Fukuoka (Yanagawa) Kimono Walk

Back in April, a fellow French blogger and friend came to visit me in Fukuoka and we went to Yanagawa to see the famous Sagemon festival. Of course we were wearing kimono ! Here is a short post about our journey in southern Fukuoka.

The rainy season officially began at the beginning of June in Fukuoka and it didn't rain for the first couple of weeks. Impatient as I am and as I love the Japanese rainy season, I wanted to put myself in the "tsuyu" mood since the beginning : I went to visit the frog temple in Fukuoka ! A unique, astonishing and unknown place.

Yanagawa Canal Boat Tour (Kawa Kudari)

Last month, my fellow blogger friend Joranne came to Fukuoka for a weekend.
She wanted to try yatai and kimono.
Rather than staying in Fukuoka city, I sent her the link of Yanagawa's Sagemon festival which ended soon after her coming and she loved the idea so we went there.

If you walk around Fukuoka, there are great chances that you come across me and my camera.
Indeed, I walk around 10km very weekend in the city and I have a lot to share. As I strongly want to introduce Fukuoka more and more to the people all over the world, I decided to create the "FukuoSnap" project.

This is what I have been asking myself for a few weeks. Last year when I was thinking of 2017, I had real ambitions and a dream: stopping full-time webdesign and make my passion my job. Since then, and after having slightly revised this project down, I am completely lost. Should a passion remain passion?

Long time no see ! I was hesitating to delete the blog or not but I decided to keep it and continue to write here sometimes. 

A year and a half ago I was one of the first to introduce Ainoshima, one of the cats islands near Fukuoka. I was planning to tour around the prefecture 8 islands and last Saturday I finally visited the second one: Genkaijima.
