Strong points: Traditional Japanese sushi inside fish monger’s shop
One interesting destination in Fukuoka City is a market called Yanagibashi Rengo Ichiba/Yanagi Bridge Cooperative Market near Yanagi Bridge in Chuo Ku.
This is real local and traditional, almost a time-slip into japan of yore.
Go there for lunch.
Yoshida Fishmonger (吉田鮮魚店) is a small two storey-shop but easy to find thanks to the queue of local and foreign customers who are waiting to climb the stairs to the second floor where dishes ordered on the first floor can be enjoyed
The food is cheap and authentic.
Just forget the old setting and try to imagine yourself in a different era!
The prices are really good!
No wonder there were so many Chinese and Taiwanese customers!
The above is a mixed raw fish donburi!
Mentaiko/spicy cod roe and deep-fried fugu/globe fish, both Fukuoka City specialties!
The sushi set was really reasonable: 1340 yen for 10 nigiri!
When you think it included urchin and salmon roe, it would be difficult to imagine such prices in Tokyo or Kyoto, or even in Osaka!
And the local squid/ika was top-class!
Worth looking for!
Great value and authentic!
