Nara -san: Thank you for staying at our guesthouse. And we really thank you for spending your time to leave wonderful review about us. But the name of our nearest station is “KOMORIE” and our KOMORIE is convenient not only to Kokura and Mojiko, but also to Shimonoseki. If you want to enjoy real Japanese style accommodation (in calm neighborhood), we are good for you, but if you like to stay in big city style place surrounded by bars, restaurants and noisy party people, we may not be good place for you. Yes, it is a great pleasure for us to advice/support our guests to make fun trip plan around Kitakyushu and Shimonoseki, which is not popular places in Japan. As there are more fun places to visit, please come here again. We are looking forward to seeing you someday.

Thank you for staying at TOUKA. I am glad to hear you satisfied with the time you spent here. It is not because of me, it is because of you, Hyewon-san. As you are so active and friendly, I could help you to enjoy staying this area. There are much more fun places to visit here. So please come and visit here again. Let us have fun time again. 「灯火」のご利用ありがとうございました。満足いただけたというコメントが聞けてとてもうれしいです。私ではなく、Hyewonさんがとても活動的で親しみやすい方だったので、こちらにいらっしゃる間、楽しく過ごしていただけるよう、こちらからもサポートすることができました。まだまだ見るべき面白い場所はたくさんあるので、是非またお越しください。また一緒に楽しい時間を過ごしましょう。Yasu of TOUKA

Only less than 10 minutes walk from the Komorie Station and to the supermarket. You wouldn't regret to stay in this modern and well decorated 2 storey house up the little hill but under the small lighthouse. The grand panoramatic sunset view is for free. Full amenities, spotless …

For all travellers I highly recommend Touka! If your original plan was to bypass Kitakyushu I urge you to reconsider as Kitakyushu has many sights too - Kokura, Mojiko etc, and of course stay at Touka! Yasu-san is an amazing host - I won't share more so you can experience it your…

Joberg-san: Thank you for recommendation. I am not so amazing, BUT this place KOMORIE is pretty amazing spot, I believe. I guess nobody knows about Komorie, even Japanese. We will welcome young travelers like Joberg-san, with Japanese Tatami room with Futon, Kotatsu table, Samurai MUSASHI’s sward, Japanese Jacket and other Japanese cultural items and soon with SAKURA, Cherry blossoms. The symbol of Komorie is SAKURA. Joberg-san, please come again. you should go KARATO, Shimonoseki for fine SUSHI next time. Joberg-san: オススメしていただき、ありがとうございます。自分はたいしたことはないホストですが、この地「小森江」はなかなか大したスポットです。おそらく日本人も含め「小森江」を知っている人すら少ないと思います。そんな隠れたユニーク・スポットですが、灯火」はここで「畳の和室、日干ししてふかふかの布団、その他さまざまな日本的文化をもって、Joberg-sanのような若い旅人のお越しをお待ちしています。まもなく桜の花も咲きはじめ、旅人を歓迎してくれるシーズンに突入です。なんてったって小森江のシンボルは「桜」ですから。 Jobergさん、是非またお越しください。次回は下関、唐戸市場にも行かないとですね。Yasu of TOUKA

I was originally going to stay at Kitakyushu because the space between Hiroshima and Nagasaki was too great, I was originally on the way to bigger and better things. I could not have foreseen that Touka and the Kanmon strait were in fact the bigger and better things. Yassan is an…

I know it's only OMOTENASHI, but I like it! ( You know OMOTENASHI is just like rock’n roll for me. ) It was really a wonderful experience for me to host a tall Aussie young man. Please come again, with your friend, with your family. Sure! TOUKA will welcome you back.

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 busines…
