'Tour d' Excitebike'

What do you do when you have more copies of Excitebike than you can possibly play? If you're the guy behind, you take them on a tour of Fukuoka, Japan.

Here, for instance, five Excitebike cartridges climb the walls of Fukuoka Castle:

And here the carts enjoy the views (and vessels) of what I believe is Hakata Bay:

Many more photos from this so-called "Tour d' Excitebike"--along with quite a bit of information about Fukuoka--can be found here.

Thanks! That is, indeed, Hakata Bay!

You're welcome, Sean! I just had to mention it here, as I thought it was too cute/funny -- as well as educational and interesting. Oh, and thanks for letting me know that it was indeed Hakata Bay!

That's kind of adorable.

It is, isn't it? If you're at all interested in the Famicom (and Japan), it's a great blog :)

Thank you. "Adorable" is what I was going for:)
