I was met at the baggage pick-up exit and helped to a taxi, where the lady gave me a piece of paper to give to the taxi driver. The Washington Canal City Hotel is okay. It is located next to a new shopping mall.
After check-in, where I found out everything was pre-paid by Kyushu University, I went up to my room 22 hours after I woke up that morning. I asked myself, why am I going through this ordeal? I'm too old for this. Then again, good food, ample drinks, two movies and fine service. All for free.
I was hungry, so walked a short distance to CoCo Curry House. Snow flurries. It's cold, but tolerably so.
Interesting concept. You order some basic curry, and determine the degree of spicy hotness. I chose #3, which was average. Fukuoka people must like it hot, for I almost died. Beer just made it worse. You can go up to #10. I also added corn, poached egg and garlic chips. Best curry meal I've had in a long time.
Tomorrow, Kyushu University.
