Now Reports

July 2016 Fukuoka Now

Dig into the biggest issue of Fukuoka Now ever! This bumper issue will be distributed to over 13,000 visitors from overseas attending the 99th Lions Clubs Annual International Convention. Special features include an interview with Koharu, a young, globe-trotting geisha. We also introduce readers to Fukuoka’s favorite fish: saba (mackerel) in all its delectable forms. For places to escape the heat and recharge, try these two cafes: Suzukake Honten, a century-old confectioner offering sweets and tea, or for a perfect cup of drip coffee, visit Tokado Coffee, a world champion coffee roaster’s cafe. Kisoji is our pick for fine soba cuisine, and visit Saison d’Or for mouth-watering high-end Japanese-French fusion. Curious about Fukuoka? We’ve listed up 22 intriguing facts for our Fukuoka Trivia feature. Or learn about local confections available at Maing. Finally, read up on the Yamakasa Festival and download our handy map.
