Full description
Within 24 hours after booking, receive a short questionnaire about your personality and interests. Based on your responses, be assigned a like-minded host. Your host will communicate with you directly to suggest an itinerary to help you discover what makes the city so unique. You will also agree on a meeting time and place. Your itinerary is flexible, so during the experience, you can always change your mind about what you want to do.

During the tour, sample 6-8 tastings of various local food, and wash it down with 2 drinks that have been carefully selected for you by your host. Explore a fresh food market like the Rabbit Food Market or get a taste of coastal produce by sampling local dishes at the Yanagibashi Rengo Market. Order traditional dishes from local restaurants or explore some fine dining in Fukuoka. 

Alternatively, allow your local host to take you to the nearest yatai - unique to Fukuoka. These tiny, movable street food carts open into little pop-up restaurants and are known to serve the best street eats around. Of course, try Hakata ramen (silky pork bone broth and thin noodles). Next, follow your host as they lead you through the maze of streets and take you to a restaurant they know you’ll love.

Try the local seafood dishes whilst here; the Genkai Sea, which hugs Hakata Bay, is teeming with mackerel and locals love to eat this delicious fish raw! You could end off your foodie-adventure with a warm coffee at Manu Coffee while you explore all the city has to offer.
