I traveled to Fukuoka, in mid December. While Fukuoka has an image of gourmet town, it has also tourist spots more than I expected. In this article, I will write Marinoa City Fukuoka as part of Day 2. It has more than 120 outlet shops and amusement facilities in its vast premises, so you can spend a whole day, particularly if you are a shopping lover.

Breakfast at ANA Crowne Plaza Fukuoka
It was the second day of my Fukuoka trip. To begin with, I will have breakfast at ANA Crowne Plaza Fukuoka where I have been staying.
It was a buffet-style breakfast and contained a proper balance of Japanese cuisine and Western one. In addition, several local foods were provided.
Here is what I had today.
Gold’s Gym Hakata Riverain
After breakfast, I moved from Hakata station to Nakasu-Kawabata station by subway and came to “Hakata Riverain”, a commercial mall.
I came here because I would like to do a workout at Gold’s Gym located on the first basement of the mall.
Today, I had a workout mainly for the chest.
Marinoa City Fukuoka
After the workout at Gold’s Gym, I moved to Meihama station by subway for the first destination of the second day.
I walked for a while and came to “Marinoa City Fukuoka”.
“Marinoa City Fukuoka” is a commercial complex opened in 2000. Its main facility is a big outlet mall with more than 120 shops.
In addition, in the “Marina Side area”, which faces the sea, there are a yacht harbor, a Ferris wheel, and a food court etc.
Anpanman (Red Bean Bread Man), a famous Japanese cartoon character.
The Ferris wheel matched with the background of the blue sky.
I will ride on the Ferris wheel.

Other snaps mainly including the Ferris wheel.
The facility included a hotel.
This is an athletic facility “NOVOLT”.
I felt as if I were in a foreign resort.
This building is “Notre Dame Marinoa”, a wedding hall.
A yacht facility operated by YAMAHA.
An island over there was “Nokonoshima Island”.
Now I will return.
I stopped by “Kisuimaru” for lunch.
In the restaurant.
I ordred “Kisuimaru-Don”.
Then, I will move to the next destination (around Fukuoka Tower) by bus.
