We swapped islands today – from Hokkaido to Kyushu, but not before taking the scenic route to the airport via the town of Mikasa, Lake Katsurazawa and a very large dam created from the Pankemoyuparo River. It was quite a chilly morning as you can see from the third photograph below.
After a two and a half hour flight from Sapporo this afternoon, we are in Fukuoka having successfully paid for our accommodation by inserting our room key followed by a credit card. The airport is within the city boundaries and the subway ride to our hotel was only 3 stops.
There is laundry on the go before we head out for tonight’s meal. Tomorrow is a full day exploring what Fukuoka has to offer.
