We tried a historical yatai very near to Hotel Monterey La Soeur in Tenjin (Tenjin Station Exit 1) named koki (小金). The stall-holders are friendly but speak very little English although they did produce an English menu with prices listed. Later, as things got livelier and friendlier, they asked one of their staff who was a Chinese national to speak with us in mandarin, which we understood. This evening became hilarious for us because two different groups of salary-men began talking to us. One group were colleagues from Nishi-tetsu, and another group hailed from Ricoh. The Nishi-tetsu group even invited us to have drinks with them at a nearby hotel! In all our years of visiting Japan on holiday, this was the most remarkably hilarious and friendly experience we have had with local Japanese. We should say that their yaki-ramen, stewed beef tendons, and oden were tasty.
