Now Reports

Apr 2016 Fukuoka Now

Spring has firmly sprung in Fukuoka! In the spirit of celebrating all things fresh and new, we’ve put together Now Trending, a report on some of the hottest trends in Fukuoka. Want to explore outside the city? Take the Flower Viewing and Fruit Picking Day Trip! Visit a flower park, wander the streets of old Yame, try Wagyu or eel for lunch, then go strawberry picking! (Details on p.13). Dip into Japanese subculture with a trip to Sanatorium, a medical clinic-themed cafe which is as cute as it is creepy. Looking for a hanami spot? Visit Nishi Koen to see both sakura and this month’s spot pick, Terumo Jinja Shrine. If you want to try soba made with hand-ground buckwheat, check out Edo Soba Wabisuke. And for sushi prepared by a professional chef who travels overseas introducing Japanese cuisine to the world, check out Sushi Naniwa. Plus the hottest events, the city bulletin and a handy map. Read it all here or download the PDF below.
