Today we had to say goodbye to Fukuoka. In the past few days we have been exploring the city and we have managed to squeeze in some really nice activities, such as visits to the Kyushu university, Kyulux (a company that researches OLED technologies) and some tourist attractions within the city.
We took the Shinkansen to Nagoya, but before that, everyone had some well-deserved free time in the morning. Some people (Radu included) decided to explore the city a bit more, while others left the hotel early and made a quick visit to the city of Hiroshima, which was largely destroyed by an atomic bomb almost 80 years ago. Another group (Gialesi included) went to the peaceful Ohori Park. Here we enjoyed the (relatively) cool temperature in the shadow of the trees and next to the big lake in the middle of the park.
In the Shinkansen we enjoyed the Japanese landscape, which included the urban outskirts of Kyoto, the mountainous villages between Osaka and Nagoya, and last but not least the beautiful Vantelin Dome, baseball stadium home to the Nagoya Chunichi Dragons.
After our 3 hour trip with the shinkansen, we finally arrived at Nagoya and had a few hours to explore the city before going to bed. But before that some of us spent some time at the lovely sauna and warm bath at the hotel. Tomorrow we will be visiting some museums and explore the city even more.
