Japan Fukuoka Mall Food Ramen

23 November 2015

Sudden downpour

Eating ramen at ramen stadium in canal city

I stepped outside this evening, and the sky seemed to be 2 metres above my head, and it was very windy. It was forecast to rain this morning but didnt, but it felt like there was about to be a cyclone now.
Sure did have a lot of rain on this trip.
This required a sudden change of plans, I stood out the front of the hotel googling for indoor locations as the cloud seemed to get thicker and thicker, swirling all about. I could see it even though it was dark.
I decided on the nearby, canal city, apparently a futuristic indoor / outdoor shopping centre between Tenjin and Hakata complete with lasers. The internet tells me its designed by the same famous guy who designed the Osaka mall with the roof garden which I remember from a few trips back.
Course mentally plotted, I followed the canal from my hotel to the city named after the canal, it did not rain yet.

At one point, I looked outside from behind glass after being 2 levels underground for ages and there was a river running down the street! But it wasnt raining, I raced to get a better look, but by the time I got outside, just puddles were left, and I walked back to my hotel without a drop of rain from the sky.

Thats enough about the weather. This did however result in not many photos.

It was however delicious, best ramen I have had, the best kind of noodles, they are thinner and chewier.


Japan-Fukuoka-Mall-Food-Ramen - The ramen stadium is not what I imagined. Its 10 stores next door to one another. I had an iron chef vision that was not fulfilled.
