Fujiyoshi (藤よし) is a long-established yakitori shop located in Nishi-Nakasu (home to some of Fukuoka’s best restaurants) that provides nothing but the best in savory chicken skewers. They offer rare parts of the chicken not available at other shops at surprisingly affordable prices. Their lunch sets (available 11:30 a.m.-2:00 p.m.) provide a sampling of some of their best items at low prices (around 750 yen), and their evening prices are surprisingly affordable.
Their tsukune (Japanese-style meatball) skewers are to die for, and the bara (beef, vegetables and konjac) and kashiwa (white chicken meat) skewers are also very tasty. They even offer peta, which is — guess what? — chicken butt!
Fujiyoshi is 5-6 min. on foot from exit 6 of Tenjin-minami Station (Nanakuma Subway Line), 6-7 min. on foot from exit 1 of Nakasu-Kawabata Station (Kuko Subway Line, Hakozaki Subway Line) and exit 16 of Tenjin Station (Kuko Subway Line), and 10–12 min. on foot from Nishitetsu Fukuoka (Tenjin) Station (Nishitetsu Tenjin-Omuta Line). They are open from 11:30 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and 4:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. (closed on Sundays).
