  • It was a morning market was smaller. Pomelo and squid and was selling fruits, such as sea urchins and seafood dishes. It is regrettable because I couldn't buy life. I bought a akashumay, but not eat space was inconvenient. Go early because the parking lot is not only a few may be better.

  • 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'.
  • My full respect to the ladies working for the market. See what delicious squid we got ( and what became of them)
  • 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).
  • Historical maket. Many local ingredients. They may late to open the shop or skip it. depend on the weather
  • Like a normal morning market, it hasn't muck to offer for a tourist

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.
