Between Christmas and New Year I took a quick trip down to Fukuoka, the largest city on Kyushu, a place that rightfully has gotten a reputation for its architecture.
I arrived at the trains station at noon and headed first for the Momichi area, built on reclaimed land.
My first stop was the Fukuoka Tower, but on the way I passed through a museum and a library
I went up the tower and then passed through a kind of HiTech area of technology companies , many with cool architecture.
Next was the amazing JAL Seahawk hotel
and next to it Yahoo Dome.
Nearby was Hawks Town, a shopping Mall.
Then it was over to the original Fukuoka Tower in Bayside.
A look around at some more interesting architecture
Then a walk along the river to my hotel
