Hakata Station in Fukuoka is surrounded by a variety of facilities, like the Hakata Bus Terminal, JR Hakata City, Hakata Hankyu, and KITTE Hakata Marui, so people in the area can enjoy shopping and eating gourmet foods all day long!
This time, I’ll be introducing you to the American pancake restaurant, “Original Pancake House,” located in KITTE Hakata Marui! Their “Dutch Baby,” listed on their menu board, is always a hit!
The only three locations in Japan are in Tokyo, and only one of those is in Hakata.
