A Fukuoka Summer at Keya Beach

Fukuoka's top summer resort

By Tristan Scholze    - 1 min read

Fukuoka’s Itoshima Peninsula is famed for its beaches, cafés, and artsy shops, and Keya is the shining jewel of the beaches. Tucked away in a bay lined with green mountains and huge boulders, the scenery compliments the sandy beaches and clear waters. This gives Keya mass appeal for swimmers, sunbathers, and those looking to kick back and take in the atmosphere. The bay is lined with beach houses hosting volleyball, boat rentals, barbecue huts, and more. Every September, Sunset Live, Fukuoka’s largest outdoor concert event, is held here.

I'm also known as Faer Out. I love learning about people and nature. I've traveled around the world and throughout Japan, and I hope to continue seeing and experiencing the wonder of this planet as long as I live.Based in Japan for nearly two decades, I'm the Regional Partner here for Fukuoka and Saga Prefectures. In addition to my work at JapanTravel, I have a language school called Rainbow Bridges English Academy in Fukuoka and am very interested in teaching, languages, communication, and photography, among other things. Recently, I've been a guest host on NHK World's J-Trip Plan for Caving Adventures in Western Japan as well as Exploration for Black Gold.I love heading downtown to meet up with friends for a night out as well as being able to hop on my motorcycle and be riding through forest-covered mountains or to sandy beaches in 20 minutes. This area is very photogenic and even after years of exploration, there are still plenty of places to discover each weekend! My photographs are available for purchase on iStock, Shutterstock, and Dreamstime or by contacting me.Please contact me if you have any questions about travel in Japan. I'd also be grateful for any follows on social media!
