Arriving at the popular shopping area for Fukuoka, Tenjin district.
Just a short 10 minutes walk from Hakata station is the Hotel Dormy Inn Premium.
Business hotel set up with all the usual amenities.
Clean and decent room though it was a little small ( but typical Japanese business hotel size)
For some odd reason, the hotel which was full of guests had a really small dining area so you can check if the onsen bath area and the dining area for breakfast is crowded or not.
Surprisngly that Kyushu was much cooler compared to the really hot Tokyo. (summer this year was really odd)
Exploring the finer foods on Western Japan.
Excited with this food adventure for today.
Sashimi was just like a piece of art.
Tuna was so fresh that it looks almost translucent.
Delicious grilled egg plant, one side was marinated with Miso and one side was walnut with miso.
Hotate (scallop) tempura……so good!
Chawa Mushi was like 700JPY for one cup, I didn’t understand why did it have to be so expensive and ordered one to check it out.
No wonder, the egg mixture was steamed to the perfect timing. The ingredients inside even had fish inside!

On our way back to our hotel, passed by Ichiran main shop in Hakata…….
Night view of Hakata.
Hakata is famous for their Yatai food (屋台) which is like our night market food.
These food stalls are randomly found on some streets of Hakata. You would be spoiled for choices.
The trick to eating in Yatai is to eat slowly as the customer turn away is supposed to be fast. You would be asked/hinted to leave once you are done with your food soooooooooo just make sure you have some food so they can’t chase it away.
Famous Hakata Pork soup ramen. Not to miss would be fish roe and chicken motsu hot pot (innards)
contrast of the neons lights from flashy commercials vs the reality of life to fill up your empty stomach.
