May 2017 Fukuoka Now

Japanese national holidays including Showa Day, Constitution Memorial Day, Greenery Day and Children’s Day are all lumped near the first week of May and for many it’s truly a Golden Week! The skies are blue and the air is warm and without humidity. Enjoy it while it lasts! Dontaku is the big festival and naturally Fukuoka Now has a guide for you. This month we introduce a great robatayaki-style izakaya and a shochu bar that serves wonderful ramen; or is it a noodle shop that serves splendid shochu? It’s unique. And so is our bar selection, Fructus GS – Ginger Stand which specializes in ginger beverages (with or without alcohol). And for cake connoisseurs we take you to Jacques Ohori, easily one of the finest such shops in all of Kyushu, trust us. Once again we have some pages to remind you about Nishitetsu’s money saving bus and train passes and we have a special introduction to Ippudo’s new standing sake bar. Join us at the first “Sake Sampler Night” on May 26 from 19:00 at Ippudo on Nishi-dori in Fukuoka – of course!
