Now Reports

January 2018 Fukuoka Now

This month’s issue is special in more ways than one. For one, there’s an extra four pages of contents, it’s the last of the year, and it marks the beginning of Fukuoka Now’s 20th year! Yup, two decades of introducing readers to the best of the city in English and other languages! This month it is with great pleasure to introduce a new farm-to-table restaurant in Fukutsu (Munakata) that also serves amazing Napoli-style pizza – Aputec Cafe + Flego. Spicy noodle lovers must check out Hakata Tantanmen Toriden inside Fukuoka Parco in Tenjin, while those looking for a fun bar with organic wines and snacks will want to visit Mashica. Akasaka Sabo is a new and stylish cafe on Meiji-dori – be sure to try the soba with eggs and bacon. As usual we have plenty of well-selected events to keep you busy. So pick a hard copy, visit our website, or download the PDF and enjoy Fukuoka!
