Futsukaichi Onsen, located within 30 minutes from Fukuoka Airport, Hakata, and Tenjin, has a history of writing poetry by many-time poets, travelers from Otomo and Michizane Sugawara. It is a hot spring that continues to boil and is still popular with many people.
Daimaru Besso has been welcoming customers here since the first year of Keio (1865). It has long been patronized by the Imperial family and the Literati on their trips. Shortly after World War 2, the Emperor Hirohito honored the hotel with his stay on his trip to Kyusyu Island, and since then we have had the pleasure of having a great many guests visit us as Fukuoka’s “back room.”
Daimaru Besso located at the foot of nationally famous The Tempaizan, covers 7.5 acres mile site. We sincerely hope that our 4.5 acres square mile Japanese garden will beguile the tedeum of your journey along with the hot spring gushing our with a rush night and day.
