The Hakata yatai food hopping experience was amazing. This tour, led by Bruce, was a true immersion into Fukuoka’s vibrant street food culture. Bruce’s deep connections with the local yatai vendors and his intricate knowledge of each stall’s specialty dishes made this experience unforgettable. This tour is a must-do for anyone visiting Fukuoka. It’s more than just a food tour; it’s an intimate exploration of a unique cultural tradition, expertly navigated by Bruce. His recommendations were spot on, and his enthusiasm was contagious. I left with a full stomach, new friends, and a deep appreciation for Fukuoka’s yatai scene. If you’re looking for an unforgettable culinary adventure, look no further. Thank you, Bruce and the Hakata Foodie team for an incredible night of food and fun!

The food was delicious, I loved the handwritten menu and overall attention to detail from the restaurant owner and staff. And, I was very impressed with the vegan menu. We did a lot of activities, and it finished at 3PM, giving plenty of time to enjoy the rest of the day.

My night being led by Omoriさん was nothing short of amazing. He showed us a diverse variety of Japanese alcohol while giving us the history of nearby landmarks. It was beyond interesting and he was very knowledgeable. Where his knowledge really shined was his knowledge of western culture. I was surprised to hear him sing songs at the karaoke bar that even I had trouble with. He bridged the gap between western and Japanese culture with ease. I will book this tour again next time I visit Japan. 5/5. Thanks again!!!
