This year I haven't been in a Christmas mood before the last minute : I didn't even decorated my home !
If Christmas in Japan is day spent with lovers or family, I usually spend it alone. Indeed, Daisuke  is working late so I set myself small traditions and it reassures me to follow them each year. Far from KFC, cosplay parties and other Christmas cakes filled with cream, here is how was my Christmas 2015 .

In addition to guide books,  I always liked to have reviews from people living or people who have visited a place I want to visit. They often have good advices to share that can dramatically change a journey. That's why I decided to deliver you all my secrets and advices on Fukuoka.

Strolling in Dazaifu

On Saturday morning, I got up early and I decided to go to the nearby town of Dazaifu (太宰府). My last time there was few monthes ago and as my coworkers told me that the mapple tree leaves were at their best, it was a great occasion to go. I think I was right because in fact autumn is finally here ! It's just very late compared to other years.
