Yokosuka, Japan – Kanagawa Prefecture Pt.6

We’re not going to make it too easy for you to find but if you can find this sign in downtown Yokosuka, you’ve found a treat indeed.


This 焼き鳥 (yak-key-tor-ry/grilled chicken) stand has been here since my wife has been a child and it is at the top of our list whenever we return to Yokosuka. For her, its sentimental value is priceless.  For me, it’s enjoying something that is precious to her.

Wide shot
This chicken skewer stand is always busy when we visit.

There are no seats and if it’s busy you just wait your turn. You can order a to go box or eat them right there (our preference). It’s a snack stand.

Close up
Cheap eats

Pick a skewer, eat it, place the stick in one of several cups (that are for your used sticks only), and once you’re done bring your cup or your sticks to the cashier to tally you out. It’s cash only and if you want a drink afterwards there’s a vending machine a few steps away.

What you see is what you get.

Love it.
