Canal City and Downtown Fukuoka

Yesterday we went to Canal City, which is one of Japan's modern architectural wonders. Its a bunch of buildings centred around a small canal that together form a huge outdoor shopping mall with a lot of interesting vistas. Its a fairly photogenic place.

We also biked around downtown Fukuoka, which is a bustling urban centre. These are some pictures taken from a bridge in the Nakasu district near Canal City:

I'd like to go there sometime at night to see what it looks like when all those signs are lit up. Must be quite the site.
