  2. Hi….

    Glad to have stumbled on your blog. My husband and I are coming to Fukuoka and Nagasaki for a week towards the end of October and your articles have been really useful, especially the food ones cos we love Japanese food.

    I was wondering if you are familiar with the Catholic churches in Fukuoka. My husband and I need to attend mass as we'll be there on a weekend. We've trawled the net for mass times (preferably in English) but to no avail. Can you help?

  3. Hi Joyce and Teddy, thanks for visiting our blog.

    As a mater of fact I am familiar with Catholic churches in Fukuoka. There is an English mass in Daimyo Catholic church in the Daimyo area of Fukuoka City every Sunday at 4:00p.m. The closest subway station is Tenjin. Its a 5 minute walk from there. It is right in front of Nishitetsu Grand Hotel. Here is a link to the location of the hotel, its right in front of it.

    Here is the contact info of the Church:
