Not quite sure what fascinated me most - The Kamikaze Racing or the Spectators
Oct 2019
Discovered by complete accident, as we were wandering around Town after a fruitless visit to the Hakata Port Tower, where the views are legendary (but it was Closed for Major Maintenance Work) when we heard the incredible noise of Power Boats. A quick peek through some barriers revealed we were very close, so we went.

Paid to Enter (Peanuts for a change) and joined the masses upstairs in steep (free) seating. Half the crowd were seated outside and the other half were inside betting. The other half were smoking - actually it could have been two-thirds.

Fast, furious, loud, dangerous, wicked, cool, crazy, brave, nuts & kamikaze all seemed appropriate words to describe the scenes. We saw 2 serious crashed and in 40 minutes, so clearly not a Sport for the faint- hearted.

Boat races are a big thing here in Japan. The boat race facilities in Fukuoka are well-known all over Japan and it's a fun activity to try at least once.
