Kyushu Regional Cuisines

Minna san,

I'll be heading to Kyushu tomorrow, possibly for a week. Although I've visited Fukuoka before, I'd appreciate a bit of advice about wintertime must-tries anywhere in Kumamoto/Kagoshima/Kitakyushu/Aso/Fukuoka too.

No dietary restrictions, and willing to try anything. Visiting depachika and konbini for "季節限定" products is a priority as well.

Thanks in advance!

When we were there, members of my family who tried it actually liked the horsemeat sashimi which is a Kyushu speciality.

I tried the famous local ramen chain which everyone loves and was not overly impressed, however.

Did you take a look at this site ?


If you drink alcohol, trying shochu should be a must.

In Kagoshima, try kibinago sashimi. Served with sweet miso and citrus.

I've given up looking for a shochu that I genuinely like. Fortunately, Kyushu has nihonshu and beer, some of which is very good indeed.
