[SAGA] Takeo Onsen and Shrine

It is my first time to use a JR rail pass and I thought that establishing a base in Fukuoka and just going on daily day trips was the best way to maximize it. In the end, I wasn’t wrong and ended up saving almost PHP10,000 on train tickets. Not a bad deal! The prefecture right below Fukuoka is Saga, but choices of attractions seem scarce. While I mostly just visit the namesake of the prefecture in the form of its capital, in this case the city of Saga, I decided to skip it this time around and just go to Takeo. Takeo what?

[NAGASAKI] The Only Sequel To Oppenheimer That You Need

Are you itching for a sequel to Oppenheimer? As if yet another atomic bomb explosion is what the planet really needed right now. Why not make it an immersive experience and fly to either Hiroshima or Nagasaki while waiting for announcements about release dates? At least, you’ll get to see the other side of the story. I guess this is what those two Japanese cities will always be associated with, which is rather unfair because they seem to have more to offer.

[KUMAMOTO] One of Japan's Three Famous Castles

At least according to Wikitravel. They list the castles of Kumamoto, Nagoya, and Osaka as the country’s most popular. I’ve visited the one in Osaka half a decade ago; Nagoya’s, I’ll see by the end of the month. For now, we launch our daily day trips with the destination nearest to Fukuoka via bullet train. A mere 40-minute ride on the Sakura shinkansen from Hakata, Kumamoto is an easy day trip, and probably a necessity if you want to maximize your JR Kyushu pass, since the Sakura is just one of only two bullet trains you can ride for free with that pass.

[FUKUOKA] Welcome Back to Japan

I was granted a multiple entry Japanese visa in March 2020, a week or two before the pandemic lockdown began. I haven’t really used it since then. Japan was just overshadowed by other destinations post-pandemic. It’s not until I scored cheap RT Cebupacific tickets that I decided maybe it’s time to go back to the land of the rising sun. After all, how long has it been since the last time? Half a decade? And so we fly, but not to Tokyo or Osaka. This time around, we will be exploring the south.

Secret Invasion - Episode 6

6. Home
Armed with a vial containing the Harvest, Fury heads to New Skrullos to settle the score with Gravik once and for all, but the radiation levels prove to be a real challenge. Meanwhile, Sonya flies back to London to confront the Skrull pretending to be Rhodey who almost convinces Ritson to start a war with Russia. Fury shows up in the ensuing shoot-out, revealing that the other Fury in New Skrullos is actually G’iah in disguise. Both she and Gravik are caught inside the machine and consequently receive the combo of powers of almost everyone involved in the Battle of Earth. The two duke it out until G’iah gains the upper hand and deals a fatal blow in the form of a cosmic beam through Gravik’s chest. In the end, there can only be one Super Skrull after all. She is recruited by Sonya with the promise of mutual protection for both their species. Vara decides to join Fury on his trip back to SWORD, their first project being the discussion of a truce with the Kree.
