Travel Blogs from Fukuoka
... at least for me, completely off the map. Tokyo and Hiroshima would have been extraordinary to look upon, I'm sure, but their stories have been recorded again and again. To have something different, something that isn't on the pages just yet, is most definitely something worth exploring further. It's a pain to get lost, but it feels like I found a treasure that can't be bought anywhere else.
Oh, and the statues. Make that two treasures.
Konichiwa from Fukuoka!
This weekend Jord and I came to Fukuoka to meet our friend Anna who is teaching english here and boy did we have a good time! After meeting up with Anna we headed to her friend Joel's house who graciously let us stay at his place last night and took us out around Fukuoka! Joel is a great guy from England who has been teaching English here for a few years and has a great cat named Gyro. After grabbing a great lunch of rice, beef and salad ...

They only provided drinks, with no food, but it was almost dinner time, so didn't really matter. They said there was over 1100 Crown & Anchor members on this cruise. The guy with the highest amount was only 29 and had over 600 days. He lived in Las Vegas and didn't work. Must have rich parents. ...
For our 3rd day in the cruise, we went down to Fukuoka, Japan as a stopover. It's just a province in Japan but I can see how beautiful and clean the city is. We got to try the some authentic Japanese food. And I must say, it's really good.
We only got to go down for a few hours, but will definitely go back to this place SOON! And hopefully in the city.
