Gracing this month’s cover are five shrine maidens at Hakozaki Shrine. In their hands are chanpon, glass toy-like instruments that makes a fun popping sound when blown into. That can be purchased at Fukuoka’s biggest autumn festival, Hojoya. Looking for authentic Neapolitan pizza? Read up L’Antica Pizzeria da Michele and check it out! For ramen, Fukuoka Now staff are now big fans of Isshin Furan in Daimyo. Read and find out why! And for craft beer, Fukuoka Craft just opened in Daimyo and also offers tasty Mexican grilled foods. For a quiet and sophisticated space with a million-dollar view, Sabo Warabino is the spot, and worth the 45-minute drive from the city center. For a relaxing day in the countryside while experiencing authentic Japanese culture, food, and festivals, join our bus tour to Yame, the tea country on Sep. 24.
