Akari is only 2 short stops on the tram from the station and a 2 minute walk. Helpful English speaking staff when we arrived. They have so much useful info on the surrounding area and hostel suggestions across Japan. We also loved their cartoon style city map. It includes everything and everywhere you need to know about the old town,... More

The certificates on the wall show that this was once one of the best guest houses in Japan. Sadly that is no longer the case. The dorm rooms are too crowded, and too warm (and I was visiting in early April). The toilets and shower facilities seem to be in need for renovation, and the whole hostel seems a bit... More

We stayed here for three nights in the 8-bed mixed dorm. The location is good. It's a 15 min walk from the train station or 2 stops on the tram and a 2 minute walk which is super easy. The tram system is very efficient and it's very easy to get to all the sites. It's also on the Nagashima-Gawa... More

I stayed in a 4-bed mixed dorm on the 4th floor. Beds were very comfortable with thick duvets, and I loved the tatami mats on the floor. The beds each had a private lamp and a personal locker just outside. As a mixed dorm, beds could have done with a curtain. Also the communal sinks were right outside our door,... More

Stayed in a private room with private toilet and bathroom (approx 1.5x2m). Uncomfortable mattress and place is pretty old. Towel for rent YEN100 and shower amenities can be bought at reception. Free wifi only in living room and free use of computers. Friendly staff but once checked out, you are not allowed to enter the building at all, not even... More

My girlfriend & I really enjoyed our stay here. Upon arrival the owner of the hostel welcomed us, showed us all of the facilities, recommended where to go and how to get there, and gave us a discount card for the city's main attractions (50% off most of what the city has to offer for tourists). The hostel itself is... More

we stayed a couple of nights at Akari, the couple who own it are incredibly nice, and very helpful. The hostel is covered with information on things to do and they are very happy to help. The double room was huge for japanese standards and clean. It was a great place to stay.

Room: Mixed dormitory with a shared bathroom and shower. I found the location to be very convenient. The main train station can also be reached in about 15 minutes on foot, and there is a tram stop very close by. I was staying at Akari during the Lantern Festival, and the festival events and attractions could be easily reached on... More

We stayed here for 5 nights towards the end of a four week trip to Japan, and I have to say it's quite possibly the friendliest experience I've had in a hostel anywhere in the world. From the moment we checked in all of the staff were genuinely welcoming and hospitable, we soon found out it's a family run business... More

Good place to spend a night. A bit far from the train station, but there's an easy access by tram. Booked a single room, which turned out to be quite spacious with comfy bed and private bathroom. Basically, it's everything I was looking for in a budget hostel. Room itself was a bit worn out, but clean and tidy, so... More
