Second day wake up to the raining in Saga and after 16 km of quite boring run in this flat city went to temple area with very old trees. Afternoon met with Japanese athletic team from Kyushu university. I tested them on the back run from the beach, it was great run with young Japanese guys with great possibility for marathons (6 km with hill on the end under 23 minutes, ugh this shuld be my flat marathon pace in future). Day was finished with crazy drinking with NTU Rugby team, they are crazy and very funny big guys.
Third day was more lazy but we still wake up for 11 km run in the Fukuoka hilly parks. At the morning visited national rugby team – Coca Cola West Red Spark (NTU rugby team will visit their match, where will be defeated) and then did shopping in Fukuoka, brrrr.
Fourth day spent lot of time in bus and visited very long bridge Kanmon 関門橋 to another island Yamaguchi, there visited very importan place where where was helding peace confrence between Qing Dynasty of China and Meiji Japan after Sino-Japanese War and peace treaty were signed in 1895 here. After eat in fish market very delicious Sushi and could try pufferfish moved to hot spring town Yufuin which is lying under vulacno Mt. Yufu 由布岳, I didn’t prepare map to there, but found amazing trail up and visited cute peak nearby.
Fifth day was again shopping day but I left for very long run in mountains close to Fukuoka and tasted very small part of 2500 km long Kyushu Nature Trail, separate article about this long run here in section significant.
