Last Sunday, I visited "Karatsu"(唐津) with my family. The purpose of this trip is to spend relaxed time at a hotel. The city of "Karatsu" locates in the eastern end of Saga prefecture(佐賀県). It took about 2hours by car to get to the hotel from my home. (But, we used several roads that require fees to reduce the driving time. If not, it would take more than three hours.)

After taking a bath, we had dinner at the restaurant in the hotel.

The next day, Monday, we visited "Yobuko"(呼子) where is famous for its morning market. We bought several foods there and went back to "Karatsu-Jo"(castle)(唐津城). For our lunch, we ate "Karatsu-burger"(唐津バーガー) in "Niji-no-Matsubara"(虹の松原) where is a man-made forest with a lot of traditional pine tree.

On our way to our home, we stopped at ”Canal City Hakata”(キャナルシティ博多) in the city of Fukuoka because our children wanted to buy some character goods at "Jump-shop" and "Pokemon-center".

I took several photos in this trip, but unfortunately, I could not take a photo on the second day because my camera's battery was out.

Wow, the coast there is beautiful. Thank you for posting your photos. Maybe some day I'll be able to visit 唐津 too! It looks like it might be pretty interesting.

Also, I hate it when my camera battery dies! I usually have a backup, though, at least.

Thank you for a comment. "Niji-no-Matsubara"'s many pine trees must surprise you, I think. And, the coast was really beautiful. If you have a chance, you should visit there.
