The other day I went to Hakata Yokamon Hiroba.
It is located on 11th floor of the Fukuoka prefectural government bulding.
They introduce traditional crafts in Fukuoka.
That time Omuta city was featured.
That city is the birth place of Karuta which means card games.
A cafe is there and the place has a good view.
I think it is still pretty unknown.
Now these cute purple flowers are blooming outside my house on the shore in Fukuoka Japan.
Their name is Hamago (Vitex rotundifolia).
I think the leaves are cute, too.
Hakata Gion Yamakasa festival time came again this year.
Though I also posted about this last year.
It will be held from July 1st to 15th in Fukuoka.
This year is the first time since it was registered as a Unesco Intangible Cultural Heritage.
It has continued for 776 years.
14 decorated Yamakasa are located at different places in Fukuoka city.
This one is in front of Hakata station.
Every Yamagasa has a front and back side.
And on July 15th the mobile Yamakasa move around Hakata.
The day before yesterday, I went to Uminonakamichi park in Fukuoka Japan.
Again this year nemophila fowers were beautifully in bloom.
And I could see many colorful tulips.
Spring is here in Japan.
Today I went to see cherry blossoms at Ikeda river in Fukuoka.
Of course I had to go to see them. lol
It was beautiful, but I wished it was more sunny.
Today I felt like eating a healthy lunch.
So I went to “Kozainomori” restaurant.
It is located in Itoshima in Fukuoka, about 10 minutes from Chikuzenmaebaru JR station.
The building was made in 1901 by a wealthy merchant of the Nishihara family.
They use fresh vegetables in Itoshima.
By the way, also I tried to go to see cherry blossoms, but they were not yet blooming.
This year (2017) cherry blossoms are late to bloom.
The other day I ate ramen at ramen studium in Canal city Fukuoka.
The shop named Daichi that I ate at was Sapporo ramen from Hokkaido.
I think Miso ramen is famous there.
My husband ate that.
I ate soy sauce flavored ramen.
It was good.
