Now Reports

Mar 2016 Fukuoka Now

Here come the girls! March brings Hina Matsuri, known as Girls’ Day; this holiday is observed throughout the country, but Yanagawa is holding over a month of unique, must-see celebrations – check out our guide! Three FN reporters tried out JTB’s new Strawberry Picking and Oyster Hut Day Trip – read all about it! And don’t miss our recommended spots this month: Amaou season is upon us, so enjoy some fresh strawberries and juice at Natural Farm + Cocon. Travel back in time with a visit to Sankaku Ichiba, a 1950s arcade of bars & small restaurants. Try noodles hand-made by a man as dedicated to his udon as a samurai to his sword at Samurai Udon. Have you tried warayaki (fish/meat seared over a straw-burning flame)? If not, then check out Chinza Takibiya, where the friendly chefs serve up mouth-watering seared bonito! And we’ve got a whole host of events for you, plus the city bulletin and our handy map. Read it all here or download the PDF below.
