Japanese food carts, called Yatai, are one of Hakata's summer night features.
Tenjin or Nakasu Yatai in Hakata are often featured on TV, in magazines, and on the internet.
Not only is Nagahama Ramen very famous, but a wide range of food: such as Oden, Motsunabe, Kushiage, and Tempura can be found at Yatai.

If you wish to taste all the food you want, you should try eating everything little by little.
Be careful, as Yatai price lists are not often displayed and not all Yatai are equal when it comes to cleanliness.
It's also recommended that you find a toilet before eating there.
To find the best Yatai, ask local taxi drivers or hotel receptionists for their recommendations.
