Welcome to Fukuoka, the Heart of Kyushu Island and Western Japan!
This studio apartment is centrally located in Fukuoka’s chic gourmet dining district of Sakurazaka/Kego, with Tenjin and Daimyo shopping areas just short walks away. Akasaka subway station (10 minute walk from apartment) provides easy access to Hakata Central Station (8 minutes) and Fukuoka Airport (14 minutes); and there are bus stops on nearby Keyaki-dori, famous for small shops and rows of stately Japanese zelkova trees.
Sakurazaka or ‘Cherry Tree Slope’ is a popular residential district, surrounded by abundant greenery, including Ohori Park, Minami-Koen Park and the municipal zoo and botanical gardens. The building fronts onto a narrow street lined with bars, restaurants, and traditional Japanese shops selling fresh fish (you can buy sashimi to take back to the room), rice, tea and fresh vegetables. The 1st floor is occupied by a Japanese restaurant well known for its excellent and inexpensive cuisine. A 24 hour supermarket is located two doors down, and there are 4 convenience stores just around the corner. This is a great location for experiencing firsthand the rhythms of everyday life in Fukuoka, a vibrant, energetic international city with abundant natural and cultural attractions.

Michi was the best host! She was really nice and helpful and got back to us straight away. She allowed us to pick up her bikes earlier and made a booking at the Kirin Beer Park for us.
The place was as advertised, very clean and comfortable. Had a fan and aircon which was great in the humidity. Also has a little balcony to dry your washing.
In good position to cool areas, Michi gave great recommendations of places to eat and see.
Best airbnb by far in Japan, mostly because Michi was so genuine in helping us and getting to know us.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at urban nest. The location is central: walking distance to major and more unique smaller shopping streets, great food can be found within a 5min radius around the place, and there's a park nearby too! The place is neat, well maintained and clean. And Michi was wonderful. She made sure that we had everything we needed and were comfortable.
Michi and Maki are super nice. I was given recommendations not just on Fukuoka but also places they know about in places I was about to visit. The apartment is decent size, is in a convenient location, and super clean. Plus the AC blows cold and the bed is comfy! I highly recommend staying here if you are coming through Fukuoka. Thanks for everything!
What a lovely apartment! Seriously the cutest one I got in all the 5 weeks I stayed in Japan. Located in a quiet neighbourhood, with a 24hrs supermarket just in front of the door.
You will find a cozy, clean room with a comfortable double bed, a kitchen that provides you with everything you wish for (salt, pepper, oil, coffee machine etc.), a nice bathroom and tons of books and planning helpers.
The pocket wi-fi was really fast and the host did his best to make our stay pleasant!
The only letdown was when we found out that there was no elevator, while the apartment is located in the 5F. Carrying our huge luggage upstairs was a pain in the ass.
I would recommend everyone to stay in this cozy nest! :)
They are very good host.
I want to meet them again.
A studio, as promised, in the middle of the city. It was short walking distance to a couple of great neighborhoods, and a subway station. In addition, there are a couple of neat restaurants right outside the front door.
The apartment is cosy, clean and convenient. It takes only around 10 mins walk to the Akasaka station. The instruction provided in the website is very accurate that it is extremely easy for us to find the place. Michi is very nice and has provided us with much useful information to go to different places in Fukuoka.

About the Host, Michi And Maki
Welcome to Fukuoka!
We've traveled to over 30 countries together. We used airbnb for our travels for the past couple of the years and it has been a great experience for us, we wanted to be part of it!
I grew up in Japan and California. Maki is a Fukuoka native. We are both involved with the art scene here in Fukuoka. We enjoy art, city cycling, travel, nature, exploring, vintage things, good food...
Fukuoka is a beautiful city and we would love to recommend our favorite spots!
