Since I haven't had much to eat all day and didn't have time to find soy milk, I chose beer with my bento for its nutritional value. Now heading for Nagasaki.

Ah! Have a good time. Lisa still raves about the pork buns in Hakata/Fukuoka station at the end of the Shinkansen line, where you transfer to the train to Nagasaki. (I've told her, "It's a lot way to Hakata, dear, or I'd pop out and get you some.)

As you may know, Lisa and I spent an enjoyable (but humid) day there after N2007, being very happy that we'd escaped the hurricane that everyone else who'd gone to Tokyo was weathering. Our tourism there was the tram lines, the A-Bomb museum, and the recreation of the Dutch Mission. We were fascinated that they could build such a re-creation mainly because one of the Dutch governors was bored and built a scale model of the village and sent it back home, so the preservationists had a model from which to work when they set out to restore the place.
