Some Friendly Japanese Folk

I thought I would do a write up on the places I’m going to visit in a little more depth .,,

My first destination is going to Fukuoka, which is on the south west island of Japan, Kyushu (九州)..

I guess the first thing that comes to mind when mentioning Fukuoka for me is…. Hakata Ramen.. haha 😛

Apart from Hakata Ramen I’m sure there alot more to Fukuoka. Like sights and activities to do.

I’m staying in Tenjin,
