We have just returned from a trip to Kyushu, where we stayed for 2 nights at Daimaru Besso. It\'s very easy to get to by car (we rented from outside Hakata station), and the facilities are excellent, with a very nice bath on the bottom floor. Food was served in our dining room each evening and was superb quality and served with great care, they also have some rather nice sake :) Our room was gigantic, with a western style sitting area, a Japanese style sitting room and a Japanese style sleeping room, with futon laid out at night. We also had a cedar tub in the bathroom which was really nice to relax in by the window.

We stayed in Daimaru Besso as the endcap to our honeymoon trip in Japan. One of my Japanese friends looked it up for us in advance to see the reviews and said she couldn\'t find a single bad review of the place even in Japanese! She was so right - we had an amazing time! We took the train from Fukuoka to Chikushino (about 30 minutes) and could find the ryokan easily. We had to cut our stay short by one evening (we needed to get off Kyushu for our flight home and a typhoon was coming). So we only stayed one night, but that one night was incredible! Most of the staff do not speak English, but a few do so there\'s no worry about communicating (we do not speak any Japanese). The place is beautiful - once you\'re inside you feel like you\'ve stepped into a different world. It\'s quiet and peaceful, with a garden in the middle of the property complete with koi ponds and beautiful trees and flowers. We stayed in the Taishotei building so we had a view of the gardens from our windows. The service was impeccable, even by Japanese standards. The food was an unparalleled experience - we\'ve never had a kaiseki meal so that in and of itself was lovely. The quality of the food was top-notch and prepared beautifully. We never got to experience the onsen on the property because we had to leave too quickly, but we had a private bath as a part of our rooms which was so relaxing. We would highly recommend this place to anybody staying in the Fukuoka area. There\'s nothing negative I could think to say about it!
