福岡のベニス、柳川にいってきた！Fukuoka's "Venice" in Yanagawa City
Tatsu and I decided to visit Yanagawa City, famous for it's river boats and delicious eel. We kind of messed up in terms of season, it's going to be gorgeous when the sakura bloom, but I guess we were lucky that it wasn't too crowded, and the Hina Matsuri decorations were definitely a nice touch! Have you ever been to Yanagawa?
