This is supposed to be Fukouka's best ramen noodle (not to be confused with the cheap instant noodles sold in the States) vendor. We went back a second time after Beppu
Sharon and I have just returned from a last-minute decision to relax in Japan for a few days. 3 nights/4 days was not nearly enough, of course, but it was refreshing to get out of Taiwan for a bit.
Literally from the moment I stepped onto the jet bridge (the thing that connects the aircraft to the gate -I had to look it up on Wikipedia) I was floored with warm feelings of contentment; indeed, my every pore oozed with happiness and warmth as I knew we were to spend a few days in The Land of the Rising Sun. There are 3 countries which always give me that feeling: Thailand, Indonesia, and Japan. I will visit these countries for the rest of my life. I love them.
Here are some pix from the short but sweet Fukouka and Beppu trip on Kyushu Island, Japan.
