Fukuoka Hawk

fukuoka hawk statue

Fukuoka hawk statue

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.
