AIBO (Artificial Inteligence RoBOt)
PARO - the therapeutic robot
On the beach near the tower there is this artificial peninsula (or island?) where the weddings are held. Very romantic and I imagine very expensive.
I was walking around losing my way and not caring about it because the city is not that big so you can't really get lost. :) Besides, there are mountains around the city and the sea to the north, so one can always know how to orientate.
Planes were constantly flying from and landing to the Fukuoka airport. It was as if it was the busiest airport in the world.
In the center of the city there is a beautiful park with a big lake in it. People fed the fishes, ducks, tortoises and pigeons! :))
As I read, in Fukuoka there are streets with the stalls and you must not miss to eat there. I sat there, ordered food and people next to me started talking with me and buying me beer! People in Kyushu were much more open-hearted and kind, so on this 9 days trip around Kyushu I felt perfectly safe, welcomed and had a great time with the locals. I love Kyushu! :)))
