January 2017 Fukuoka Now

The January issue of Fukuoka Now is out now and is packed with all the usual restaurant reviews, event listings and new spots in town. If you’re starting to feel the winter cold, go no further than Hakata Hiiragi, which serves up some of the best taiyaki (fish-shaped pastries) in town. Similarly, enjoy a glass of the finest shochu at Bar Sunkujira, it’ll warm you to the core. In search of some new year style? In our main feature this month, we introduce Kurume kasuri, a fiendishly intricate fabric that has been made in Kyushu since the 17th century and is used to create stunning garments in blue and white. No New Year’s Plans? Then read our feature introducing several Hatsumode spots around the city – places to celebrate the new year – accompanied by a handy guide on Japanese prayer protocol. Pick up a copy of January’s Fukuoka Now at over 500 locations across the city or read it online here. From all the staff at Fukuoka Now, we hope you have a very merry Christmas and a wonderful start to the New Year.
