Something from six years ago in Fukuoka today…

The exterior looks like this.

Fukuoka Tower

View from Fukuoka’s Hilton Sea Hawk Hotel of Fukuoka Tower (福岡タワー)

I thought about wandering over to the Fukuoka Tower for an aerial view of Fukuoka, but the view from the top of the Sea Hawk was similar, uncrowded (just me!), and free.

Sculptures like this serve as a meeting place when tens of thousands of people are trying to find each other on game day. Things seemed eerily quiet on this day as the team wasn’t playing. Around this location there were lots of bronzed player hands that kids could “shake” or at least compare to their own hands.

Fukuoka Hawk

The inscription under this statue says something about a hawk which rode on a ship in 1827 for 90 days before landing in Fukuoka. I’m not sure what the 1795-1877 signifies. In any event, the local baseball team in Fukuoka are the Hawks so maybe this story had something to do with their name.

The building in the background on the left is the Hilton Fukuoka Sea Hawk Hotel.

Sorry for the missing post yesterday. I haven’t been able to access the internet from my laptop until now.

I took a tour of the Fukuoka Dome because no games were scheduled while I was in Fukuoka. Afterwards, I wandered over to the nearby Hilton. You can go to the top (no charge) for views of Fukuoka similar to those of the nearby Fukuoka Tower and save yourself 800 yen and possible crowds.
