Tensuian Miki: A Solid Izakaya with Excellent Sake


Tensuian Miki (呑酔庵 味季) specializes in mizutaki and other cuisine using fresh, local chicken (including chicken sashimi). The nihonshu (Japanese sake) menu boasts a regularly updated, diverse, fascinating selection of reasonably priced drinks that even connoisseurs can enjoy, and their selection of shochu and other beverages is also quite good. Furthermore, Tensuian offers a plethora of side dishes to savor together with your drinks, such as fresh avocado slices, savory chicken karaage and fresh fish sashimi.

    Going for the 1st time in Japan (21d) and I will stay 4 days in Fukuoka and 6 in Osaka (have the book). All because of you 😀

    I only found a handful of blogs/info about sights other than temples,temples,temples,temples and temples. Fukuoka ? naaah…boring…no first timer goes there. Osaka? nothing to do there, just drop by for the castle and dotombori in the morning. Japan is all about temples,temples and harajuku for first timers. 😀 😀 😀

    Keep up the good work !

    • Good to hear 🙂 Unfortunately, that’s what a lot of the tourist information sources recommend. Hope you enjoy Osaka and Fukuoka, they’re both fun cities!

        Yes, unfortunately there is not a lot of info about Kyushu in English and Osaka is usually ignored because of Kyoto. I can read (some) Japanese but an English well written blog is much easier 😀
        post request: izakaya w/ basashi 😉

      • Unfortunately I don’t have time to write a new post at the moment, but I recommend taking a look at the restaurant Suganoya (菅乃屋) on the 10th floor of JR Hakata City (shopping complex attached to Hakata Station). It is a bit expensive, but they offer genuine Kumamoto basashi. Also, the free rooftop observation deck on Hakata City is nice 🙂

    I just moved to Japan and I”m living in tiny Sasebo. I”m so happy to hear that a 1hr train ride away is wonderful Fukuoka. I look forward to trying your recommendations and hope to find an expat or two. Thanks for writing this great blog.
