Now Reports

May 2018 Fukuoka Now

Before it gets too hot, now is the time to cycle around Itoshima. And to make it even easier, in this issue we introduce an electric-assisted rental bicycle service. Pick one up at the train station and use our guide to visit our recommended shops, cafes and scenic spots. Koyama Parking doesn’t sound like the name of a restaurant – but it’s one of the hottest new izakaya in Fukuoka. For a noodle shop, we take you to Udon Komaru, whose noodles have a firm texture that is addictive, and you can’t beat the price for this quality. Sumiyoshi Shuhan in Hakata Station is both a liquor shop and a bar. Check out their fine selection and try a sip too! Forest Mark Espresso is yet another super cool, high quality specialty coffee shop. It’s located on the 2nd floor, but they have benches on the ground floor outside the street too! We also introduce the Kyushu National Museum – a magnificent facility located just steps from Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine. From May 19 to July 16, they’re hosting the “Buhrle Collection” – a fine and rare collection of some of the world’s most famous impressionist art. And lots more information on events in the area. Dig in!
