|I left Hiroshima this morning, and took the Shinkansen to Fukuoka / Hakata on the island of Kyushu, Japans major southermost island. Im staying at the Sea Hawk Hotel, a bit \ higher end, but wanted to spluge a bit. Its part of Hawks TOwn, a massive sprawling compound consisting of a pretty western style mall, the Yahoo Fukuoka Dome where the Hawks play baseball, and this hotel. Im on the 14th, with a decent view of both Fukuoka and the sea. Felt a bit odd being a backpacker checkign into this place, bu ttheyre pretty friendly, and speak pretty good English here.
Im writing this on a web tv setup they have in the room, which is prett nice, but wont be abl eto upload pics, Ill find an Internet cafe once I get the chance. The keyboard is even more confusing then the usual ones here in Japan. Slick setup tho, I can view messages and whatnot righ ton the TV. Plus I Get BBC like I did in Hiroshima, be nice to listen to english.
Going to scout out the area here, maybe catch a movie at the Cinema nearby tonight, if I can figure out which movie is decent (or catch somethign like Transporter 2 or Posieden in English)
