Fukuoka #5.6

So we walked towards this tourist attraction, near Canal City Hakata. Also known to be the ‘Newton’ of Hakata, where the whole lane is filled with street side stalls selling variations of yakitoris and other cooked food. Nakasu, (中州)、literally meaning “sandbank,” Nakasu is Kyushu’s largest entertainment district.We walked a while before settling down . It was a good experience but we felt like it was such a tourist trap – we probably were overcharged for food that we could get at cheaper and better prices.

Mixed Oden

Gyoza

Assorted Yakitori as arranged by the waiter

I must admit, I do love how they incoporate mochi into the oden – although I dont think my family thoroughly enjoyed eating mochi in salty based soups.

6 min from Hakata to Tenjin Station by subway.  

Because they were so unsatisfied with this meal, we walked on and we saw MOS burger! so all the hungry ones ordered drinks and a burger to share

Yakiniku rice burger

Needless to say, it tastes so awesome in its own country!!! If only we all settled for Mos Burger instead -_-

we were making our way back and we saw how pretty the lightings were to celebrate such a festive and big event in Japan! Despite all that had happened earlier on in the year, they push forward their celebration perhaps as a form of encouragement and way to make the environment less tense and send ‘genki-ness’ across the state.
