Yatai-ed in Fukuoka

To say that my blood curdled at the memory of being fleeced at the Yatai Stalls in Fukuoka’s Nakasu area, I think, may be a bit of an understatement.

In all fairness, we knew what we were going to pay. But this injustice that is self-declared lies in not knowing what to expect – though we should know better because all good things come in small packages in Japan. 4 slim pieces of BBQ beef for what is equivalent to approximately S$30 – I could get me a nice juicy steak!

They really should have pictures. We should have been better prepared going to a touristy outlet.

But still, it was an experience, a nice one by the riverside – though it’s probably also one that I am unlikely to repeat if another opportunity comes up.
