Italian Bakery La Spiga

W

ith nearly 20 original focaccia and other Italian bread sandwiches, deciding what to have at La Spiga is no easy task. On this visit, we chose the ham and tomato. The simple combination of juicy ham and tomatoes on crunchy rosetta was the perfect companion to a cup of Segafredo coffee in the cozy, sunlit shop. For dessert, we had Sicilian cannoli—they don’t inject the delicious cream filling made from

cream cheese, chocolate and orange peels until you place your order. The European style interior evokes the feeling of having breakfast in an Italian hotel. La Spiga has around 60 kinds of bread to choose from, including fruit danishes, fresh vegetable quiches and biscotti. The owner, Hiroko Suenaga, worked in a famous local bakery for nine years and began to wonder if she could go solo. She consulted with her boss, Adolf Sailer, and

WHAT’S WITH THAT? READERS SPEAK OUT!

Shhh…we’re on a bus! Dena-Kae Ferguson, Jamaica, Teacher

J

apanese buses are mobile libraries. Of course, there aren’t any shelves of books. But they are ridiculously quiet. Everyone either speaks in hushed tones or not at all. And you dare not breathe too loudly lest you disturb the peace and quiet. (That is unless you are on a bus filled with school children…but that is entirely another matter!) Don’t jangle your keys. Don’t shuffle about. Most importantly, do not use your cell phone; not even for texting, according to some old ladies. I was “strongly urged” by an older lady that my cell phone needed to be completely off, and, indeed, she was obliged to turn it off for me. Yes. The hallowed space that is a Nishitetsu bus will not be desecrated by your noise and or text messages!

Why is it so deafeningly quiet on buses here in Japan? The buses I am used to back in the west are loud, late and loathsome. I don’t miss them at all. But, often I find it uncomfortably quiet on the buses here. I ride four buses a day, five days a week. That is about two hours of quiet time for me for five days of the week. There are the intermittent announcements that, rather than provide information, are more like chimes on a meditation soundtrack. I just can’t conceive what it’s like being a bus driver. Unless you’re a loner and enjoy long quiet drives (or a parent with many noisy children), then that’s a serious amount of silence for any person to sanely endure for hours at a time. Imagine my surprise when one of the silent brothers of the Nishitetsu fraternity

spoke to me. I was settling in to my afternoon meditation a la Nishitetsu bus when I heard what sounded like yelling over the intercom. It was even more disconcerting because I was the only passenger on the bus and I’m a foreigner. My initial thoughts were, “ I have inadvertently desecrated the hallowed halls of the Nishitetsu bus, and now I have to bear the consequences.” I responded politely and waited to hear my charges read out (over the intercom, of course). “Where are you from?” was what came out (in Japanese). Really? The silence had driven this dear man to the edge. He couldn’t stand it! He had to speak to someone. I obliged. We carried on friendly banter until… someone else boarded the bus. Then we were thrust back into silence and solitude, never to speak again. We both assumed these unwritten roles (silent driver; silent commuter) as if it were scripted in some grand Japanese play. The question remains- why? Why am I made to feel completely disrespectful if I carry on a conversation on the bus? Why did this friendly bus driver seem to altogether

forget my existence in an instant to maintain the silence? It must be noted that the Japanese are not a particularly rowdy crowd. Fukuoka is not like Kingston or New York where you hear music bumping on street corners everywhere and public buses are anything but quiet. But, just plain silence? On more than one occasion I have watched some poor old man frantically search for his screaming cell phone he forgot to, or simply didn't know how to, put on manner mode. Perhaps within the term “manner mode” lies the answers to my questions; manners. Is it really just an issue of minding your manners? No one really needs to hear details about your monotonous job or your raunchy weekend plans. Worst yet, nary a soul needs to hear any of the nonsensical gibberish that young people are obsessed with these days. That ride on the bus is your time to relax a bit and enjoy a quiet moment with yourself, albeit on a public bus, filled with people, but, who are, no doubt, doing the same. Countless epiphanies have befallen me on those silent bus rides. They range from major insights on

life decisions to what I like to call “lesser epiphanies”, like what to make for dinner. However, more often than not, the silence simply lulls me to sleep, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. But, really, can we please lighten up a tad on the buses? I don’t want to feel like the scourge of Japanese society for rummaging through my abyss of a bag for my house keys. And as for my bus driver friend, did we ever speak again? Unfortunately, we haven’t been alone on the bus since that chance encounter but whenever he passes me on the street I get a toot and a wave. I wave back and silently wish for the day we can break the rules again! I’m sure he feels the same. Shhh…

Jean-Paul Wuyts

A

trained Japanologist specializing in International Politics and Economics of Japan - Jean-Paul Wuyts (known as J.P) is not your average foreigner in Japan. Hailing from a small town in Belgium, J.P came to Fukuoka twelve years ago in 2001 to complete his postgraduate degree at Kyushu University, and never left! His time at Kyudai was followed by a ten-year stint working at a Fukuoka-based company providing automatic parking lot maintenance. After ten years, J.P was ready to tackle a new career in Japan. His native-level Japanese skills (one of six languages he speaks), together with a decade of customer service and management experience made him an attractive asset. When he was selected to join Fukuoka’s Apple Store in Tenjin, J.P started as a Specialist after which he took on his current role as Support Leader on the Floor. Nowadays, J.P cooperates with a team of Japanese and foreign Apple Store staff and enjoys both the challenges and freedoms that come with the territory. In his spare time he continues his Japanese studies and plays some social futsal. Following his own mantra to “dream big”, he recognizes the importance of setting long-term goals, and has many big plans in store for the future. Read the full interview with J.P on our website.

