What is Tonkotsu Ramen?! 

Tonkotsu ramen originated in the Kyushu, Fukuoka region of Japan. The technique is to create a creamy looking and hearty broth consisting of boiled pork bone! Tonkotsu mean "Pork-bone based". The ramen is not only popular for it's region and well known name, but the flavors are exquisite ! You might mix the Tonkotsu Ramen with the Miso ramen because of the appearance, but just know that Tonkotsu ramen is an amazingly delicious flavor on it's own! The best place to get it is of course, in Fukuoka! 

So, what kind of landscapes are in Fukuoka?!

In the calm and quiet region of Fukuoka, with a nice ramen and a bike ride through the streets, you can find many seaside parks and beautiful landscapes! Here are a few places you should check out! 

1. Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine

Dazaifu is an amazing Island on the island of Kyushu and is home to many zen rock gardens as well as many nice landscapes and absolutely stunning plum trees! 

2. Ohori Park

Ohori park is situated beautifully near a quaint and peaceful area with many buddhism sculptures located close to the Fukuoka art museum. It's an amazing walk through and a peaceful place to think or take a date! 

3. Nokonoshima Island Park

Apparently this beautiful and luscious is the place that held Kyushu's first marriage! Aside from this fun fact, the Nokonoshima Island park is one of the most amazing and flower garden rich parks!
