Visit the harbor of Shimafunakoshi in Itoshima for this fun winter barbecue experience. You’ll see here aerial views of the harbor, mountainous terrain, and oyster farms out at sea. Watch the oysters come in by boat and go right over to the kakigoya, or oyster huts, large seasonal restaurant tents right at the waterfront. Thirty minutes from Fukuoka City, thousands come here on weekends during the oyster season (November to March) for the scenery and fresh seafood. Expect crowds, so make a reservation or hang out in the harbor while you’re waiting. The huts close by about 3 pm.
