TOUKA is very nice guesthouse for foreigner. This place is clean, cozy and comfortable. Location of the guesthouse is not best because it is too high, but Yasu-san picked us up. So Everything was excellent. Thank you yassan

Response from Yasu:
OK, Jiha-san, I will pick you up next time too! It is my pleasure. As Komorie station is so convenient to go Mojiko, Kokura and Shimonoseki (they are all half/one-day sightseeing spots, and Komorie is in the middle of them) that I want to help your trip by picking you (with luggage) up here! Please try our Japanese TATAMI room with panoramic harbor view. You will feel the meanings of the hight. See you! by Yasu

It was nice experience!! YASU was so considerable like my dad. I COULD be relaxed in there. The scenery in there was so good!!

Response from Yasu:
Thank you for staying at TOUKA. I am VERY HAPPY to hear you saying “like my dad”. Because I keep trying TOUKA to have at-home atmosphere like an host-family, where guests can enjoy ordinary Japanese life. In addition, I brought up my daughter (same generation as Hyun-san) all by myself, and I could feel the experience as a single father is working here usefully. Please come again to relax at your JAPANESE daddy’s house. There are many more places to see around here.「灯火」での滞在ありがとうございました。Hyun-san が「お父さんのようで」とコメントしてくれたこと、とても嬉しいです。なぜなら「灯火」を生きた日本が感じられるホストファミリー的な雰囲気に常々考えているためです。また私自身も Hyunさんと同世代の娘を育て上げていて、シングル・ファザーとしての経験がここでも役立っているんだなぁと感じられたからです。どうぞ気楽にここ「灯火」を日本のお父さんの家と考えて、またリラックスしに来てくださいね。まだまだ見るところもたくさんありますよ。Yasu of TOUKA

Response from Yasu:
Thank you very much for your comment. Yes, it was so much fun taking OPEN AIR Japanese bath together with you guys. Actually it was not natural hot spring. Sorry, it was my misunderstanding, but I think it is good to take SODA bath with watching ships running on Kanmon Strait. I am looking for seeing you soon. Thank you again and you have a nice day!

很好的一次體驗

Response from Yasu:
This time, as a special offer, we let Astor family use our staff's parking lot. However it might be difficult for you to park there, because road is too steep. As public coin parking lot is not so close to us, we want to have parking for our guests, when we will have leeway. We will inform you, when we get guest’s parking. Please visit us again with a large size automobile again. 今回特別にスタッフ用の駐車場を利用していただきましたが、傾斜地のため駐車するのはとても大変だったと思います。コインパーキングは少し離れているので、余裕が出来たら、すぐそばにゲスト用の駐車場を用意したいです。用意できたら連絡しますね。是非また大きな車でお越しください。

うだるような暑さの中、坂の上の当宿にいらしていただきありがとうございました。機会あればまたいらしてください。 次はもう少し涼しくなってからがよろしいかと思います。 お子様が喜ぶような自然の中でのアクティビティもあります。 ご家族でも・個人でも是非に! P.S. 今回は偶然とはいえ、同級生との再会には驚きましたね。

I used to be just a traveler. Now I also be a host for travelers, because I opened "TOUKA", June 2016.
The Japanese word "TOUKA" means "Light from Lighthouse".

I was born in this town Moji, and have moved to Tokyo, U.S. and other places. After 30 years as a company business man, I decided to come back to my original place, led by the Light (TOUKA).

I've really wanted to be in this place for many years and got a great chance to open a Little Guesthouse under a little Lighthouse for tourists from all over the World.

Unfortunately, there is no guidebook explaining Komorie. Even internet does not have enough info about this hideaway. So, fortunately, it is very exciting for me to show guests, various fine spots and activities here.

Please call me "Yassan", as my friends call me.
