It was March.  We had the craving again to go to a cold place and bathe in onsen.

I grabbed a sales with Peach Aviation and got a JPY12000 round trip to Fukuoka.

This place is a high-class restaurant for expensive dinner.  But they provide very cheap, super fish plate for breakfast and lunch.

There posted was the fish painting contest by local children.  I was so impressed with the quality.  This is Fukuoka.  You can tell kids love fish so much.  This is 8 to 10 years old department.  I love the grilled fish one.

This is 5 to 8 years.  My favorite is the school of fish.

But, lo and behold, my most favorite picture was in 3 to 5 years old department.  Look at this magnificent red snapper!  I want to hang it on my wall

 

 

Nagahama-Ya Ramen

Since we are in Nagahama area, which is the home of Hakata Tonkotsu Ramen, we might as well stop by for a slurp.

We just finished our breakfast.  But this ramen is just a few minute walk from the fish market building.  And it’s already lunch time.

The place was packed.
