One of the things you should definitely consider when searching some few good things to do in Fukuoka is trying out their famous line of Japanese street food. Believe it or not, this is not your ordinary street food. Fukuoka Night Street Food or Yatai (in japanese) is something that they are proud of and has been long known for locals (even for tourists) if you want an all straight experience of authentic Japanese dishes.
Located beside the riverbank of Nakasu in the downtown area of the city, your eyes will feast from the long lines of individually owned food stalls. Each stall caters their straight from the pot delicacies. Walking along the street, you can find uniquely constructed booth; a very tiny kitchen surrounded with a rectangular table and small benches. The menu is either written in Japanese characters in a cardboard paper (sorry guys, no English menu in here) or placed just over the roof just so anyone can conveniently choose whichever they fond to order.
Everything is cook impromptu, and with that I mean everything you order is cook right in front of you. Now you can be both entertained and be full too. Although this line of street food are a little bit on a pricier side compared to other type of street food that I know, I must say the quality, the taste and the experience are far all worth the price.
So me and my husband took this another chance to eat to our hearts content during our second time of coming back here. The first time was when I discovered my now all time favorite Oden (a Japanese winter food). Of course, you can never go wrong with a glass of cold beer to toast with for some little celebration for the new life ahead of us!
