Japan – Fukuoka

We went to Japan in October 2010 for our honeymoon. We decided to head south to Fukuoka to go indoor skiing. Unfortunately while the website was still up, the actual place was not and all we saw was an empty lot when we got there. It was disappointing, but we did get to see a lovely city and eat great food, including the best (and cheapest) sushi train I’ve ever been to.

Japan – Miyajima

We went to Japan in October 2010 for our honeymoon. Miyajima is a little island off the coast of Hiroshima. We travelled there by ferry and explored around whilst trying to avoid the hungry (greedy?) deer roaming the island. Admittedly they were much more tame than the ones in Nara.
