If you’re looking for a quick getaway from the ordinary during your precious few days off, Fukuoka has just the spot for you.
Located about a 30-minute drive from the city of Fukuoka is Shikanoshima Island, an island which captivates all those who visit with the fresh, vibrant beauty of the surrounding Genkai Sea.
With other nearby attractions such as the Uminonakamichi Seaside Park and the Marine World Aquarium, it is no wonder that the area receives many visitors both from within Japan and, more recently, from countries abroad such as China and Taiwan.
Today we’d like to introduce one hotel where you will no doubt be able to make the most out of your stay on Shikanoshima Island: ZABaN Shikanoshima.
All kinds of guests choose ZABaN Shikanoshima for their stay for a wide variety of reasons.
To name just a few:
①As the final overnight stop on a girls’ trip for three
②As a rest stop for families or groups of friends
③To enjoy some good seafood, barbecue and more
④As a sightseeing destination for tourists from overseas during their stay in Fukuoka
⑤And even for company retreats and meetings (the entire hotel can be booked for such events)
Shikanoshima Island itself has so much to offer, such as its history, cuisine, and beautiful sea. At ZABaN Shikanoshima, guests can enjoy the hotel’s uniquely accessible, imaginative new take on the beauty of the island, which you can truly feel simply from the atmosphere present throughout the interior of the hotel.
Here you can sit back and relax in the hotel’s chic marine-inspired interior fused with the look and feel of an old-time traditional inn.
The hotel’s recommended dish? Its seafood dishes made using local ingredients fresh from the Genkai Sea, of course! The hotel is also known for its generously sized hamburgers and homemade pickles.
But above all else, this is the perfect place to enjoy the laid-back atmosphere of Shikanoshima Island and forget the hustle and bustle of everyday life.
