And you wouldn't dare insult me, sir,
If Jack were only here.

Due in Fukoaka today. Like so much of Japan, it's undergone a radical makeover in recent years, from mudflat to container port. There was talk of saving some of the mud for a bird sanctuary, but now it seems the more obtrusive issue is dioxin contamination. We'll be looking for (at) Shofuki-ji, Japan's first Zen temple, built in 1195.
