Hey there, I'm Mark, your local host in Fukuoka! What I adore most about Fukuoka? It's the beautiful balance of yin and yang. You can go from the bustling streets of Tenjin or Hakata to a serene 18th-century Buddhist temple in Gion in just minutes. And, of course, Fukuoka's eateries are a world unto themselves. From a secret Italian gem to that cozy Thai place, I'm your go-to guy. When I'm out and about, I'm a dedicated window shopper, and menu reader. Fukuoka's culinary scene is my playground, and I'm thrilled to share my favorite haunts. As for navigating the city, you could say I'm a bit of an expert. I know Akasaka, Tenjin, Kushida Shrine, and Canal City like the back of my hand. My goal is to ensure your Fukuoka experience is seamless, enjoyable, and stress-free. So, let's embark on this adventure together – you'll see Fukuoka through my eyes!
