[Introduction]

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 about the 5th day of my Fukuoka trip. I just found the international terminal in Fukuoka Airport was photogenic.

[Closing]

That’s it for the article about the 5th day of my Fukuoka trip.

As the final article of Fukuoka trip series, I will recap the trip. I visited Fukuoka in time with winter illuminations and found there were tourist spots more than I expected. This time I went around the central areas of Fukuoka, so I would like to visit other areas in Fukuoka such as Kokura and Mojiko (Moji Port) next time.

Now my Fukuoka trip series with 13 articles was completed. Thank you for reading my blog.

Regarding my next trip, I planed to visit Vladivostok in Russia from March 15 to 18. However, due to the coronavirus, which has been spreading worldwide, I decided to cancel the trip.

So I don’t have any plans for my next trip and thus this travel blog will be suspended for a while. Once the coronavirus comes to end, I will arrange the next trip and announce it in this article. Anyway, I will take a short break 🙂
