Fukuoka Advise


This info is for Fukuoka :
Alternative accommodation options:
There are not too many active couchsurf- host around in Fukuoka so the chances are there you can't find a couch to stay. But don't worry there are other options. For male travelers I would suggest a capsul-hotel. There is one near Canal-city ( Hakata) that cost 3800 a night ( sauna included!)
Both male and female can stay in Cybac internet cafe. I think this is a real good deal you have your own little cubicle with a sofa and you get blankets, you can use the internet all night long and you have unlimited use of the drink-bar. All is 1980 Yen.
Or this Kaine hotel is supposed to be good: http://www.kaine-g.com/
