we arrived in the morning at Fukuoka!
before driving to Yu fuin ( where we are staying for the next few nights in a ryokan) , we made a pit stop to dazaifu, another small town along the way to Yu Fuin.
It seems here there are very little foreigners that actually visit here! the crowd we saw were mainly Japanese!
besides walking through all the interesting shops around this area, we also decided to stop for lunch in one of the restaurants
after such a full lunch, we went around and explored the place .. and walked further up and landed ourselves at a shrine/temple
walking on, there was a street performer with his monkey performing some tricks
after watching the show, we proceeded on back to the car to make our way to yu fuin before it gets dark .. and on the way back to the car, i saw this!!
while taking turns to drive, my parents who have been here before said we should make stop at one of the neighbouring village and we found :
that was really good!
then.. after a few hours more drive, we finally reached our ryokan! its called なか屋.(na ka ya)
Following this, after settling into our rooms, we prepared for dinner ..
