Southwest of Honshu, Fukuoka is in the northern part of the Kyushu region. In the middle of the prefecture, the Kusaba River runs for a mere 1.5 kilometers in Chikuzen city. Each spring brings a fantastic landscape, a blooming river of pink cherry blossoms and yellow field mustard flowers, flowing alongside the babbling brook.
