Hostels in Fukuoka
Fukuoka, the capital of Fukuoka prefecture on Kyushu island, has been listed time and again as one of the top cities in the world to live in and travel, to, largely owing these distinctions the vibrant cultural life of the city and its extensive public transportation facilities. Fukuoka has several hostels to make your stay more enjoyable and affordable. The city hosts several large events annually. The Yamakasa festival takes place during July. For two-weeks, events and trial runs will focus on the final day's festivities, which features teams of men dressed in traditional loin cloths and carrying huge floats around a course. Yamakasa draws a crowd of onlookers in the tens of thousands, though it barely begins to compare with Hakata Dontaku, which takes place during the Golden Week of Japanese holidays. This festival brings millions of people to downtown Fukuoka, where multiple stages are used for a variety of traditional shows and music. Besides the city's festivals, there are many museums dedicated to the art and history of the region. The city provides public transportation by high speed rail line and ferry, if you need to travel elsewhere in the region, as well as a network of trains, buses and subway lines for easy travel from your hostel to the rest of the city.
Affordable hostels are available for your vacation to Fukuoka!
A cheap hostel can help free up funds to spend on other important things, but vacancies in the city's hostels may be hard to find during these events. Transportation by auto may also be difficult. While you'll find all these sites easy to access via public transit from a local hostel, there is another inexpensive option for lodging in Fukuoka. Apartments from private owners and bed and breakfast inns are available through the Wimdu network. With Wimdu, there are several bonuses not available with a hostel. You'll be able to rent the place ahead of time, whereas hostels are generally operated on a first-come basis. You'll also have access to reviews and be able to compare privacy and other accommodations available with your different options. The best part, however, is the ability to converse with and get to know the person you will rent from. Having this kind of contact in the city can help with planning the itinerary and helping determine exactly what you should bring to have the best vacation ever!
