Saga Prefecture has suffered many exchanges with Asia since ancient times, and for this reason it offers a variety of places of interest where visitors can experience history.
Saga City is located in Saga Prefecture with the Ariake Sea to the south and Fukuoka Prefecture to the southeast and north. The mountain range in the northern part of the city is called Sefuri Mountains.
Hotel Route-Inn Saga Ekimae is without doubt a convenient stay if you are planning to spend time in Saga. It is 35 minutes by bus from Saga Airport and just one minute walk from Saga station of JR Nagasaki Main Line. Trains from this station also continue on to the Sasebo and Karatsu Lines, so it's well connected. In fact, about 25,000 people pass through Saga Station every day and many go to Fukuoka using the express train and bus services. The hotel is in an excellent location if you want to move around the area, but it is in a perfect location if you want to explore the city too. It is within a walking distance from the main tourist attractions; we can easily reach Saga City Folk Heritage Museum, Saga Shrine, Matsubara Shrine, Saga Castle History Museum…
The guestrooms are modern and well equipped with comfortable bedding and linen, a desk for paperwork, a TV, a fridge, an alarm clock and internet connection. You really don't need to bring anything, as the rooms also include the following items: small towel, bath towel, toothbrush, shaving razor, body-wash, shampoo, electric kettle, glasses, tea bags, and a traditional Japanese clothing called Jinbei, usually worn as a form of nightwear or house wear.
Among the hotel facilities you can enjoy the use of a public bath with opening times from 15:00 pm to 2:00 am and from 5:00 am to 10:00 am.
The restaurant offers a buffet style breakfast where you can find fresh food and good drinks to start the day with.
I stayed at this hotel for four nights and I would like to say that the entire staff was warm, friendly and accommodating, making my time in Saga very relaxing and enjoyable.
