Hilton Seahawk is 5 years old! Time flies so fast! I still remember when I snapped a photo of workers removing the JAL sign on top of the Seahawk hotel. Can’t believe that was 5 years ago already. I wrote about it in this post.
It looks like this weekend will be the best one for hanami parties. Grab your mats (doesn’t have to be blue) and reserve your spot tonight! Photo was taken last year in Maizuru Park.

This year’s Hakata Lantern Festival (Hakata Tomyo Watching) takes place on October 23. Be sure not to miss this once a year feast for the eyes in Fukuoka. Hakata’s streets will be lined up by paper lanterns, while some open fields will be covered with lanterns whose messagew you can only decipher by gaining some elevation! It makes for a romantic stroll, enjoying the cool autumn air. Not sure if it’s worth going to? Check out our photos from last year’s edition here!
