Fukuoka Castle Cherry Blossom FestivalRead Later
Every year a grand cherry blossom festival is held in Fukuoka City’s Maizuru Park, where around 1000 cherry trees bloom beautifully in the spring.
Fukuoka Castle, with a history of over 400 years, also stands in the park’s grounds. (The castle is sometimes also referred to as Maizuru Castle.)
During the cherry blossom festival, the park is packed with people coming to look at the flowers, all the way into the night!
This time, I’ll be introducing a popular shop in Fukuoka that specializes in taiyaki, “Hakata Hiiragi.”
It’s 1 minute on foot from Akasaka Station.
Taiyaki is a sweet baked good made of dough that is filled and then cooked in a mold the shape of a sea bream (“tai” in Japanese).
The filling is typically sweet red bean paste.
Suzukake is a famous long-standing Japanese sweets shop in Fukuoka. It has five locations in Fukuoka, as well as one in each Nagoya and Tokyo.I hope you can come to see the seasonally-changing artful Japanese sweets in the shop’s display window for yourself!
Hakata Station in Fukuoka is surrounded by a variety of facilities, like the Hakata Bus Terminal, JR Hakata City, Hakata Hankyu, and KITTE Hakata Marui, so people in the area can enjoy shopping and eating gourmet foods all day long!
This time, I’ll be introducing you to the American pancake restaurant, “Original Pancake House,” located in KITTE Hakata Marui! Their “Dutch Baby,” listed on their menu board, is always a hit!
The only three locations in Japan are in Tokyo, and only one of those is in Hakata.
I found a chic-looking seafood restaurant near Nishitetsu Fukuoka Station.
Its name is Uochu. It is a seafood restaurant opened in 2015 by the Tanakada Group, a set of Fukuoka restaurants specializing in Japanese food.
No gourmet-food-lover in Fukuoka doesn’t know about the Tanakada Group.
“Yuraku” is a famous katsudon restaurant in one of Fukuoka’s residential areas.
Katsudon is a dish in which fried pork cutlet is put on top of a bowl of rice along with onions and eggs cooked down in a special broth.
Today we'd like to introduce you to Bean's Cafe, a waffle & pancake house located in Fukuoka's popular Nishijin area.
