Old Towns of Japan: Fukuoka (Akizuki/Dazaifu)

Akizuki-machi, Fukuoka.
This is my favorite place in Japan. It has always been a happy memory for me. This was the first Edo-era town I went to. It is a bit far from downtown Fukuoka, but one can arrive by road bike in about two hours.

A short trip up the road from Akizuki is Dazaifu. It was an ancient city in Japan. Today there are many remains and the beautiful Daizaifu temple. These pictures were taken in 2005. I cycled there again this August 18th.
