredibly beautiful in spring when some 2,000 cherry trees and 200 thousand azaleas on the grounds bloom in profusion. The sight of colorful azaleas sprawling like a patchwork quilt under azure sky is stunning, but the scenery created when the park is illuminated at night is also magical and exceptional."

Away from the fast-paced cities of mainland Japan, Kyushu’s Saga prefecture offers quaint towns and cities known for their traditional crafts, particularly ceramics. Rich in kaolin (a type of clay), Saga became the homeland of Arita ware, a delicate, decorative porcelain that is now celebrated worldwide and can be discovered in the towns of Arita, Imari, and Karatsu.
