As soon as I arrived in Fukuoka, I had to get to the Korean Consulate to drop off my visa application. They had just closed for lunch so I walked across the street to Hawks Town Mall, a new-ish shopping complex near the Yahoo! Japan Dome. I grabbed a quick bite to eat and tried desperately to avoid the adorable boutiques, as I knew I had no room in my already overweight suitcase. Wandering aimlessly, I found myself in an arcade. It must be noted here that Japanese arcades are of a totally different caliber than their Western counterparts. They are not just an outlet of entertainment here. Instead, they are a way of life.
