Karatsu (pop.120,000) is a city in Saga Prefecture on the island of Kyushu, Japan. The port is a quiet port facing the Genkai Sea that flows into the Sea of Japan, and historically has flourished as a trading hub with the China and Korea. The eastern part of the port forms a section of the Genkai Quasi-National Park, that also is the site of Niji-no-matsubara pine grove and Karatsu Castle. Five kilometres SE of the port is The Black Pine Forest of 1 Million Trees, one of Japan's top three pine groves, alongside a five kilometre white sand beach.

The white Karatsu Castle (1608) lies nearby the eastern end of the port, rising ‘out of the sea’. The tower and other parts of the castle were reconstructed in 1966 to boost local tourism and to function as a local museum. Mount Kagamiyama is a 284 m, flat-topped mountain just outside of central Karatsu. Drive there up the zig-zag road. Around the summit there is a large park with seasonal flowers and shops selling Karatsu-yaki ceramics. Karatsu is famous for its Karatsu Kunchi festival in 2-4 November, with floats, food, beer and sochu. See 14 of the floats in the Karatsu Hikiyama Exhibition Hall. In town there’s a 1270 m shopping arcade that specialises in souvenirs and local pottery.

There’s a Nanatsugama Sightseeing Cruise to a series of natural sea caves. At Yobuko 8 km NW of the port dine on seafood delicacies including live squid. Here is one of the top morning markets in Japan, along a 200 m street. From Yobuko buses run to the Nagoya Castle Ruins.
