I've come to Hakata to catch the ferry to Busan, South Korea. I figured I'd chill in the hostel and then head out tomorrow so I came with no real plans. Fortunately I was invited out for street side dinner. Not one to shy away, I try it all. First a mix of fried tofu, white radish, egg, a tofu rice ball and a tofu pancake. Neither item really having much taste but the texture of the tofu not the most appealing. Then there was ...

The club lounge at the hotel proved to be a sad joke, as was the lacking service.
Still, we're in the 3rd biggest suite in the hotel, for free (points).

... more and give them a quick glance as I strode by.
Walked to the Fukuoka Castle Ruins and Ohori park as well. Quite a long hike but passed through the main central area (Tenjin) on the way so "saw the town". Not so amazing although the Canal Shopping Arcade was OK (next to the Tenjin area). It was built in the mid 1990's and is a bit futuristic even now. Has an impressive fountain too. Like all the other malls and arcades there ...
