Emerge with your skin fully hydrated and your natural radiance restored.

Itazuke Restore

No food is more central to Japanese culture than rice, and Itazuke in the heart of Fukuoka is said to be one of the earliest sites where it was cultivated. This therapeutic massage honors that local heritage with heated pillows filled with brown rice kernels and bran in addition to stress-relieving mugwort. Curative essential oils of rose geranium and sweet orange unite to ease tension and restore comfort.

Ume, the representative flower of Fukuoka

Botanical Revive

An emblem of Fukuoka prefecture, the ume blossom represents renewal, while its fruit is rich in antioxidants and polyphenols. This treatment begins with an ume drink to support both the immune system and gut health, and features essential oils of gardenia and bergamot for uplift. A massage performed with a warm bamboo wand eases muscle fatigue, and acupressure facial techniques help to brighten the complexion.

Create Playful Memories With Leo the Lion

Ritz Kids® Night Safari

The Ritz Kids® Night Safari invites young guests to enjoy their very own in-room camp experience with our mascot Leo the Lion as their faithful companion. Little explorers can build a felt-toy campfire, sleep in a tent, and, once the lights are turned down, explore every nook and cranny of the room with a portable lantern. Given Leo’s infectious love for discovery, young guests may also be tempted to venture out the next day to Fukuoka Castle and Ohori Park.

Local Attractions
Ohori Park

Ohori Park

Ohori Park, located in the heart of Fukuoka, is one of Japan’s premier urban oases and is just a 15-minute stroll from the hotel. Loved by Fukuokans as a place where people, nature, and art unite, it has a broad lake that can be crossed on foot, plenty of birdlife, and is home as well to the Fukuoka Art Museum. Also within the park are a Japanese strolling garden and a Noh theater.

Jyotenji temple

Jotenji Temple

In the historic district a few subway stops from the hotel stands Jotenji, a Zen temple established in 1242. Its history is closely tied to the transmission of silk-weaving techniques from China and the development of the Hakata-ori style. Sentotei, the dry landscape garden, evokes the Genkai Sea that links this locale with the Chinese mainland. A full view of it is opened to the public each fall.

Jyotenji temple

Kushida Shrine

Two subway stops from the hotel is Kushida Shrine, which can easily be combined with Jotenji Temple on a tour of local sights. The home shrine of both Hakata Ward and the annual Gion Yamakasa Festival held in July, Kushida is also notable for its 1,000-year-old ginkgo tree, said to have special powers for matchmaking and longevity. This iconic tree is featured in the artwork of our Bridal Room.

Dazaifu Tenmangu Shurine

Dazaifu Tenmangu Shrine

For a longer excursion and an experience steeped in tradition and lush photo opportunities, pay a visit to Dazaifu Tenmangu, a 45-minute journey by train from the hotel. One of Japan’s most important shrines, this sanctuary is associated with the patron deity of learning. Three footbridges represent past, present and future, and visitors in February and March may see the 6,000 plum trees in bloom.

Food stall

Yatai Food Stalls

Fukuoka is famously one of the few cities in Japan where open-air food stalls, or yatai, are still found. The classic offerings are ramen, yakitori, gyoza, and oden (a kind of stew), though some owners cook up western-style fare. Pull up a stool to huddle with others over beer or sake, enjoy a chat with the owner, and tuck in to a hearty meal and an experience of local nightlife like no other.
