Photographer's Note

A view of the Fukuoka Yahoo Dome. The escalotor had unusual coloured advertising panels (Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks). I like the repetition of the red & white flags, which also appear to be a logo for the local baseball team? From wikipedia:

"The Fukuoka Dome (福岡ドーム, Fukuoka Dōmu?) is a baseball field located in Fukuoka, Japan. The stadium serves as the headquarters of the Fukuoka SoftBank Hawks. In 2005, Yahoo! Japan, one of SoftBank's subsidiaries, bought the stadium's naming rights, and thus renamed it Fukuoka Yahoo! Japan Dome.

Built in 1993, the stadium can accommodate 52,000 spectators and was Japan's first dome with a retractable roof.

Famous musicians such as Frank Sinatra, Madonna, Rolling Stones, Eagles, Ayumi Hamasaki, and Billy Joel have done large-scale concerts at the Fukuoka Dome."
