Sorry no update earlier - had no internet access in Karatsu and trying to catch up & upload pix so I don't get too backlogged, will come back later when I have a chance & expand with descriptions, for the meanwhile you can read Paula's entries -
day 3 in Karatsu- http://kisarazumama.livejournal.com/53051.html
day 4 in Hakata - http://kisarazumama.livejournal.com/53421.html
Our swank hotel in Nagasaki
Karatsu Kunchi festival and parade and Karatsu Castle
early morning scenery in Karatsu
Hakata doll factory and shoppe in Fukuoka
Now to check out and head to Beppu to visit the boiling hot springs of Hell! Probably no net access tonite either as we'll be in a traditional Ryuokan.
