KAMADO JINJA SHRINE For over 1,350 years, people have been coming to Kamado Jinja Shrine on Mt. Homan to pray to the god of en-musubi (roughly, “matchmaking”) for good relationships, romantic or otherwise. In 2012, the juyosho (shrine office) was renovated—juxtaposing modern design with ancient tradition. On the observation deck, you can sit in Jasper Morrison-designed chairs as you take in vistas of Dazaifu. Why not pick up some stylish ofuda and omamori (good luck charms)? This shrine is a 40-minute walk or 10-minute local bus ride from Dazaifu Station.

저희는 후쿠오카 나우입니다! 후쿠오카를 잘 아는 편집의 프로들이 모여 후쿠오카의 생생한 정보를 1998년부터 제공해 왔습니다. 더 많은 정보는 웹사이트에서 확인하세요! fukuoka-now.com

이달의 후쿠오카

KONOTORI Ramen soup comes in many flavors, from pork bone and soy sauce to miso and seafood, but one flavor that has recently come into vogue is tori­paitan, or chicken broth. Tori­p aitan is a rich, milky white broth made from whole chickens and chicken bones which are stewed for 8~10 hours until the soup reaches a porridge-­like consistency. You can choose from three types of noodles: tori­paitan soba (mellow broth, ¥650), noko tori­paitan soba (rich broth, ¥700) or noko tori tsuke­men (rich broth with noodles served on the side for dipping, ¥750). Enjoy the tsukemen with flat noodles, and the soba with chijire (curly noodles). Flavor your dish with either salt or soy sauce, and then garnish it with green onions and bamboo shoots, or, if you want the full poultry experience, chicken meatballs or chicken char siu. Or how about an egg boiled in Japanese dashi (¥100)? Don’t forget to purchase your tickets from the vending machine in advance - the staff can help you.

TEPPANYAKI MITAKI

T

eppanyaki Mitaki takes its name from an old inn in Hiroshima, one which used to host shogi and go tournaments back in the day. This restaurant, located in a renovated house in upscale Sakurazaka, features a counter overlooking a small garden as well as private rooms; but you'll want a counter seat for the “teppanyaki show.” As the chefs deftly prepare locally sourced veggies and Kyushu beef on the gleaming griddle, savor the mouth-­ watering aromas and the sound of sizzling beef. Why not enjoy a drink as you wait for your elegantly presented meal to be brought your way? If you want to enjoy steak the Japanese way, we suggest wasabi and soy sauce. Place a dash of the green stuff on a bite­-sized morsel of steak, dip in soy sauce and voilà: Japanese teppanyaki! And nothing ends a Japanese meal better than rice, so don’t forget to try the garlic rice—it's prepared right on the griddle with garlic, soy sauce, and any juices remaining from your delectable meal.

鉄板焼 Mitaki

鐵板燒 Mitaki 最初為昭和初期位於廣島的豪 邸,後來成為曾舉辦將棋及圍棋大賽而聞名 的料亭「三瀧莊」;如今繼承這個老字號的精 神,在櫻坂個人宅邸的改裝後誕生了。推薦 選擇坐在吧檯的位置,享受當地產的鮮蔬及 來自九州的和牛,被令人垂涎的香氣還有鐵 板上牛肉滋滋作響的聲音所籠罩的鐵板燒秀。 在日本吃鐵板燒牛排時搭配的芥末醬油,把 一口量的牛肉上放一點芥末,沾取醬油後再 放入口中,讓和牛柔軟、豐富的味道配上醬 油及芥末的清爽鹹香,混成富有層次的美味; 最後再由殘留肉香的鐵板上加入大量蒜頭及 醬油,炒成的蒜味飯來作結束,是您絕不可 錯過的一品!

철판구이 미타키

한적한 주택가에 위치한 철판구이집 미타키. 히로시마에 위치한 같은 이름의 한 유명 여관의 브랜드를 계승하여 사쿠라자카에 있는 개인 저택을 개조한 후 자리 잡게 되었다. 철판을 둘 러 싼 카 운 터 석 과 테 이 블 석이 준 비 되 어 있는데 그중에서도 철판구이 쇼를 볼 수 있는 카운터석을 추천한다. 자리에 앉아 음료로 목을 축이며 천천히 철판구이의 세계로 빠져보자. 번쩍번쩍 빛나는 철판 위에서 셰프의 화려한 손놀림에 맞춰 신선한 채소와 큐슈산 소고기가 고소한 향기를 풍기며 입맛을 돋운다. 맛있게 구워지면 잘 드는 칼로 깔끔히 잘라 보기 좋게 담아낸 후 서빙된다. 일본식 철판구이 스테이크는 고추냉이 간장과 잘 어울린다. 한입 크기로 잘려 나오는 스테이크 위에 고추냉이를 소량 얹은 뒤 간장 소스를 살짝 찍어 입으로 가져가면 와규의 부드럽고 풍부한 맛과 고추냉이, 간장의 깔끔한 맛이 어우러지며 진정한 철판구이의 맛을 즐길 수 있다. 일본 요리하면 마지막 코스에서 밥을 빼놓을 수 없다. 고기를 구워낸 철판 위에서 마늘과 간장으로 맛을 내 볶아내는 볶음밥은 철판구이 스테이크의 숨은 주인공이니 꼭 잊지 말고 드셔 보시길 바란다.

