Food & Drink


To stand out amongst the countless number of seafood restaurants in Fukuoka and still remain reasonably priced, you have to be extra special. Isoragi, located inside Kooten on the ninth floor of JR Hakata City, delivers that “extra special” in the form of delicate details, full flavors and with comfort in a simplistic modern Japanese ambiance. Most patrons go to enjoy their kaisendon (rice bowl with seafood toppings) or their ochazuke (the same with fish broth poured on top). Ordered as a set you get appetizers, soup, dessert and tea. The most popular set is the Isoragi Kaisendon which includes a colorful selection of uni, ikura, ebi, made, rotate, anago, salmon, and more on a bed of warm rice. Enjoy fish freshly caught in the waters off Kyushu including the Magurodon Set made with Pacific bluefin tuna, and the Hakata Kaisendon Set made with Japanese amberjack and horse mackerel. Add a dash of soy sauce or Isoragi’s original sesame sauce. Most restaurants slice the fish, whereas Isoragi chops the seafood into small cubes which makes the seafood easier to eat and glimmer like jewels! Mixed sets, with two smaller bowls for donburi and ochazuke, are available. Splendid presentation, friendly service and fabulous flavors not only satisfy locals but will deeply impress visitors to Fukuoka. Ask for a window seat for a sparkling city view!
