Trip To Kyushu 1

Trip To Kyushu 1 just to let you know the trip to kyushu post is kinda long and cover most of the funny things that i found in the land of the rising sun^^ Japan.

Well to those who dunno what or where is Kyushu here is a quote from Wikipedia:

Kyūshū (九州 Nine Provinces?)[2] or Kyushu is the third largest island of Japan and most southwesterly of its four main islands. Its alternate ancient names include Kyūkoku (九国 Nine States), Chinzei (鎮西 West of the Pacified Area), and Tsukushi-no-shima (筑紫島 Island of Tsukushi). The historical regional name Saikaidō (西海道 West Sea Circuit) referred to Kyūshū and its surrounding islands.

Kyūshū has a population of 13,231,995 (2006) and covers 35,640 square kilometres (13,760 sq mi).

This was me at Singapore Changi ariport^^ getting some healthy food to counter the super healthy one on the plane. The burger taste very good^^

Christmas was just around the corner ^^

Was about the leave changi airport so i went to the toilet and it seems that they have a fly stuck on this… to make you feel curious and aim your pee at it to try to wash it off ^^;… !!

This was 6 hours later ^^  Took Silk air from Malaysia to Singapore and transit at changi and spend 6 hours ++ on Singapore airlines ^^

Singapore airline is one of the ailines with the best flight experience for me.. do recommend taking it if you dont mind transiting at changi. ( Changi air port is not you average airport you can actually sample nice food before your flight !! 3 cheers from Rost pork!!)

The plane that me and my family took very nice indeed..

Landed on Fukuoka airport first impression of japan… NEAT!!

Fukuoka is the capital city for Kyushu^^ and is Famous for its Eco-friendly feature mixing in with the huge metropolitan style^^ very nice to live in ^^

another quote here^^ from wikipedia.

Fukuoka (福岡市 Fukuoka-shi?) is the capital city of Fukuoka Prefecture and is situated on the northern shore of the island of Kyūshū in Japan.

Voted number 16 in 2009’s poll of the World’s Most Livable Cities, Fukuoka is praised for its green spaces in a metropolitan setting.[citation needed] It is the most populous city in Kyūshū, followed by Kitakyūshū. It is the largest city and metropolitan area west of Osaka. The city was designated on April 1, 1972 by government ordinance. Greater Fukuoka (福岡都市圏) with 2.5 million people (2005 Census), is part of the heavily industrialized Fukuoka-Kitakyūshū zone, as well as Northern Kyushu.

This may look like i will have a lot of time shopping but actually i don’t spend most of my time staying at the mountains since this was a onsen trip and not a shopping trip very sad about not being able to raid a store but the sadness melts away during the trip ^^ Onsen Banzai!!… ahhh~ (-_-”’)

Sign of snow ^^ we travel around kyushu by bus so good scenery but tiresome near the end >.<

I should let the pictures do the talking ^^ !! Bamboo Blade action in Kyushu?

Plum soft ice ^^ Plum or Ume is a spciality in FuKuoka ^^

Stone animal for preserving not for eating.

Tour guide was in the picture.. guess who is it?

Pigeons on the rock>.< stood there for a few minutes to get the shot i wan … my skills are not that good yet.

The kid with the samurai sword was very cute ^^ this was taken when we are about to enter the Jinja or temple ^^

The second panel translates into “Flying Plum” ^^

You can see this in most shrines in japan before you enter ^^ use the bamboo spoon to take some water and wash your hands then take a sip to rinse your mouth.

Was use to drinking the water but the real thing is they spit it out into the drain at the bottom of this thing.. half of our group drank it… and was very happy ^^

Very clean^^

Typical Shrine Equipments Bad lottery goes here ^^

Wishes on pieces of wood goes here ^^

Miko! Miko! Miko! .. they are everywhere.. Miko from wikipedia ^^

Miko (巫女?, literally “shaman woman”) is a Japanese term that anciently meant a “female shaman, spirit medium” who conveyed oracles from kami (“spirits; gods”), and presently means a “shrine maiden; virgin consecrated to a deity” who serves at Shinto shrines.

This shrine was in front of a plum garden very neat^^

Toilet in the middle of nowhere.. O.o?

Bento for lunch sorry for the bad pictures.. my skill are bad..

This was very nice though not recommended for people who don’t like sweet things.. Rice cake with Plum flavoured red bead paste ^^ YUM!
