We have had lots of emails asking where they can watch the World Cup in Fukuoka so we prepared this non-comprehensive list of places that air the game. Drop in a comment if you want to add a place!
- Tel: 092-283-5518
- 5-2-1 4th flr.J-Park Nakasu Bldg, Nakasukawabasa, Hakata, Fukuoka City 810-0801
It is a British Pub so don’t go mentioning the England – U.S.A. if you want good service, but it is in the heart of lively Nakasu-kawabasa so its the perfect place to start your romp around the streets when your favorite team scores a goal.
Bayern Fukuoka (Imagawa)
- Tel: 092-791-7344
- 2-14-3 Imagawa, Chuo-ku, Fukuoka View Larger Map
- Closest Subway Station: Tojinmachi
A destination in itself even when it is not World Cup season, this recently opened sports bar / restaurant / bakery is one of the better places to watch the games in. The bakery opens as early as 7:00 a.m. if you feel like having some great German bread for breakfast or right after that 3:00 a.m. match ends. They have 40 German beers (probably most from the proud Bavarian region) to keep you happy or consoled depending on who you are rooting for.
The Dark Room (Tenjin)
- Tel: 090-9595-2100
- Bachus Kan 802, Oyafuko-dori, Chuo-ku View Larger Map
If you find yourself low on funds for buying too much beer while watching the games, perhaps you should head on to The Dark Room in Oyafuko-dori, where they have a Y2,000 drink-all-you-can (nomihoudai) while watching the games. If the game isn’t as exciting as you thought it was, or if your team is down 5-0, then you can always go to the next room where you can dance the night away. Japan’s best DJs and artists frequent this place so you might just catch them perform.
The Three Kings British Pub (Daimyo)
- Tel: 092-403-3622
- 1F Metropol Bldg., 1-11-22 Daimyo, Chuo-ku, Fukuoka View Larger Map
Yet another British Pub so again, no mention of Robert Green’s goal catching skills. A great selection of British beer awaits you in this authentic British Pub (without the hooligans). They have free wi-fi too if you want to tweet about the goal instantly, or check your Facebook page during half time.
