The best private food tours & experiences with locals

Forget the neon-lit nightlife and seaside attractions – if there’s one thing Fukuoka is most famous for, it’s the city’s food scene. Loved across Japan, Fukuoka’s iconic specialties have made a name for themselves in a major way, and you can try every single one of them on Fukuoka food tours with a local guide. Japanese favorites can take a backseat because Fukuoka has its own long list of must-tries unique to the city. From trendy coffee shops serving flannel drop coffee (a local specialty) to ubiquitous yatai street food stalls appearing after sunset, food tours of Fukuoka will not disappoint.

Food-lover’s Fukuoka

Japan is a world culinary capital, so the fact that Fukuoka still stands out is testament to its truly fantastic food. Your local guide has spent years exploring their hometown’s food scene, and they’re eager to share the best of the best with you on the ultimate food tours in Fukuoka. There are so many different ways to experience the city’s culinary culture on Fukuoka food tours, whether you jostle through the crowded lanes of a traditional market, slurp up a bowl of silky ramen at a ten-seater restaurant or sit down for a fancy meal at an upmarket eatery in trendy Tenjin.

The capital of street food

In Fukuoka, the best meals are often eaten standing up. That’s because at 6pm sharp, the city’s famous yatai – mobile street food stalls – magically appear along the neon-lit shores of Nakasu Island. The food found here is so spectacular, you could easily spend your entire Fukuoka food tour just walking up this famous stretch. Try smoky, charcoal-grilled chicken or pork belly yakitori skewers and sesame-marinated mackerel (Fukuoka’s mackerel is so fresh, it’s the only place in the world you can eat it raw!), and wash it all down with smooth sake at a tachinomiya standing bar.

Fueled by ramen

No matter where you are in Japan, you’ll soon realize that one of the most popular meals is the personification of “umami:” rich, smooth, silky Tonkotsu ramen. Did you know that Fukuoka happens to be the birthplace of this iconic dish? This unassuming city has perfected the art of ramen, and Fukuoka food tours are the perfect excuse to indulge. Walking ramen tours in Fukuoka with a local guide let you experience this cuisine in all its forms, from bottomless bowls of noodles (yes, bottomless!) at a hole-in-the-wall eatery loved by locals to ramen tickets purchased from a vending machine!
