Great shots! Nice combo of street scenes, skyscrapers, and nature.
I took the ferry from Busan to Fukuoka and had a few hours in the city. I was lucky enough to see the annual sumo competition. Also, Fukuoka ramen is the best I've ever had.

Great pics of a thriving city that even Japanese people tend to forget. "Metro" Fukuoka as defined by what we're used to seeing with the US or Canadian Census would be a good bit above 5 million people.
