Fukuoka Day 3: Tenjin

Posted on Wednesday, 11 January 2012

Tenjin is the downtown area of Fukuoka where all the shopping centers are. Because the previous day was very hectic, we decided to relax, do some shopping, and take a break from doing all sorts tourist-y things this time.

I did most of my shopping in a mall called Tenjin Core, which also houses some very familiar brands if you avidly follow Japanese fashion magazines. Practiced my ninja skills and quickly took a few pictures of the stores and the mannequins when I was done shopping and had no money left, hahaha.

Deep red and old rose (or smoky pink, as they call it) were two of the most prevalent color trends consistent in every store I went to! Sooo pretty!

Accessories heaven. They’re all into giant bows, shiny hair ties and bolo ties/necklaces at the moment.

After shopping for winter clothes that we can probably wear in a tropical place such as Manila, we walked around the city to look for a place to eat.

Nothing like burger omurice to give that much-needed boost for a busy shop-til-you-drop afternoon.

Somehow, we all managed to consume our frozen drinks even if it was freezing outside. Some things in life are just strange that way. Like bare legs in winter.

While my brothers were checking out the Tower Records in Solaria Stage, I practiced my ninja skills again to take some street snaps of people in the area.

Went back to Hakata Station for dinner. Tried their KFC out, and it was so good (see what I did there) I finally understood why the Japanese are all KFC-crazy.

After a long day, in our hotel room, it was good to be greeted back by Matsujun and Hyde on Music Station.
