Fukuoka: A Late Night Stopover By Bullet Train

Fukuoka: A Late Night Stopover By Bullet Train

on Oct. 8, 2009 by

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.
