A Fukuoka veteran, I eat out every meal of the day, every day. I'm in the food & beverage business, have many friends and contacts that run, own or operate restaurants of all kinds in the Fukuoka area. My Fukuoka restaurant/bar, Off Broadway, has been welcoming guests for over 25 years. I love to eat out!

I'm a vegan and I can introduce you to some great places off the beaten path. Born in Japan, to an American mother and Japanese father, I have also lived in Israel, Hawaii, Guam, and Okinawa. Settled in the Fukuoka area 9 years ago. My home is now in Fukutsu City, a seaside town not far from Hakata with some amazing hidden gems.

Hakata is one of the best places for a foodie. We have a lot of special foods, drinks, and interesting restaurants here. You will enjoy our city's world-famous fresh seafood, seasonal vegetables and local sake, without relying on a guidebook.
I grew up near Hakata, so I can guide you to wonderful restaurants that local people know. We are very happy to show you around!

嘿，你吃了吗？This Chinese greeting means "Hi, have you eaten?" It's one way to say "How are you?" Personally I love SPICY food the most. I know some very good restaurants here having explored them with friends from Japan and all over the world. I love communication with people from different cultures. Let me show you what's out there in this lovely city!
From the USA
Languages: English & Japanese
After dining my way through 50 countries, I settled down in Fukuoka in 1985 after hearing about it at dinner from one of my guests while guiding for the World Affairs Council in Seattle. Fukuoka is one of the best foodie cities in the world. Locally-sourced ingredients are superb, creative chefs abound, and prices are reasonable. I've been guiding diverse groups ever since I got here, including a special excursion for global entrepreneurs during the recent G20 Economic Summit in Fukuoka.
Languages: Chinese, Japanese & English
Hi, I'm Ling. I travel all around the world for my work and for me, the best food is Japanese. It's like art and the service is great. I really like to eat and I'm available for lunches when you come to town. I will show you the best local, traditional food. I know places that are reasonable and really amazing.
