The people working there are a true gem. Just staying at this Ryokan and meeting the people who work there is worth a detour to Fukuoka if you plan to go only to Tokyo or Osaka. I stayed three nights, enjoyed their Japanese breakfast and had a superb mean one night. Simply loved it!

We stayed on the 13th of March, and had a truly memorable and authentic Japanese experience. The hospitality of all the staff and the owner of this little ryokan is superb and the house is nestled in a quiet neighborhood in the inner city area. The rooms and bathrooms at this guest house are impeccably prepared, clean, and very comfortable....

I stayed one night in February in this traditional ryokan and it was a really great experience. I slept on a futon on the floor (traditional Japanese style), the breakfast was super delicious with some local specialties. All in all it made my stay in Fukuoka perfect.

Omotenashi is hospitality beyond anything expected, and in the essence that is Japan, Zen Oyado Nishitei delivers omotenashi with grace and style. A business acquaintance and I were privileged to stay at this Japanese Inn for 2 nights. From first seeing the sign on the street, the journey begins into Japan's recent past of simplicity, beauty, and courtesy. The walk...

A colleague and I have recently stayed at the Zen Oyado Nishitei, Fukuoka Prefecture. The hotel was recommended to us by a business associate from Fukuoka as providing an authentic Japanese accommodation experience. It was quite remarkable in that the traditional nature of Japanese hospitality has been preserved (with the exception of wifi - used - and in-room television -...

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...

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...

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
