Yamanaka is a Fukuoka-based chain which adds a modern twist to one of Japan’s most traditional dishes. The interior of the Honten (main) branch in the city’s Chuo Ward is instantly recognisable as a sushi restaurant, with its long counter and white-garbed chefs expertly preparing your meal.
The restaurant’s simplistic and modern décor mirrors the food: high quality, and with few extravagant additions - just the bare essentials and nothing to tarnish either the taste or the atmosphere.
Yamanaka boasts five locations throughout Fukuoka, including a stall at the JR station so that you can get a great take-out lunch for your journey, but the Honten branch remains the group’s most striking.
Sitting at one of the counter stools is highly recommended, as you can watch your meal as it is freshly prepared.
