11 Jul, 2019 in Fukuoka

Uminonakamichi Seaside Park on the northern part of Fukuoka is a gorgeous park with large fields of flowers, playgrounds, and children activities. It occupies a very large area, so you can easily walk around and explore for half to full day, and just take it all in. Fukuoka itself it’s very pretty, but that park […]

8 Mar, 2019 in Fukuoka

While visiting the Fukuoka area in Japan I took a one day getaway trip towards the east to see the Kitakyushu area, and make a stop on the way to do one of my favorite things when I travel – go up cable cars. The higher the better, the more spectacular the views – the happier […]

27 Dec, 2018 in Fukuoka

I love specialty museums. I’m so tired of the same old typical museums in each city that every time I run into something different, I’m ecstatic. In a recent trip to Japan to the Fukuoka region, I did a quick trip to the nearby Kitakyushu and while on the bus from one cable car to another […]

25 Dec, 2018 in Kagoshima, Visions

On my last visit to Japan I visited a new region. Kagoshima is down on the south western part of Japan, an area with lots of volcano mountains, which together with the Japanese islands landscape offers some spectacular scenery. In Japan this also means hotsprings and spa, which the Japanese know how to do very […]

22 Dec, 2018 in Kumamoto, Visions

Japan is one of my favorite travel destinations. I’ve been to Japan many times, and it has always proved a unique cultural and aesthetically beautiful experience challenging much of how I previously experienced Asia, or travel anywhere else in the world. In my most recent visit I set out to start from Kagoshima in the […]

20 Nov, 2018 in Fukuoka, Visions

In my recent visit to Japan I had a chance to visit the Fukuoka region, and a quick fast train away is Kitakyushu, an old industrial city. Near a very large trading port, surrounded by mountains, one of the first things I did was – ofcourse – to catch a cable car to the top to […]

12 Nov, 2018 in Fukuoka, Visions

Japan is one of my favorite places to travel. Even short trip to places to non touristic places seems to end up as being very enjoyable, and me generally being very impressed and delighted with the Japanese. Even my trip to Fukuoka, that didn’t have any specific highlight in min, ended up being quite nice. […]

17 Dec, 2017 in Sapporo

Wrapping up my long stay at Sapporo in Hokkaido last summer, there are two places I left unmentioned in Sapporo the Former Hokkaido Government Office near the train station and the Maruyama Park and Hokkaido Shrine I visited on the way to the cable cars. The government office you’ll probably stumble upon a few times when roaming […]

1 Oct, 2017 in Daytrips from Sapporo

I did lots of daytrips around Hokkaido, and the last one I’ll mention was on the way to Furano, stopping by Asahikawa. Really wasn’t sure what to do in the area, didn’t do my homework, and had very little time, but the person at the hotel suggested taking the shuttle to see the local ice museum. […]

23 Sep, 2017 in Daytrips from Sapporo

While spending the summer in Sapporo in Hokkadio, at the northern region of Japan, I made a number of daytrips to explore a bit of the mountainous region of Furano. I ended up in a mountainous cultural village Ningle Terrance located next to fancy hotsprings of the New Furano Prince Hotel Onsen with a nearby cable car, the […]
