2016 May: Japan: Kyushu: Fukuoka Tower

Fukuoka Tower (福岡タワー Fukuoka Tawā)
The 234m high tower is covered with 8000 half mirrors and is the tallest seaside tower in Japan. [Reference]

Enjoy the night shots from the tower:

So it's been part of my itinerary to visit towers for a good 360 degree view of the city.  Normally sending postcards is one its service but this tower has none of it.  It's a small simple circular section. Nothing much to do at the top (unlike Taipei 101, which took me 3 hrs before I left the viewing deck).

This one interests me, there is a section which shows language of love, where the first 4 entries  came from the Philippines.

And this one, I normally don't believe and do not try fortune telling, the tower has one but it likes those in Japanese shrines, that you'll get a paper of what is your fortune.  With what I'm going through during this trip, it struck me - "Health: Get some rest you are tired.  It will take a longer time if you push yourself too  hard."  Oh! The foxes guarding the tower know's what I going through, haha!
