Ibusuki is known for its hot (really, hot) sand baths that are on the beach. Kinda bizarre.

 We had dinner at the the Yatai, or street stalls in Fukuoka


Dazaifu is a day trip from Fukuoka: temples, gardens, and a small traditional tea house.

Dazaifu, a small place had this huge museum near the temples and gardens

Note the name of the leaf blower. Nothing particularly Zen about a leaf blower.
