Hotels in Kumamoto and Fukuoka

Jump to last reply

It's been a long, long time, fellow Fodorites.

Just getting to some well-overdue Japan planning for our December trip.

Trying to figure out our accomodations for hotels in both Kumamoto and Fukuoka. Both are technical stops. Anyone have any first-hand experience with hotels in either of these places?

For Kumamoto, we'll be coming from Naoshima after a very long train journey and staying literally overnight on our way to Kurokawa Onsen the next day. So realistically all we need is as nice as place as possible (it'll be Christmas Day) to park our butts until we take the train or bus to Kurokawa Onsen the next morning. Have narrowed this option down to the Richmond or the ANA Crowne Plaza.

For Fukuoka, it's also just a technical stop. After Kurokawa, we'll make our way to Fukuoka (assumedly arriving in the afternoon) and then the next morning we fly out of there to Bangkok. Again, not expecting to see or do much there, but just have access to some decent restaurants for dinner that night and maybe somewhere to walk around. Completely in the dark about Fukuoka hotels. They all seem kinda business-y.

Looking forward to your input...and it's great to be back in Fodor Land! ;)
