    Fukuoka, with its neighborhoods around Hakata Station, Tenshin, and Nakasu is an enjoyable shopping spot with plenty of food stalls lining the streets. Easily accessible by subway or taxi, it’s an evening out you are sure to remember especially if you make your way to one of the outdoor food stalls. These moving restaurants pop up along town at night and those along the river, in the Nakasu district are especially unique. Ramen and oden, yakitori and other street food is available here. Businessmen as well as tourists stop in for a quick meal and a drink. A very casual scene, it’s best to ask for prices before you order. Menus in English, Korean, and Chinese are available at many of these stalls. For specific suggestions and recommendations click on Fukuoka: A City to Encounter Wine.
