Welcome to Fukuoka, the Heart of Kyushu Island and Western Japan!
This cozy spot, located on the top floor of a four-story building crammed with tiny shops and restaurants, is on a quiet street right in the heart of Daimyo, and is a favorite with artists visiting Fukuoka. You can feel the energy and vibes crackling up from the surrounding blocks. The floor space is limited, but the room is divided into separate kitchen and lounge areas. Guests sleep in an elevated loft accessed by a ladder, providing a unique experience very different from a conventional hotel.
The Daimyo neighborhood is bursting with art and fashion energy, and is the trend setting center of Fukuoka and all of Kyushu. Visitors can browse through a rich assortment of original Japanese boutiques, or shop at major brand stores such as Nike, North Face, Stussy and H&M. The neighborhood is also home to an amazing variety of restaurants, cafes and bars; and countless numbers of little gems waiting to be discovered among the winding streets.
The apartment includes:
-Small lounge area with chairs and a table (nice roof top view!)
-Two single high quality futon mattresses (These can be put together for a couple or separated for friends)
-Kitchen for basic cooking and food preparation
-FREE high speed pocket Wi-Fi (you can also use this outside the building)
-Refrigerator, AC, fan, heater, hair dryer
-Clean sheets and towels
-Unit bath and shower (shampoo, conditioner and body soap provided)
*The ladder to the loft is very high and a bit of a tight squeeze. Physically-challenged guests and those with health or dizziness problems should choose one of our other spots.
*The overall space is limited and might be a bit cramped for guests with lots of heavy luggage.
*NO ELEVATOR stairs to the 4th floor.
Please contact me before making a reservation, or if you have any questions.
Looking forward to seeing you!
Nice & lovely apartment! Clean, well-organised and close to everything. Walking distance to Tenjin. There are many shops, restaurant and convenient stores around the apartment. Michi and Maki were very nice. They provided everything we need ready when we were there such as guidebook, pocket wi-fi, towels, shampoo & conditioner, hair dryer, etc.
It was our best appartment rent in Japan by airbnb. Flat is well designed with beautiful small details. It was very clean and comfortable for a couple. It was nice to be at this flat. It' s in very interesting, artistic area, which we appreciate very much. Michi was always available for contact, he supported us in our trip to Hoshino to see tea gardens. We definately recommend staying at this flat. If we are in Fukuoka again we would very happy if we could stay there once again. Thank you!
Very cosy flat with every detailed little things being taken care of! Perfect for cooking at home. Cheap supermarket and lots of affordable restaurants nearby. Great location as well! I've lived two different places in Fukuoka and this flat is in my fav area! Most importantly the host Michi has been a great help: very responsive and kind. He got a hand-made, detailed, useful information folder that literally explain everything you need to know about living in the city!
Our stay at the Nest was everything we hoped it to be. Michi was a great host and made our check in really easy. She also provided us with loads of information about the area and its best places to eat - we got to experience Fukuoka a bit more like a local! The Nest itself is tiny but has all the amenities you might need during your stay in the city. It's definitely not a flat for the unadventurous, you will have to climb a ladder to get to the bed, and be aware that everything is Japanese sized, tiny but perfectly formed. These were, to us, part of the charm of the place and we hope to come back to it some day when we visit Japan again. We loved it. Thank you Michi and Maki!
너무너무 좋은 곳에서 머무를 수 있어서 좋았습니다. 다이묘가 작은 교토라고 칭해지고 카페거리이다 보니 낮에는 잔잔한 음악에 커피 글라인더 소리가 가득해서 너무너무 좋았어요 ! 주위에 맛집도 많고 늦게까지 하는 곳도 많아서 짧은 1박2일 일정에 딱 맞는 집이였습니다 :-) 로프트가 좀 높아서 한번 누우면 화장실가기가 귀찮지만ㅋㅋ 그래도 너무 행복한 여정이였습니다 ! 집에 잠깐있더라도 여유를 느끼고 싶은 분들 추천합니다 !

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!
