Dazaifu in Fukuoka Japan is amazing. Not only because of the incredible thousand year old buildings but also because it is not overrun by tourists. I felt like I was experiencing an authentic slice of rich Japanese culture.
Following my tour of the Shrine I proceeded up nearby Homan Mtn with the intention of camping. However, at the peak it was simply too cold. Spirits doused I descended 3.1km in nearly complete darkness with only my headlamp to light the frosty trail.
