Fukuoka

We started our day with an early trip to Minoshima Market Street. A small street which is lined by shops selling all ingredients one could need for some good old homecooking. Unfortunately, we were too early by Japanese standards and most of the shops were still closed. Although some shops which sell fish were already closing again.

To kill some time we visited the nearby Sumiyoshi shrine. As it is still November, some families were celebrating 7-5-3 (a celebration for young children) and we were also lucky and saw some Japanese wedding couples at the shrine. We did only witness one couple entering the shrine for a ceremony. All others seemed to just take photos.

After that we returned to the market street and browsed through the stores. We bought some really delicious kaki. As Minoshima Market street is very small, we went on to walk through Tenjin. We enjoyed some delicious tempura there.
