Have you experienced a Japanese summer festival? In this issue, we introduce several. Featured on the cover is the Gokoku Shrine Mitama Matsuri, and there are others throughout the month. Then for a dazzling display of fireworks synchronized to music, don’t miss the Hanabi Fantasia on August 7. For foodies, we introduce the newly opened Hakata Seafood Uoden and in Fukuoka’s eastside, Asunaro Brewery, a new brewpub. Meanwhile, in Shirogane is Dig Inn, a popular take-out bagel sandwich cafe. Also, for those who enjoy noodles for breakfast, Moon Light Noodle opens at 7 am! Isla de Salsa returns to Nokonoshima, and the summer’s climax, Sunset Live takes place in Itoshima on Sep. 7 & 8, and we have a limited number of discounted tickets! Speaking of Itoshima, Analog Craft Chocolate, a bean-to-bar chocolatier just opened. Finally – golf fan or not, consider heading out to Keya Golf Club (8/29 ~ 9/1) for the Rizap KBC Augusta Golf Tournament – just ¥4,000 with all-you-can-eat and drink beer – and free for kids!
