Day 4 Across the Rice Fields of Itoshima

Time to warm up my self
It almost lunch time, so today i am going to continue my bicycle trip around the studio Kura. This time i went to the Karatsu way which is towards east side.

The view across the Studio Kura
In case you still not sure where or Fukuoka is, Fukuoka or (福岡市 Fukuoka-shi) is the capital city of Fukuoka prefecture and is situated on the northern shore of the island of Kyushu in Japan. It was considered as one amongst the world's most liveable cities, Fukuoka was praised for its green spaces in a metropolitan setting.

The countryside here at Itoshima - Fukuoa, has many things to offer from incredibly fresh air, the sun might be a bit hot but the good thing is this area is close to mountains and beach so it gets windy a lot so i rarely even sweat :) You can also see some farmers harvesting on the fields, they have a lot of variety of rice, fruits, and vegetables as well! Some of them even have their own vegetables right in front their house like Hiro family was. They have greenhouses, forests, temples and not to mention the warm and friendly people of Itoshima. So as you wonder around and gaze a lot to the sceneries you can kind of lost your self in space of time i guess (which i did hehe). Some japanese people whom i met while i stayed here said that they have traveled to some other cities in Japan, but they finally agreed that Fukuoka is a eventually a good place to stay.

Meal that i ordered, i think it's called horumon (grilled offal)
