​The corona pandemic brought me time to get to know my home, Fukuoka.

There are so many municipalities I have not yet visited.

But what I can say is that each town or city has its own unique ”flavor". For example, "Yame City”. Yame City is one of the most famous tea growing regions in Japan, with beautiful tea fields. There is no one in Japan who does not know Yame tea.

On the other side of the tea fields, there is an area with trendy cafes and stores located in the streets of traditional Japanese-style houses, which are very intriguing.

It is a place to walk around with a camera in hand. And, "YANAGAWA". It is known as the VENICE of Japan. The canal that runs through the town shows boatmen rowing a small Japanese boat with tourists on board.

The other day I heard the boatman singing like an opera singer.

I couldn't help but stop and listen to the boatman's singing.

The scenery is so different from that of other towns that it is easy to forget that Yanagawa is in Fukuoka.

There are so many more of the charms of 60 municipalities that have yet to be discovered.

KBC, a group company, is currently working on a project to introduce the 60 cities, towns, and villages on TV and radio.

And together with KBC, the journey to discover the charms of the 60 municipalities will continue.
