As this month is the month for Christmas, I would like to share a shot of Fukuoka tower showing a beautiful Christmas tree lighted on the tower. It was a cooling night but I wanted to capture a good composition of the Fukuoka tower with the right timing of long exposure to get the Christmas tree. Merry Christmas!

After spending a lot of time doing research for a good photography opportunity in Fukuoka, I finally came across the Atago Shrine which is located on top of a hill where I can have a breathtaking view of the Fukuoka city with the Fukuoka tower in good view. Getting to the Atago Shrine from Muromi station involves in walking and climbing up the slope as it is a hill, to locate this shrine as a tourist, GPS will prove to be very handy, otherwise, get a pre-paid data plan on your mobile phone to look for this shrine. The walk was definitely worthwhile for me as I had a very good view of the city in the evening. I aimed to get there before evening so that I can take a night shot with long exposure. Please enjoy my picture.
Located in Sasaguri, Nanzoin Temple is fairly convenient to get to by train from Hakata station in Fukuoka. I just have to purchase a train ticket for the destination of Kido-Nanzōin-mae Station and the rest is simple just by searching for the right platform to board the train.
After alighting from the train and out of the station, the reclining buddha statue is so big that you can’t miss it from the exit of the station, just look up and you will be able to see it. The temple is a very short distance walk away. It was a very nice visit to the temple for me. I like it there.
