Ben Flies to Amsterdam for Free!

Congratulations to Ben Epstein, the winner of the lucky draw at Fukuoka Now’s “Now Lounge Valentine’s Party” on Feb. 8. He won a round-trip ticket on Air France / KLM between Fukuoka and Amsterdam. KLM, which launches a new non-stop service three times a week between the cities generously provided this grand prize. Read more about the new route on their website here.

Ben’s originally from Seattle but has been in Kyushu for the past two years, working in the U.S. Navy down in Sasebo. Ben has travelled all over Japan but says he likes Fukuoka the best by far, and he’s a regular at Fukuoka Now parties. Ben says he’s elated to be the winner! He didn’t believe it was true when he first received the email. “I’m thankful for the opportunity to visit Amsterdam – it will be my first time in Europe.”
