seeing Fukuoka with Australian

Yesterday, I guided an Australian man who sent a message through Japan Cycling Navigator in the city of Fukuoka. He says that he will stay in Japan for about 2 months.

At first, we visited the Kushida Shrine(櫛田神社) in Hakata ward(博多区). It is a famous shrine because the Hakata Yamagasa(博多山笠) is held around the shrine each year. But, unfortunately, the building is smaller than I expected and dons not has great atmosphere.

Next, we visited the Fukuoka Jyo-shi(福岡城址) and the Oohori-kouen(大濠公園). The sky was clear, but air was very hot.

After that, we ate Nagahama-ramen(長浜ラーメン) as earlier lunch. Also, unfortunately, it was not so delicious as well as I ate in the past.

And, we went to the highest place in the Fukuoka Tower(福岡タワー) to see the city.

Our last visit was a shop that sells bike goods because he needed some items for his this touring by bike.

He will leave Fukuoka for Beppu(別府) early morning on August 7. Using a map, I gave some advices to him about the route that he will use for his way to Beppu at his accommodation before I said "good-bye" to him.

I really hope his secure and enjoyable touring by bike in Japan.

Sounds like he got a pretty nice tour. I'm glad that there are folks like you around and I'm looking forward to visiting Fukuoka sometime myself!
