October 2019 Fukuoka Now

Boom! It’s here! Rugby World Cup has come to Fukuoka and so will tens of thousands of visitors, and so it’s our pleasure to present an extra-thick 70-page edition of Fukuoka Now! Naturally, on the cover, we have some rugby. It’s a shot of Canada vs. Italy from 2015. The same two teams play in the first match in Fukuoka. Then the feature delves into Fukuoka’s relationship to the sport, and practical information for spectators going to the stadium or public viewing spots. Many visitors will want to try Fukuoka’s famous tonkotsu ramen during their stay, so we’ve prepared THE definitive guide. Kyushu is also ground zero for shochu. Shochu expert Stephen Lyman will bring you up to speed and guide you to some favorite spots. Lots of food and drink introductions as usual – in fact, we’ve updated our database with 140 places just for Rugby World Cup! Check out our special website for all this and more, and enjoy rugby and Fukuoka!
