Furansu Kashi 16-ku
This beautiful little patisserie, located down a quiet street in Yakuin (a cultural hotspot in the city with many shops and restaurants), is truly representative of the on-going love story between France and Japan. Established in 1981 by Japanese chef Takao Mishima, this café is most famous for its dacquoise biscuits. The light, macaron-esque treat filled with frangipane, was invented by Mishima when he was working in Paris, and is well known across Japan as a symbol of Fukuoka. Sample some in the café (¥400 (£3.10) for two), or try one of the seasonal pastries.
