Roppokan Ryokan

Roppokan Ryokan is not luxury, but very cozy, tranquil, and comfortable.  There are many return guests all year round.  If you are in Fukuoka, I really think you should stay here.  Perhaps, if you are looking for rooms with nice outdoor private hot springs, I would highly recommend staying at Roppokan Ryokan.  The spring quality is amazing, thick, creamy, and moist.  You may become a hot spring freak.  Once we arrived at the property, the staff served Japanese sweets with green tea.  We felt relaxed in the lobby while viewing peaceful mountains and rivers in good weather.  The property would be great for couples, families, or small groups, but not solo travelers.  The ambiance is serene, family-oriented, and friendly.  If you are going to stay here, I would highly recommend booking a room with a private hot spring on a high floor possible.  We fully enjoyed our private hot springs and tranquil rural landscapes.  Rooms without private hot springs wouldn’t be special.  Also, if you don’t want to sleep on Japanese-style mattresses in tatami rooms, you may want to book a room with twin beds on tatami mats.  The decor is Japan minimalistic but truly relaxed.  The housekeeping was excellent.  Facilities tend to be bit worn-out, though.  The Free Wi-Fi reception was good.  All of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, yukatas, pajamas, Japanese sweets, and green tea bags, etc.  Room service is not available.  There is no convenience store nearby.  You may want to buy your necessities before coming here.  Then Roppokan Ryokan is a perfect universal design.  There are some rooms for wheelchair users.  Wheelchairs are available for borrowing.  If you bring people with weak feet, you may want to inform the staff in advance as they can arrange a room near the lift.  Then there are wonderful outdoor and indoor communal hot springs.  All of them are open from 5:00 to 25:00.  If you have tattoos, you may not be permitted to use the communal bathing area.  You may want to book a room with a private hot spring.  Then this is child-friendly.  Staff can provide meals, baby baths, and strollers if you request in advance.  Then the local food experience for dinner was nice, but it wouldn’t be special.  The portion tends to be small.  Dinner starts from 18:00, 18:30, or 19:00.  Dinner is served in a private room or dining area.  It depends on which room you book.  If you request dinner served in your room, you need to inform the staff in advance.  Then western Japanese buffet-style breakfast was wonderful.  Breakfast time is between 7:30-9:00.  Basically, breakfast is served in a dining area.  *Please note that inform the staff when you book a room with meals if you have any food allergies.  They probably wouldn’t be able to prepare alternative food if you request on that day.  Then, as far as I know, there is no nice restaurant around the property.  You may want to book a room with meals.  Then the staff tends to be friendly, but not sophisticated.  This is Fukuoka prefecture.  I guess it’s OK.  Overall, the property has great value for money.  If you want to enjoy hot spring ryokans in Fukuoka, you should stay here.  Access to the property wouldn’t be easy, but free shuttle service is available from Chikugo-Yoshii Station or Haki Bus Stop.  You need to book it in advance.  It takes 60min from Hakata Station.  At last, the property is popular among local people.  If you want to chill out here in a tranquil atmosphere, you may want to avoid staying during Lunar New Year, late April to early May, weekend of Oct and Nov, and the end of the year and New Year holiday.  Have a nice trip!  Welcome to receive any questions about Roppokan Ryokan from the below space.  *All information is as of the date that I posted on my blog.  **Check-in and out times 3:00 PM/10:00 AM Check Availability and Pricing for Roppokan Ryokan on Agoda
