Yatai Food Stalls of Fukuoka

Yatai are small food stalls selling a variety of delicious Japanese street food including Ramen, Oden and Yakitori. They were once popular throughout Japan but are nowadays more prevalent in the city of Fukuoka. One of the most popular places to eat Yatai food is along the Naka river where the photos shown here were taken. Perhaps the best way to enjoy Yatai is to move from one cart to the other for a chance to sample a diversity of Japanese delicacies.

Great Sushi in Kanazawa (kanazawa-tamazushi)

Japanese are masters at the art of preparing dishes made of raw fish. Sushi, the most popular of those dishes, is prepared and served with utmost care at this small but comfortable sushi restaurant of Kanazawa. Kanazawa-tamazushi (玉寿司総本店) is located to the south-west of Kanazawa castle and Kenroku-en garden in an area featuring many hotels and restaurants. It is not necessarily foreigner-friendly as the entrance nor the menu make use of English so I would recommend this place to the more adventurous looking for the true Japanese sushi experience.

Kamiya Bar

Kamiya bar is located in Tokyo’s famous historical district of Asakusa. It is famously knows in Tokyo for the unique drink it serves: “Denki Bran”. Denki Bran is a mix of brandy-like alcohol but the exact receipy, however, is a well guarded secret. The best way to enjoy Denki Bran is to drink it in between two glasses of beer I was told. Of course, one liter beer glasses are available. Kamiya bar also serves food that do a good job at accompanying the drinks.
