Introducing the lesser-known yet appealing places in Fukuoka is always our pleasure. In this issue, we guide you to three spots you might not have heard of in Nijo, Itoshima. One is even called “The Hideaway,” and it’s the area’s first ocean-view campsite. We know good noodles too, and this month we recommend Mankai’s new shop on Oyafuko-dori, especially their tomato & tonkotsu fusion number. Curious about locally brewed nihonshu? Visit Sake no Kyushu under Hakata Station and for coffee brewed using the nel drip method, Coffee Bimi is the only place to go. Is that a salad or a sample of a salad? Not at The City Bakery in the basement of Solaria Plaza! Their salads are meals onto themselves. And the bread? Mmmmm, some of the best in town. Hojoya, the biggest autumn festival, begins on Sep. 12—don’t miss it and we’ve got deets on that and listings for other events this month in print and even more online. Rugby World Cup is next month—check back for specials!
