There are not many rooms in Zen Oyado Nishitei and location is nicely hidden but same time close to everything. Room itself was traditional japanese, beautiful but functional. We had a best dinner in Fukuoka in here. Some of the staff didn't talk too much english but we managed just smoothly.

I only stayed one night over the weekend, but now I wish I stayed here my entire trip. Traditional Japanese house that is beautiful and clean. The traditional breakfast was also amazing and for people who have not traveled Japan it is hard to find a real japanese breakfast. This is not located in the heart of Tenjin but fukuoka...

My husband and I recently visited Fukuoka for several days and stayed at Zen Oyado Nishitei-- we absolutely loved it! It was a meaningful trip for so many reasons (my husband's family is from there and this was his first opportunity to visit Japan) and staying here made it even more special. The Ryokan's owner and staff are incredibly generous,...

We wanted to experience a Ryokan during our quick stay in Fukuoka and found this traditional guest house using Trip Advisor. It did not disappoint! The response is quick via email, and we fully understand why the rooms do not have their individual toilets as these are not the usual arrangements in a Japanese house. Make sure you book the...

It is situated in a residential area but is within walking distance from Tenjin (nice 20 mins leisure walk). The building/room is in a traditional style. The place is cozy and well maintained. The stairs can be a little steep and may not be suitable for elderly. However,there is a room on the first floor. We enjoyed our 2 nights...

We had an excellent experience. The room was cosy. Breakfast and dinner were fantastic. The hosts were very hospitable and helpful. Location was pretty good. Less than 15 mins taxi ride to the airport or the Hakata station. Otherwise, it's near enough to walk to Canal City or you can take a short bus ride.

We stayed a few days at Zen Oyado Nishitei. This was our first visit to Fukuoka. We flew into Hakata, took the subway to the train station in town, then a bus to the main street nearby.

A fantastic place, a little gem hidden in the concrete of Fukuoka mid town. Great hospitality of the host, this is a pure concentrate of Japan traditional ryokan, just on a smaller scale.

This was our second visit to the Zen Nishitei Oyada and it did not disappoint. Ms. Seiko was so gracious again and the full breakfast was just lovely.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Come to rest in our tiny yet superb Japanese Ryokan. One the first floor is our auberge restaurant where we serve our guests an originally cooked full course dinner. On the 2nd floor are our 5 guest rooms. Our Japanese style hotel has no private bathrooms nor toilets. It has been remodeled in 2004, but we kept the original style. This may be limiting, but we believe this keeps the spirit of a traditional Japanese ryokan.We are not perfect at speaking English, but we know about great service. Please enjoy this unique hotel and relax. Our staff is devoted to your needs.Enjoy a traditional Japanese breakfast prepared by the Okami herself in secluded dining rooms while enjoying the view of our Japanese garden. ... more   less
