Main Street Dazaifu
intersections in most cities have traffic lights
The walk itself is scenic and at the end of it there is an old Japanese garden and pond and a huge Shinto shrine. The shine, called Tenman-gu was huge.
this shot does not do it justice
After the walk we hopped on the train back to Hakata and made our way out to Tenjin, the downtown core of Fukuoka, to meet a woman I met through couchsurfing.org named Jun ko Nagashima. She was amazing, taking us to a great noodle house and then the fireworks festival at Ohori Park. Watching fireworks while sitting on castle ruins surrounded by Japanese in traditional clothing (they actually wear kimono's a lot) was an amazing experience. We had hoped to meet again on Saturday but my Korean phone does not work in Japan and Fukuoka wifi is almost non-existent with the result that we couldn't co-ordinate a time . I hope we can meet up again in Japan or Korea though.
After that we walked around Tenjin, seeing the sights and gawking at some of the stranger sides of Japanese fashion, but by then we were tired and the subway was right there so we opted for hostel and bed.