• Be responsible for your trash. Remember to include gomi (rubbish) bags in your picnic basket to dispose of napkins, paper plates and cans.

T

he blossoming of sakura (cherry blossoms), is an occasion for celebration all over Japan. Between late March and early April families, friends and colleagues come together for hanami or “blossom-viewing” parties, picnicking, drinking and even singing karaoke in the city’s public parks beneath the riotous pink blossoms. 2013 SAKURA FORECAST (as of Feb. 20) In Fukuoka, sakura will begin to bloom on March 23, two days later than average and four days earlier than last year. Full bloom is expected on March 31. Check for updates: http://sakura.weathermap.jp HANAMI HOW-TO Once you’ve picked your blossom-viewing spot, it’s time to prepare your hanami picnic. We recommend gathering a big group

Maizuru Park 1,000 trees of friends and dividing items to bring, so you don’t forget or double up on anything! TIPS • Reserve your spot Spread a ground sheet to “book” your spot. It’s necessary if you want to secure the perfect spot in a popular park. • Bring warm clothes. Once the warm midday sun starts to fade, it becomes cold, very quickly. Bring an extra jacket to last through the afternoon to evening. • Bring entertainment. A good hanami party lasts all day, so be prepared with books, magazines, iPod dock & speakers, playing cards, or even a guitar! • Plan your food. Stray from conbini snacks and opt for sakura-themed bento boxes from department stores or something homemade. Don’t forget the sake!

FUKUOKA SAKURA SPOTS 2013 To help you and your friends find a place to enjoy the hanami season, we’ve made an online map of locations in Fukuoka known for nice sakura trees. We have over 50 sakura locations to choose from, plus a shortlist of 10 spots where you can’t go wrong. Access: www.fukuoka-now.com/sakura2013 Mt. Aburayama Citizens’ Forest 2,000 trees

FUKUOKA CITY BULLETIN SELECTED NEWS TOPICS BY FUKUOKA NOW FROM FUKUOKA CITYʼS SHISEI DAYORI

◊ Japan's Longest TransSea Pedestrian Bridge to Open Aitaka Bridge, a recreational pedestrian bridge connecting Kashii, Higashi-ku with Island City is set to open on Mar. 3 (Sun). At 430 m in length and with four rest points, the bridge over the Mishima Strait lets walkers leisurely enjoy nature's beauty. Once open, it will be part of 3 km of walking paths along the coast and around Island City.

◊ Watch Out for Yellow Sand... While the time of its arrival differs from year to year, yellow sand has been recorded in Fukuoka between February and late May. City Hall is now offering three-day yellow sand forecasts on its website and via the disaster prevention info-mail service. The forecasts are accompanied by recommended actions, and residents are asked to refer to these before going outside or hanging out laundry.

◊ ...and Photochemical Oxidants, Too! Concentrations of photochemical oxidants are at their highest between April and September. If levels rise to the point of potentially affecting human health, City Hall will issue warnings for Eastern (Higashi

and Hakata Wards), Central (Chuo, Minami and Jonan Wards) and Western (Sawara and Nishi Wards) Fukuoka on TV, radio and its website. Please refrain from going outdoors when warnings are in effect. Residents are also asked to limit their driving to help keep photochemical oxidant levels down.

◊ New No Parking Zones for Bicycles Starting this fiscal year, new bicycle no parking zones will be established around Gion Station, Canal City and Gofukumachi Station, and the zone around Hakata Station will be adjusted. The City designates bicycle no parking zones in high traffic sections of town and monitors the bike lots in these areas. Illegally parked bicycles are removed regularly, and in some

cases, on the same day. Please be sure park your bicycle in a designated lot.

◊ Moving Soon? Don't Forget the Trash Burnable trash is collected twice a week, and non-burnable trash is collected once a month. You must apply in advance to dispose of oversized trash. Call the Oversized Trash Center (092-731-1153) to check fees, dropoff locations and collection dates. Trash is typically collected about one week after application. The City does not collect air conditioners, TVs, refrigerators, freezers, washing machines or dryers. Please contact Best Denki Customer Support Fukuoka (092651-9161) to discard these items. To recycle a PC, please contact the manufacturer.

YIPEE! FOR FREE! Aitaka Bridge Opening Event After the Aitaka Bridge ribboncutting ceremony on Mar. 3, you are invited to walk the 3 km of paths around Mishima Strait. Walkers are asked to gather at
