Just try, not for dinner.

It is a night life for visitor, a must try, but please don't be a dinner, as it is expensive than modern restaurant. In Fukuoka, many dinner place better than food stalls.

Yatai (food stalls) are possibly Fukuoka city's best known symbol. I would recommend to try at least once if you haven't, just for the sake of experience - sitting in a cramp stall side by side with strangers whom you may call friends after a drink or two, watching the owner preparing your food, eating like a Japanese in an...

I recall in the Japanese TV dramas when I was young--people go in a very small space, eating hot ramen on a freezing night, chatting with the one sitting next to you, drinking sake and laughing hard... I have always wanted to try this and now I finally know this is the authentic Yatai dining, most famous in Fukuoka. Although... More

Yes they are street stalls but the food preparation is very unsanitary and there is nothing special with their taste.

It was an interesting experience. The food was hot and good but it was too expensive for just bites. Try it just for experience.

My family and I went to the Yatai Food Stalls on a Friday in Spring 2017. The weather was nice, but there were still few people. A lot of people (locals and tourists) were not eating but were just taking pictures. The food was not great and quite expensive. Also, expect to be in very cramped seats when the shop... More

We visited the Yatai in Nakashugawabata. It is easy to find if you have an idea of the location but we were led to the place by some locals. There were around less than 20 Yatais the night we visited. We did not eat at the Yatai as there was no space to place our bags.

Went to two different yatai and had oden, yaki tori, and ramen. The oden was not worth it. The yaki tori and ramen were good. Pricey but good, especially the yaki tori. The ramen, although we enjoyed it, i think for the price you might as well go to ramen stadium. What I did see was a lot of the... More
