  • In the national residence of Hizen was deliberately eating breakfast to yobuko. Yobuko still open by the arrival of about nine o'clock in the morning (11 a.m. and open thing), walking, fishing and hunting for souvenirs, big catch flag flown looking squid dishes! The front of fishing, from the morning of "how original" to. Around a lavish platter menu, we ordered how squid and rice dumpling to go ink dumplings. How is a fresh, soft and gentle taste. This great breakfast! From Karatsu near compact city, so great care. Enjoy a refreshing breakfast relax time!

  • Many of the shops here are in the morning and are closed at noon, so it is best to fight for time. It is also possible to see the sun squid fish, which may be due to the seasonal relationship. There are a lot of squid fish products sold, and that is, eat the roast seafood.

  • Squid is irresistible. Morning 1 itself is small, but you can buy things cheaper. The last year has also repeated this year. It is fresh wakame seaweed and small fishes. Women who are hard sells because I buy them.

  • Many local food, processed seafood, and snack that you can eat right away. There is a shop selling fishcake donut and squid deep fried balls, worth trying. And a food truck selling squid burger. Even fresh sea urchin, salty but tasty.
  • Really need to reach there early. I reached there at 11am and Eventhough the market closes at 12noon, there are only very few shops, stalls that are open. A bit disappointing as it was a long drive from Fukuoka.
  • 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).
