This was a horrible, shocking experience. This was one of my last nights in Japan, and I had no experience anywhere near to this anywhere else. The building itself is old. That’s fine, and they’ve clearly done renovations in some areas to make it nicer. But my room, room 5 … you’re in trouble if you’re given that one! First,... More

Most of it stated in other reviews. Great feeling of 'old Japan' and sure it could be refurbished and all the little things modernized, but then you would lose the character of the place. Just loads of interesting things within close walking distance. Very good value. I wasn't so keen on the food offered, but I guess it was authentic... More

The atmosphere is nice, with traditional Japanese style. Furnish is old but still feel cool to stay in. The weak point is, there're only 2 shower rooms (which open 24 hours) & 2 toilets found on ground floor (didn't go to 2nd floor to check). It is a bit inconvenience in wake up hours. The floor squeaks when the ppl... More

Pretty easy to find; a 10 minutes walk from Hakata railroad station and only 3 underground station away from Fukuoka airport. Although I am starting to concider myself too old for hostels and guesthouses, I did enjoy our stay at this one. The shared bath facilities were adequate with sit-down showers and a large heated tub. Some off the toilets... More

This is an interesting place to stay. It is a traditional Japanese hotel (Ryokan). The house is old and made of wood. It makes a noise as you walk in the house. Toilets and bathrooms are shared, which imposes no specific problems: they are kept clean. A room is small but adequate. Sure you can enjoy an aspect of Japanese... More

From outside, this inn (the oldest in the city, or so we were told) is indeed dashing. And while it has a great "traditional" atmosphere indoors, the rooms do look their age, and one had better not have neighbours with noisy children: the walls are paper-thin! (we had to start humming — very ominously — the Chinese national anthem in... More

If you google the ryokan, you'll see it is on a japanese registry for historical value since it is around 100 years old. My room had a little table, tv, futon, fridge and an enclosed balcony overlooking the traditional garden. Has a vending machine in the lobby. Close to a family mart, gion subway station, shrines, and canal city. Has... More

While I was in Japan I stayed in everything from hotels to hostels, and the Ryokan was by far the best experience while I was in Japan. If you are looking for the traditional Japanese experience, a Ryokan is the place to go. As for this particular Ryokan my friend and I had a great experience. Service/Staff- There was friendly...

We stayed 3 nights with our 2 kids in this ryokan, one of the 3 ryokans booked on our travel in Japan. Indeed it was the less comfortable one BUT you can feel like staying in an old castle at the time of samurai,... Wood floors cracking in this old house with long corridors, little inner garden, quite an atmosphere...... More

Comfortable rooms with great character. The rooms have a small table and chairs overlooking an authentic Japanese garden. Our room smelled a bit funny, and there are shared bathrooms and toilets, but overall a comfortable place to stay. Helpful staff. 10 minutes walking distance to restaurants, Canal City, bars and shops in Fukuoka. Close to train station also.
