Barbequeued Eels in Yanagawa

September 1, 2006

Yanagawa is a city in the southern part of Fukuoka Prefecture. We drove there to sample the local speciality – barbequeued eels.

(Actually, I don’t know for sure that they are “barbequeued”, but they taste like it. Perhaps with more of a smoky flavour.) They’re served in a wooden box, on a bed of rice, with thinly sliced omelette on top.

Aside from the eels, Yanagawa is famous for its 470km of canals. We had planned to take a tour on one of the donkobune canal boats, but found that we didn’t have enough time. Maybe next time…
