Today was fun! I met up with my friend Phee and we went to get our hair cut. Our hairdresser, Rod, is from France and has been in Japan for a very long time....well over 20 years. Here we are (before getting our hair cut). I'm on the right.
His hair salon is cool! There is even a chandelier!
A colorful closet for our bags.
After getting our hair cut we went into Tenjin ( an area in the middle of Fukuoka city) to meet with my friend Kristin. We sat around Starbucks chatting. Then Kristin and I walked to her car so I took some pics of what I saw on the way there.
As it was getting late, Yatai food stall were being set up. These are super popular in Tenjin and when my friend in Tokyo comes to Fukuoka city, she always goes to one. There are many of these along the wide sidewalks.
Then we walked by a shrine.
Then we walked by a place where a Canada Day party was being held! Happy Birthday Canada!! They were serving Canadian beer, poutine, lobster and more and one lucky person will win a free flight to Vancouver!
While we were driving home I saw this pagoda and had to take a picture!
Kristin and I ended the day with yakiniku! Yakiniku is basically Korean barbeque-you grill the meat at your table. As it was Saturday night and we didn't have reservations, it took going to 3 restaurants before finding one that had space for us. And we still had to wait about 15 minutes which I know isn't long and certainly better than the 1.5 hour wait at a different yakiniku place but at this point we were beyond hungry so 15 minutes sure felt long lol.
But it was soooooo worth the wait! Super delicious!!
Thanks Kristin and Phee for a lovely day!!
