Yes, you can find cheap backpackers hotels of a higher level than usual in Shizuoka City! One such place is “Momotaro International House” located about 20 minutes walk straight away from Shizuoka JR Station at the entrance of Sengen Shrine Street. Once you reach the big red torii/sacred gate at the entrance of the main street look for the entrance of the backpackers hotel on the left hand side!


It is a thin tall building whose entrance is clearly marked


That’s the place!
Walk upstairs or use the elevator if your luggage is a bit too heavy


You will find the reception office on the second floor where English-speaking Mrs. Shizuka Nishibata/西畑静佳さん will be waiting for you. Check the many free pamphlets there for an enjoyable stay in Shizuoka City and Prefecture. Don’t hesitate to ask question about the current events and attractions of our region!

Each floor is equipped with a space for drying clothes


A double-bunk bedroom on the Ladies floor
