Nakasu and stalls
Nakasu is the best-known entertainment spot in Kyushu, where many people flock every night. The area developed around the sandbank of the Nakagawa River, and neon signs shining along the river liven up the night of Hakata. The many food stands attract not only local citizens but also many visitors from across and beyond Japan, serving as a place of wide exchange. These stalls provide the famous tonkotsu ramen (pork bone broth ramen) as well as grilled chicken, oden, tempura, and French and Italian food, forever continuing on a path of evolution.
