Mojiko, north of Fukuoka in Kyusyu, is the birthplace of ‘banana no tatakiuri’ (a seller who sells bananas at a greatly reduced price with a showy performance).
In the end of Meiji era, Mojiko was the port at the beginning of the train line.
So lot of bananas came from Taiwan and went to Kobe through Mojiko.
The bananas that got too ripe before going to Kobe had to be sold quickly in Mojiko.
So banana no tatakiuri began there.
