A yatai is a small, mobile food stall typically selling ramen, yakitori or oden. The name literally means "shop stand." The stall is set up in the early evening on sidewalks and removed late at night or in the early morning hours. Beer, sake and shochu are usually available. A salaryman might relax with colleagues over dinner and drinks at a yatai on his way home from work. Fukuoka is well known in Japan for keeping the yatai tradition alive.
