It is very comfortable and cozy place to stay. I enjoyed meeting people, and I think it is one of the great part of traveling. Yasu-san is very kind, caring, and service-minded owner. He took us to see the great night view in Moji. It was only one night, but I've enjoyed very much. Thank you.

毎年8月13日「関門花火大会」の日には、海峡に咲く大輪の花火も望める宿です。*今回はご利用・コメントありがとうございました。花火大会の日に車で関門エリアにいらっしゃったのは本当に大変だったと思います。普段の関門も味わいに、是非またお越しください。 On Aug.13, the day of Kanmon Firework Festival, we can also look down giant fireworks, blooming on the strait. *Thank you for your stay and comment. We think that it is very hard for you to drive here on the day of firework festival. Please come and stay here again on normal day to feel the relax atmosphere of Komorie and beautiful view of Kanmon straits. Yasu of TOUKA

한적한 마을에 위치하고 있습니다. 체크인 후 사장님께서 추천하신 레스토랑에서 밥을 먹었는데, 일본 물가에 비해 가격도 저렴하고 맛있고 거기다가 바다뷰까지 정말 기분좋게 식사를 했습니다. 사장님은 게스트를 최대한 편하게 해주셨고 친절하셨습니다. 숙소는 화장실이며 침대며 아기자기하고 깔끔했습니다. 기타큐슈에 가는 여행자분들에게 적극 추천합니다!! 후회 안하실꺼예요

Thank you for your stay and comment. You have really good eyes to find good thing. Not only about TOUKA, but also about the restaurant we recommended you to try, you commented concretely and we agree 100% with your opinion. As we are a little guesthouse who doesn’t serve dinner, we recommended this restaurant as our dining place. It is because we like the restaurant very much, it is not known among the tourists, and we are confident that guests of TOUKA can enjoy their meals and atmosphere very much. Yes, this is the secret between our guests and us. So please come and visit here again with your friends (boyfriend?) and share fine experience you had this time.

정말 강추하는 숙소입니다! 호스트인 야스상은 유쾌하고 배려가 넘치는 분이세요. 첫째날엔 역으로 픽업도 와주시고, 숙소 이곳저곳, 근방 로컬 맛집이나 가볼 만한 곳들을 친절하게 소개해주셨어요.(인근에 있는 오쿠보 베이커리는 일본식 추억의 빵 종류를 파는 곳인데, 정감있는 빵맛을 경험하고 마치 이 동네에 사는 기분도 낼 수 있으니 가보시길 추천해드려요~) 지역과 숙소에 애정이 깊으셔서 적극적으로 다양한 정보를 소개해주시고, 투숙객에게 필요한 것들을 한 발 앞서 챙겨주신답니다. 지역 주민들도 친절하고, 정겨운 동네에요. 살아보는 여행을 하고 싶은 분들께 추천합니다. 숙소 자체도 너무 멋지고, 창밖으로 보이는 등대와 바다 풍경도 매우 아름다워요. 이웃에 고양이들이 있어서 그들을 보는 재미도 쏠쏠합니다. 저는 관광지를 가는데 급급하고 말았지만 지금 생각해보면 야스상이 추천하는 로컬 맛집을 비롯해 숙소 인근을 충분히 즐겼다면 여행이 더욱 특별해졌을 거란 아쉬움이 남네요. 숙소에서 뮤지션을 초청해 작은 공연을 열기도 하고, 굴이 나는 계절에는 다같이 굴을 먹으러 가기도 한다네요. 본인의 의지에 따라 다채롭게 즐길 수 있는 숙소입니다~ 역에서 가깝고 고쿠라, 시모노세키, 모지코 모구 가까워서 편하게 이동했습니다~ Thank you, Yasu-san! Touka was the most memorable one of my holiday:) I miss there already. Hope to visit Touka again!

Yung -san, thank you for the comment. As you noticed, there are valuable various spots around here. They are not on any guidebooks. The guest, came after your check-out, visited the hill top restaurant. When she came back from dinner, she was so excited and told me “Yassan, it was so delicious! Thank you for teaching the place!” Not only restaurant, there are more interesting and fine spots, such as Florist, supermarket, fancy 100yen shop and so on. Here is no longer developing area, and all shops, survived in this area, are very fine. Yes, you have to come back and stay here again, Yung -san. I am looking forward to seeing you again!

고쿠라역에서 거리가 꽤 있지만 조용하고 걷기에 무척 좋은 곳에 위치한다. 토우카 근처는 일본 주택가 골목인데, 정말 너무 좋았다.역 근처에 이자카야를 발견 못했다는게 조금 아쉽지만...또 호스트분이 영어가 아주 능숙하셔서 대화가 무척 즐거웠다. 그가 자랑하는 창문에서 보이는 뷰나 부엌과 연결된 테라스가 다른 숙소와는 차이점을 느끼게 해줄거다. 기타큐슈에 다시 갈일이 있다면 또 머물고 싶은 곳.

Goh-san: Thank you for the comment and kind message to TOUKA & me. I really enjoy hosting you here. About location of TOUKA, let me inform you of my idea about Komorie. From the view of transportation, Kokura is a convenient spot, that is right. However less than one day is enough to look around Kokura. Most of tourists also visit Mojiko & Shimonoseki in their trip. They are also half day sightseeing spots. Yes, our town, Komorie, is in the middle of them, and convenient to go those spots and also Yahata for Sarakura-yama Mt. and Kawachi garden. In addition, TOUKA is less than 7min walk from the station. We try to provide all tourists comfortable stay in mild harbor view atmosphere for energetic sightseeing walk for the next day. (Only for your sake, Kokura is the town of YAKUZA. One big group still working there. Day time OK. I heard that situation got improved but I am not sure about night time. This is information not in your guidebook. You better search about it.(laugh)) Thank you again for your stay here, I hope you will experience wonderful trip/adventure for your life of bright future.

고모리에 역에서 걸어서 5분거리에 있어요. 깨끗하고 조용하고 호스트분도 진짜 친절하시고 좋아요. 첫 일본여행이라서 막막했는데 에어비앤비로 메시지로 계속 대화해주셨어요. 고모리에역까지 직접 픽업 와주십니다. 타올은 렌탈 100엔 이예요. 좀 얇으니 미리준비하실분들은 준비하세용. 시모노세키도 가깝고 모지코항, 모지 라쿠노유온천, 고쿠라역 모두 jr로 한두정거장 이내에 있어요. 마실여행 즐기시는 분들께 강추합니당. 얏상 곧 또 갈께요 ^^ 좋은추억만들어줘서고마워요 ^^

Thank you for staying at TOUKA. There is more place, thing and food you can enjoy here next time. Please come again and talk more! P.S. Towel was for sale. You didn't need to return it. 「灯火」での滞在ありがとうございました。 ココにはまだまだ楽しい場所、面白いモノ、美味しい食べ物がありますよ。是非またお越しくださいね。 追伸:タオルはレンタルではなくて、販売したものなので返却しなくてもよかったのですよ。

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.
