Fukuoka: A Late Night Stopover By Bullet Train
Second biggest city on the island of Kyushu and famous for the Hakata Nagahama Ramen which I gave a try at a local ramen shop. Fukuoka was another stopover on my journey to Sasebo to see Huis Ten Bosch.
Upon arriving in Fukuoka I noticed the weather being very cloudy due to the typhoon that is currently raging alongside the Japanese coast which will head land inward near Osaka.
I chose a pricey sushi restaurant near the station to measure the sushi quality in Fukuoka. Unfortunately it reminded me of Toronto sushi and felt ripped off.
With a full belly I went on a browsing trip through the city center. Fukuoka is another beautiful city in Japan with nice shopping streets and cool building designs.
After searching for hours to find a cheap hotel I became desperate and took any room I could find.
The hotel room I got smelled like crap and I felt ripped off again, the hotel's name was ARK Hotel Royal, luckily the bed was comfortable.
The rip offs all went away after I ended up at a local Hiphop club (on a Wednesday) it wasn't busy, maybe that was why they only charged 1000 yen ($12) for all you can drink. Yes, that's right: all you can drink!
This place was called Club Mars on Nishidori street. Definitely check it out if you ever make it to Fukuoka, who would pass up a $12 all you can drink party.
Fukuoka is the capital city of Fukuoka Prefecture and is situated on the northern shore of the island of Kyushu in Japan.
