    Yobuko Morning Market is a good place for those who likes seafood and vegetables. It offers a wide range of many delicacy. In my case I tried 'cassis' ice cream which tasted bit sour like berry while my friend tried the yellow one which is called 'Yuzu' it tasted like lemonade, a good one indeed. This market faces a big body of water so you might as well try and see the 'Nanatsugama'.

    If you want to see local people's living, here is the good place to be. Local people selling live-fish and squid, preserved fish and squid, fresh vegetable. There are also a restaurant where you can order the live-squid and a small shop name 朝一しゅうまい (Asaishi Sumai) selling a Sumai (squid ball).

Where to stay in Karatsu

Many of the accommodations in Karatsu form an orderly line next to the Matsuura River, or along the coast. Things certainly get a little more luxurious by the sea, with rooms offering extensive views along the coast, onsite spas, and fine-dining restaurants, as well as good access to the beach. Look inland towards the main train station for a range of business hotels designed for one-night stays, side-street guesthouses, and the odd hostel.
