From Kyoto to Fukuoka by bullet train

The bullet train arrives… or was it departing?  It’s all becoming a bit of a blur now, but I do remember that it was very fast (duh?) and very comfortable.

Taken in Fukuoka. Another rainy day in Japan…

Red boats and their reflections…

Wishing you a happy weekend.

I am going to have a no-computer weekend (except to link in to the memes), so I will visit you after the weekend. Thanks for dropping by.

Hiya Evelyn,
Nobody can mistake your entry button on the skywatch page :-)
Grey skies in Japan. Good to offset the bright red boats though.
I am a little disappointed that nobody came to look at my sky. Not a one. I may not bother to post again.

Great that you're having a PC-free weekend, Evelyn! You really got them all here! Well, done.

Julie said...

Nice to be able to see part of Japan through your eyes. I am not sure that I would like to travel on a really really fast train like this. I like my travel sedate and relaxing. Thank you for this post.

I love these photos! We also took the shinkansen from Kyoto to Hakata, actually. (other side of the river). The whole area is such fun to explore...we walked ourselves to death! Loved it. And, then we went on to Yatsushiro which is south of this area. Memories...thank you.

The bullet train looks sleek and fast. I wish we had one of these here.

James said...

I love the beautiful reflections and the wonderful lines of the train and the station. Oh and the bridge is amazing!

Ann said...

so it went as fast as a bullet? My husband went on one.

Francisca said...

This is odd, Evelyn... I could've sworn that I had already left you comment for this post for SkyWatch... Anyway, you did get them all: sky, reflection and bridge! Enjoy your weekend! :-)

Francisca said...

PS. Oh yes, now I remember... you left moderation on and are out for the weekend... :-D

cieldequimper said...

Gosh, when I commented yesterday on the reflections I didn't even notice the bridge. I'm blushing. It's so unobtrusive, it's lovely!

Cezar and Léia said...

Amazing set of pictures!Everything there is so modern and beautiful!
Happy Sunday
