Now Reports

December 2017 Fukuoka Now

On this month’s cover we feature the Christmas Market at Hakata Station, which with all of its tasty food and drink booths, is a must-go-to event in Fukuoka. And for a new take on a Fukuoka favorite, motsunabe (tripe hot pot), we recommend the recently opened “Roccasha” in Hakata. They’ve struck a unique balance between classic and modern with some subtle touches that will make you rediscover this winter dish. Meanwhile, “Okido” in Maizuru serves up chewy, Sanuki udon with a bevy of toppings. Drop by “Bar Vita” in Imaizumi any time of day or night and relax in the chic atmosphere with a stiff drink or a hot espresso, and enjoy people-watching from their spacious terrace. On the go? Grab a healthy lunch made with fresh Itoshima veggies at “Sangatsu no Mizu” and try their handmade fruit and herb syrup drinks and wines too. As usual, we introduce plenty of events, so check our website, especially for our Winter Illumination guide, New Year Countdown guide and more! Happy Holidays!
