As I mentioned earlier, when I went to Kyushu I stayed at THE スナフキンズ (Snufkinz), in Kumamoto, 中十町 (Nakajicho).
Where the heck is that you ask?
I wanted to take a vacation to a really country place, and as I previously described, my friend was going there. I tagged along.
The guesthouse is owned by Dai-san and Mika-san, and they were great hosts. The guest house is very simple, with a couple dorms, a kitchen, and dining area, a living room, a bathroom, shower, and nice wood deck. I swiped the layout from their webpage.
What did we do? We basically used it as a base during the day for travel around the area, and hung out together all night until bedtime. The Japanese was flowing pretty fast and furiously, so I probably only caught about 10 percent of the conversation, but I knew when to smile and when to frown.
If you are ever traveling around Kumamoto, make sure you spend a night at THE スナフキンズ, I’m sure you will enjoy it.
