I had this brilliant idea that I would see the world's second largest Ferris wheel when I went to Japan. Did you know that it takes 2o minutes to make one revolution in this genius contraption that is second only to the London Eye? Yes, yes, this was going to be my Japanese moment of glory. But then we got there and it was hot. really really hot. And the ferris wheel was 45 minutes away from the place we were staying. And I didn't have a boy to kiss for the 20 minutes of ferris wheel fun. And I'm not a very determined tourist. So I mostly just got foot massages, ate ramen and went to the movies. Here is a brief run down of my trip to Fukuoka Japan divided into "categories of international interest" for your ease and enjoyment.
