Bitter Chocolate Kit Kats

These are very good! They taste like they have mashed up cookies in the outer chocolate covering.

Tideland Yoka Park

I have to say that Tideland Yoka Park is one nice park!
If you know a slide enthusiast, bring them here! There is an impressive double drop slide, a coiled snake slide, and a couple other ones.
It was very hot the day we went. Luckily, there is a wading pool that was perfect to cool down in.
These are called free-fall slides here and for good reason. This slide is the first double drop I have seen since Yaejima Park on Okinawa. Yaejima was the start of our park obsession here in Japan!
This slide is a miniature version of the one at Oonoyama Park in Naha, Okinawa.

There were two sides to the pool. One side is 20 centimeters and the other side is 40 centimeters.
They had several interesting pieces of equipment that I had never seen before. That one kind of bounced on either side.

Fukudomi My Land Park

Welcome to Fukudomi My Land Park in the Saga Prefecture. It featured the playground in the foreground and the 7-story tower in the background.
That's the view looking North if I remember correctly. There were free binoculars on either side of the seventh floor.
Looking down at the playground from the 7th floor.

Kitagata Shikinooka Park

Back to Kyushu....
Meh... Not much of a park, but if you are in Kitagata and lost, stop by!.
If you really want directions here, just head to the old Kawago's Great Camphor tree and follow signs to Kitagata Shikinooka Park.

It is a well maintained park. There was a team of women working on the grass when we arrived and there were fresh wooden planks in the park.

In case you fall through...
