JapanCulture•NYC is part of the TV crew for the World Baseball Classic in Japan. The first stop: Fukuoka, where we’re set up in the newly renamed Fukuoka Yafuoku! Dome to broadcast six baseball games featuring Japan, China, Cuba, and Brazil. We’re working hard, but we’re also enjoying the wonderful flavors that this friendly city in Western Japan has to offer. We’ve experienced a wide range of food, from bento box lunches at work to ramen at a yatai, to a little of everything at two amazing izakaya.