STARTUP VISA

Entrepreneurial Incentives for Foreigners in Fukuoka

G

ot a business idea you want to bring to life? Well, starting a business in Fukuoka just got easier, thanks to the new foreigner-friendly Startup Visa. The visa gives entrepreneurs six months to simultaneously begin launching their business and to prepare an application for longer term resident status, such as a Business Manager visa. As one of the National Strategic Special Zone Initiatives, Fukuoka City has been chosen to implement this exciting new visa, giving budding entrepreneurs a great opportunity to kickstart a business. Normally, entrepreneurs require Business Manager resident status to start and operate a business here; but the requirements for that status are demanding. Applicants must already have an office space, and either capital/investments exceeding ¥5,000,000 or at least two full-time staff who are either Japanese nationals, permanent residents, spouses or children of a permanent resident or foreign nationals with certain long-term visas. With a Startup Visa, however, successful applicants receive Business Manager resident status for six months without having to fulfil the requirements listed above. To get the Startup Visa, entrepreneurs submit a New Business Implementation Plan (NBIP). That is reviewed by Fukuoka City Council and, if the plan is deemed viable, a Confirmation Letter of NBIP is issued. With that in hand, the applicants can formally apply for a Startup Visa. Applications must be made in Japanese but in Fukuoka, help is at hand. Tenjin’s Startup Café supports foreign entrepreneurs with the various stages of building a business, and can be utilised by any entrepreneur to ensure the smooth-running of both their venture and their Startup Visa application. When applications opened in early December 2015, Thomas Pouplin and Yasmine Djoudi, the partners behind Ikkai,

Fukuoka Mayor Soichiro Takashima, presents the first applicants for the Startup Visa, Thomas Pouplin and Yasmine Djoudi, with their Confirmation Letters of NBIP.

Confirmation Letters of NBIP. In addition to the Startup Visa, another benefit of Fukuoka City’s National Strategic Special Zone Initiative is the plan to offer a national corporate tax break for startups. Eligible startups in National Strategic Special Zones will qualify for a 20% (approximate) tax benefit (details on the City’s website). Apply for the Startup Visa at the Startup Café, Tsutaya Bookstore 3F, Tenjin. http://bit.ly/startup-visa-fukuoka With such a wealth of resources available an online platform which crowdsources in such a vibrant city, this is all great news everyday tasks to students, were the first for any foreigner keen to start a business to apply. On Jan. 15, they received their in Japan.

FUKUOKA CITY BULLETIN SELECTED NEWS TOPICS BY FUKUOKA NOW FROM FUKUOKA CITY’S SHISEI DAYORI

Mayor Takashima’s New Year’s Pledge

Since ancient times, Fukuoka has been an important gateway between Asia and Japan, but the city’s presence is now stronger than it has ever been. This is due to two reasons: 1) our geographical proximity to the global engines of growth in Asia, and 2) the growing need for a city on the Sea of Japan side of Japan to sustain government functions in the event of a massive earthquake on the Pacific Ocean side, where most of Japan’s urban centers are concentrated. I believe Fukuoka is the only city that fits this bill since it has the lowest disaster risk in Japan, can provide sufficient urban services, and has excellent transportation connections with other parts of Japan and the outside world. While Japan’s population dwindles, Fukuoka’s continues to grow, and opportunities to create an even more vibrant community abound, as evidenced by the redevelopment projects in Tenjin and the Waterfront. As a designated city with prefecture-level authority, Fukuoka must serve as a model of speedy and effective governance, not just for Japan but for the whole world. This year, I look forward to working with you to further elevate Fukuoka’s presence both at home and abroad.

Are You Prepared for Tax Time?

The deadline to file income tax returns for 2015 is Mar. 15, and sole proprietors must pay consumption taxes by Mar. 31. Make sure you file and pay your taxes on time, and contact your nearest tax office if you have questions. You can file your taxes at one of the following filing venues during the designated time frame: Fukuoka/Hakata District: Solaria Stage Bldg. 6F Nishitetsu Hall; West Fukuoka District: Fukuoka Tower Hall; Kashii District: Kashii Tax Office.

95.3% on Opinion Poll Say Fukuoka is “Livable”

Every year, City Hall conducts an opinion poll on city government with 4,500 adults to generate basic data for policymaking. In the June 2015 survey, 2,507 citizens, or 55.7% of the target group, answered the survey. The results of the survey have been compiled into a pamphlet that will be available online, at the Information Plaza (City Hall, 1F), and the Information Corners in each ward office on Feb. 1.

for more information

Fukuoka City Bulletin Fukuoka Shisei Dayori is City Hall’s official magazine published bi-weekly on 1st and 15th of each month 23 times per year. It’s available in Japanese online too. Consider using it for Japanese study! ふくおか市政だより Website: www.city.fukuoka.lg.jp/shisei/kouhou-hodo/shiseidayori

Outdoor Advertising Permits Centralized at City Hall

Starting on Apr. 1, if you would like to apply for an outdoor advertising permit, you will need to visit the City Design Section on the 4th floor of the City Hall main building. To alleviate illegal posting around the city, operations have been streamlined at City Hall; you can no longer file for permits at ward offices. Remember: advertising on signal posts and utility poles is generally prohibited.

Fukuoka Yoruhaku 2016

Fukuoka Yoruhaku (“Night Expo”) 2016 is a series of nighttime events, featuring everything from dining to music, held during the month of February. Other activities include a "stamp rally” and new sake tasting. For details, visit a tourist information center (Hakata Station or Tenjin) or the Information Plaza (City Hall, 1F) to pick up a leaflet.
