It is not the best ramen you can find in the city, but it is a fun experience. We walked along the canal during the day, and there was hardly a trace of the action that would appear that evening. The Yatai stalls are crowded, but don't be put off by the lines, because no one stays long....noodles, beer...done. Worth the visit, even if the locals avoid it.

The yatai stalls are closed. It is in a pretty seedy area anyways. There are better night markets elsewhere (i.e. Taipei).

I love trying local foods everywhere I go and especially in Japan, it’s pretty hard to eat something that doesn’t taste good. I was very very excited to visit this area and it was an awesome experience! It’s very hard to see street food vendors in Japan so I had this marked down as part of the trip schedule. I agree with the other reviews that you need to choose wisely when you go, take a look at the menus, a lot of them have it in different languages. Also part of the charm is being crowded in the little booth with all the other local people and tourists trying things out. I have included photos of the one I went to, whether it was the yakitori or the oden soup, everything was delicious. The only caveat is that you have to order a drink with your food and it’s one order a person. If you are not into loud and crowded spaces this is not for you. I also don’t recommend going for a meal but instead going for a late snack or some beer food. There are couple of areas set up for this so be sure you find the long row and not just the place with a couple of booths. Hopefully this helps, kanbai!

Visited Hakata on 12 Jan 2018. Alighted at Nakasu Kawabata Station and took a walk along the river towards Canal City only to see three stalls of which two were full :(
Made a trip to hakata thinking that this wouldbe the highlight of the trip but to great disappointment. Perhaps the stalls were gone due to winter? Or maybe I just didnt find the right place.

These small “restaurant” stalls are lined along the river and other small side streets of Fukuoka. They are an interesting way to take in the local food scene at night. However, a lot of what is served at each tent is the same and the prices are not cheap. So try to ask a local Japanese for a recommendation. It’s worth a try it once but other reviewers have noted you can find just as good quality at any number of restaurants in town.
