As many of you predicted following the January release of my Osaka guidebook, I have begun planning and research for my Fukuoka guidebook. It will cover Fukuoka City and nearby destinations (Dazaifu, Yanagawa, Imari, etc.), and since Fukuoka is a famous for its gourmet and sake, it will feature a stronger focus on dining and drinking this time around (including, of course, a ramen guide and a sake (nihonshu) guide). Considering how well my translation work is going (aka uber-busy), the book will probably take quite a bit of time, but rest assured there will be a high-quality English-language Fukuoka guidebook in the not-so-distant future! In the meantime, I will update this blog as much as my schedule permits and continue to bring you useful and interesting information on this city and island that I love.
A special thanks goes out to my regular readers–it’s thanks to you that I have to motivation to take on this new project!
