We went straight for some local food.

For dinner we went to "Raumen Stadium" where Ryan made sure to try Fukoka's specialty, pork ramen. He placed his order at a vending machine. Soon, it arrived at our table.
I opted for sushi!
But not this one... (fourth from the top)
We loved the walk along the water back to our hotel, taking in the quaint open air restaurants alongside cafes and shops overloaded with cuteness.

The next morning we picked up our visas and continued to explore the city. We strolled through a gorgeous park admiring the local wildlife, then continued on to a peaceful Japanese Garden.
Our last stop was the Fukoka Castle Ruins.
|what a trooper :)|
Finally we headed back to the ferry pier to return to Busan. The departure time had been moved up half an hour earlier. Once we boarded we realized why. A tropical storm tossed the ferry around on the rough water for three long hours.
I was sick the entire time. Ugh. No boats for me for awhiiiiile. Luckily my amazing husband took great care of me.
All in all, a great quick trip to Japan!
