On my second day in Fukuoka I spent my time visiting some more architectural marvels.

There was Canal City. a shopping mall and hotel complex modelled on the sandstone canyons of the american west.

and then on to Acros

and then out to a man-made island with a remarkable structure named "Grin Grin"

Of course I visited shrines and temples, including the first Zen temple in Japan

several shopping malls....

and did a little research on winter fashions in Japan...

You could of course view the whole slideshow of 422 photos
