Fall in love with Tangjin City, just a glimpse of Dangjin City is in the prefecture of the Tangshan River in the mouth of the Songpu River estuary, Mando Mountain, is a typical Pingshan City. Dangjin City is the castle of Toyotomi Hideyoshi, the castle that was built in the 7th year of the 7th year of the Qing Dynasty (1602). It is said that when the city was built, the disintegration material of Nagoya Castle was used, and the beach where the city is a fortress looks like a crane that spreads its wings, so it is also called "Dancing City". The city masters went through the temples, Okubo, Songping, Doi, Mizuno, and Ogasawara. In the 10th year of Meiji, the remains of the city became Maizuru Park. The Tianshoutai site in the current city pool is in the style of Qingchang, and was completed as a cultural sightseeing facility in October of the Showa era. The first to fourth floors are places for visiting Tangjin, Tangjin, and experience exchanges. The fifth floor is the most attractive viewing place. As one of the few cities in Japan built on the bay, you can see the beauty of Karatsu here, and the chic scenery on the bay always makes people feel comfortable. Staying on the railing is my state at the time. Small cars, small houses, always feel good in Japan. Not only can you enjoy the sea view, but you can also look at the city and fall in love with Tangjin City. When you go in May, there are beautiful wisteria in the city. Of course, it will be even better when the cherry blossoms are here! Tickets: General 500 yen, 250 yen/hh for elementary and junior high school students. If you have 20 or more people, you can buy a group ticket, usually 400 yen for one person and 200 yen for elementary and middle school students. Address: 8-1 in Sakae-shi, Tsutsumi-shi Ekimae Transportation: JR Karatsu Station Showa Bus 160 yen bus route 20 minutes, bus stop: get off at the Karatsu city entrance , 7 minutes on foot. Opening time: 9:00 - 17:00

In the Jingshan Observatory, overlooking the "Hongzhisongyuan" Legend Jingshan is the place where the Princess used to send away the big partner Yanshouyan to leave by boat. Later, according to the legend that she tried to wave the scarf, she also called Jingshan. It is "the scarf of the mountain." There is also a saying that the hard-to-find suffering from the use of Ji Yilu chased the battleship and arrived at the call, but the sea in front blocked her way. She cried for seven days and seven nights in Gai Island. Turning into a stone statue, it seems to be looking for your own lover. Therefore, her story is called "one of the three major tragedies in Japan" and is a very beautiful love story. From the foot of the mountain, take the Panshan Highway for more than ten minutes to get to the parking lot above, then just take a short walk from the parking lot to the Observatory. Hongsong Matsubara is located along the shore of Karatsu Bay in Karatsu City. It is a scenic spot with 5km of pine trees growing on the beach. The scenery of the pine forest on the beach has been loved by the Japanese since ancient times. The Matsuo Matsubara and the Sanbao Matsubara of Shizuoka Prefecture and the gas of Fukui Prefecture are one of the top three Matsubara in Japan. Hongzhisong Originally in the early 17th century, the Tang Jinzhao planted black pine to prevent windstorms and was carefully protected from then on. It is now designated as a special country, protected and managed, and logging is prohibited. The blue-and-white sea and the black pine woven landscape on the silver-white beach are very beautiful. Due to the proximity to the beach, there are many sea bathing tourists in the summer. Standing on this observatory, you can see the silver-white beach, the blue sea and the black pine intertwined, very magnificent! Tickets: Free Reference: half an hour

Take the squid pill and explore the mystery and spectacle of the Seven Kettles. The Hohhot Port of Japan's Saga-Tangjin City is next to the city of Hozicha, which I mentioned, from here you can go to the Seven Caves. There are two options for sea trips here.

Japan's niche attractions, delicious and fun, the shoguns to the city Huzi Chao City began in the Taisho era 90 years ago. The distance between the Huzi and the sea is very close to the waters of the Xuanjie Beach, which is rich in fish farms. At the port, various kinds of fish and shellfish such as squid are sold.

From Hakata Station, take the subway airport line, you don't have to get off the bus, you can get to the seaside town of Tangjin all the way. This route will run out of the ground floor of Fukuoka and become part of Kyushu JR. This cross-system connection is very magical to me. It is difficult to achieve without fine planning and calculations. On the way, the train passes by the river, passing by the sea, and there are large cherry blossoms. The camera has been tightly held in the hand, trying to capture a picture of the tree in front of you, but it is difficult! Dangjin is surrounded by mountains on three sides, facing the sea and facing the scenic Xuanhai National Park in the north. A few European and American tourists in the same car are also the same destination, Tangjin City. Dangjin City is at the seaside. The city is very high. If you face the train on the north, you will see the Tangjin City Tianshou Pavilion at the commanding heights of the city before entering the station. The small town on the beach is very good. Under the blue sky, it is a white dance crane city. In front of the city, it is a powdered cherry blossom. Daykeeper has two platforms, each of which has a cherry tree. The full time is nearing the end, the sea breeze blows, and the cherry blossom petals, like snowflakes, fall. Paired with red lanterns and the back of the Sea of Japan, the colors are extremely beautiful.

The sights of Japan are just a look. The palace is not a deep palace. The temple is not a winding path. Jingshan was only a car that had been sitting for a long time, so many people did not go to Guanyin Temple. The observatory here looks at the endless sea, and the wide coastline below the mirror mountain makes people's eyes wide open. Going back to the Du Fu Garden, it is also a beautiful garden scenery. Besides, it is a small Jingshan Shrine. The last thing worth remembering is this mirrored mountain covered with green plants.
