【Ryokan business permitted】 We rebuilt the traditional Japanese style flat house along the castle wall of Kumamoto castle to a modern total. Child discount. Wifi equipped. A large island kitchen, a washing machine, a toilet, a bath, etc. All around the water are newly established, and we can surround the group and experience living together while leaving a Japanese style appearance. It is also a short walking distance to the city, 10 minutes on foot to the city center, in front of the bus stop, 5 minutes on foot from the streetcar, and 10 minutes on foot to Kamakumoto Station. From the traditional edge side, the castle wall of Kumamoto castle is visible on the whole, please experience the life in Kumamoto as a villa sense. Basically check in is from 15 o'clock to / 10 o'clock but it is flexible.

Hiroaki's house was perfect for us. We stayed for 6 nights whilst attending a karate championship. The house was exactly like in the photos and very comfortable for 4 adults. There is a 7-11 and 24 hour supermarket close by for all your needs and it is about a 20 minute walk to the centre of town. Your closest JR station is Kamikumamoto and it is about a 15 walk and the tram is about 10 minute walk from the house.

Hiroaki's place is beautiful, opposite the amazing Kumamoto castle. It's close to a big supermarket and a 1km walk to the city centre. Hiroaki was kind enough to drop us at the train station at check out. Unfortunately we had a mix up in our booking. We were supposed to have both houses as we were 3 families totalling 6 adults and 4 children and 2 babies. But we all stayed in the "west" house as the other house was booked out. Hiroaki was very apologetic and we negotiated a settlement. We would highly recommend Hiroaki's house for a smaller group (3 couples no children). Probably more suited to groups of adults than families with young children. But it is a unique and beautiful designed house that we well set up. Note: studio sleeping room is separated by curtains and not doors. Thank you once again for hosting us.

Stayed two nights with family of 7. We didn't need to use the car. It's walking distance to kaminoura and there's onsen just end of the street. We love the sitting around the kitchen island. Take note that there is a steep flight of stairs leading to the house.

Hiroaki san was being very supportive. He offered us picking up and Shinkansen timetable when we were running late in Fukuoka. By telling us the local weather and transportation information, he made us easier in Kumamoto. His place is same as the photos. My 5-year-old nephew was very happy to stay this house full with character. We would like to come back soon.

Mr Hiroaki's place is having the rustic ambience with a modern flair. My family enjoys our time in the apartment and our only regret is only to allocate one night in Kumamoto. Facilities are top notch from free parking to cooking and washing . Highly commendable is that he has 3 queen size bed and 2 singles which are so comfortable as it was a nice break from sleeping on futon for the past few days. Location is absolutely central 10 mins to Jyosaien and the shopping arcade. Nearby there is a 24 hour Aeon maybe about 5 mins walk. Excellent communication with pictures and maps to guide us to his apartments Highly recommended
