July 2019 Fukuoka Now

This issue we dive into summer with an introduction and guide to Fukuoka’s best-known festival, Hakata Gion Yamakasa. Use the map on page 22 to find a good spot to watch the spectacle. Summer means swimming pools, yukata and summer’s champagne parties – and we’ve got all the deets on all of those too. Where to eat and drink? For a fabulous izakaya experience check out Kajishika, for a refreshing drink in Nishi-nakasu try Okuto, for a coffee and beer – where else than “Coffee and Beer” in Kamigofuku-machi, and for udon this month is a pioneer of the udon bar movement, Niwakaya Chosuke. Out in Itoshima, da Porto serves fantastic lunches with a view of the sea looking back at the city, and we also introduce the new Itoshima Sunset Beer Bus Tour. As always, check out our website for seasonal guides, including a Beach Guide and Fireworks Guide, and tons of events. Enjoy summer!
