Wonderful News for Visitors to Fukuoka and Saga!!

Have you seen the “MICHELIN GUIDE Fukuoka/Saga 2014- Special Edition” that's been trending recently?
The “MICHELIN GUIDE Fukuoka/Saga 2014- Special Edition” introduces the very best restaurants and hotels in Fukuoka and is now being made into an English language online website available from September 9 (Tue) at 10am. The site will be accessible from all over the world.
Starting from “CROSS ROAD FUKUOKA” and “Yoka Navi web”, the site is accessible from asianbeat's English website banner links at the top of the homepage.

Let's get to it and check out the English version of the “MICHELIN GUIDE Fukuoka/Saga 2014- Special Edition”. To start off, click the “Restaurant” icon to see a list of restaurants located in Fukuoka Prefecture arranged in alphabetical order. Next to them you will see some cute little symbols. The mark that resembles a flower shows what is known as a “Michelin Star”. If a restaurant has three stars then it means it offers a preeminent experience and is worth planning a trip just for the dining experience.

The MICHELIN GUIDE also features information on hotels and ryokans (traditional Japanese inns). The book has its origins in France and was created in 1900 by the Michelin brothers, famous for tire manufacturing, when they were looking for practical information on dining and lodging while traveling by car. The book's sales exploded. Right, so that's where the name comes from.
If you take a closer look at the English website you'll see it's not just restaurant reviews, information such as how comfortable the facilities are and miscellaneous extras are also featured. Before this I thought that “In the Michelin Guide” equaled “out of reach high class restaurant” but I was surprised to see my local curry house featured! I was genuinely touched by how the reviewers had come all the way to my little town.

Recently I have really noticed how Fukuoka and Saga are becoming accepted as areas with delicious cuisine not only inside Japan but also abroad. The English language version of the site includes an extremely useful glossary to explain the various foods of Japan. With the “MICHELIN GUIDE Fukuoka/Saga 2014- Special Edition” fully up and running, Fukuoka and Saga can start vigorously appealing tourists visiting from abroad. In expectation of the increasing numbers of visitors, Japan needs to start honing its "O-MO-TE-NA-SHI"(hospitality) skills ready for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. (Editorial Dep't.: Yamashita)
