Fukuoka is one of the most international cities in Japan, with access by road, rail, sea, and air. The city provides quite the spread of accommodation for foreigners and Japanese alike, from traditional ryokan to the new shared economy with Airbnb.

Airbnb

Currently, there are a few hundred options for travelers seeking a warm bed in Hakata. Most of these are 1-bedroom or studio apartments within budget travelers’ means, with an average night of 7500 yen.

Ryokan

As a modern Japanese city, Fukuoka doesn’t have many options in the way of tatami mat rooms in ryokan, at least close to Tenjin and Nakasu. If any travelers are seeking a night on a futon, Yamamoto Ryokan is one of the few choices, with rooms starting at 5000 yen without meals.

Dormitory

One of the newer hostels in Hakata, Takataniya brings international visitors together for only 3000 yen/night in a dorm bed. Like many facilities in Japan, only cash is accepted.accommodation, hotel, hostel, inn, internet cafe, fukuoka, hakata, guesthouse, capsule, ryokan, airbnb

Hotels

One of the advantages of being the home to a variety of international businesses is the demand it creates from foreign travelers who want familiar brand names when they sleep. As such, the 4-star Grand Hyatt is a mere stone’s throw from Fukuoka Station, as is a Crowne Plaza and Hotel Nikko.

Capsule

Greenland Espa, the closest capsule hotel to Hakata Station, may have closed its doors, but there are other options for those seeking budget accommodation and a true Japanese experience for the night. If you’re traveling light and not seeking more than a bath and place to rest your head – and possibly a massage – capsule hotels provide a relaxing stay at a reasonable price. Check out Welby Fukuoka near Canal City, or Well Cabin in Nakasu.accommodation, hotel, hostel, inn, internet cafe, fukuoka, hakata, guesthouse, capsule, ryokan, airbnb

Internet Cafe
Although it may not be the most popular option when searching for a place to sleep, there’s no denying finding a spot on the floor of an Internet café is an aspect of traveling in Japan. As one of the cheapest and most readily available forms of accommodation, Internet cafes offer patrons unlimited ice cream, drinks (non-alcoholic), and manga. Cybac is well-known national chain present in Fukuoka.
