Welcome sign at the airport: Fukuoka is on the northern shore of the island of Kyushu in Japan.

Fully packed at the airport

fetching train reservations after arrival

We used the Shinkansen ("bullet train") quite a lot, here for the trip to Kokura

Its as convenient as it looks.

Stop sign near to a school, so colourful I had to take a picture again.

The 'Fuzuoka elementary school' we visited 2 years ago

The first afternoon we had no planned events, so time to walk through Kokura

Quite warm

turles in front of a pet shop

Motorbike shop

I like the combination of traditional and modern things

I did see this also at my last trip to Kokura - but this time learned that it houses a shopping mall

Inside the shopping mall

Anime fans

Front of the Taito station, those have all kinds of arcade games available

Trying out some games

Finally I was able to play this Taiko game again. A song is played, you have to hit the right place of the Taiko with the sticks.
