Fukuoka, May 2014

We visited my family in Fukuoka this weekend.

Dazaifu Tenmangu

We really enjoyed the nice weather in Dazaifu.

Ramen, thatched roof restaurant, and Itoshima

We had a Mother’s Day lunch with Grandma & Mom at a restaurant in the woods. My aunt took us all over the place from the east side to the west side of the city.

    That’s really beautiful! Shame it’s so far away from Tokyo, how long would it take on the Shinkansen?

      It takes about 5.5-6.5 hours from Tokyo to Fukuoka (Hakata Station) but if you visit another area in between and spend a few days there, it’s not too bad of a trip. I used to go from Tokyo to Fukuoka, stopping at Kyoto or Osaka on my way.

        Awesome! I thought it was a much longer trip than that. Oh, don’t think I’ve told you this: we’re going back this year! 😀
