We took this historic train to Ibusuki.  It had well dressed staff, wooden paneling, and was more about the experience than anything else.

Ibusuki is known for its hot (really, hot) sand baths that are on the beach. Kinda bizarre.

 We had dinner at the the Yatai, or street stalls in Fukuoka

 

Dazaifu is a day trip from Fukuoka: temples, gardens, and a small traditional tea house.

Dazaifu, a small place had this huge museum near the temples and gardens

Note the name of the leaf blower. Nothing particularly Zen about a leaf blower.
