We were in Fukuoka for a few days and decided to check out a few onsen there. The first one we went to was Hakatayu. The old name of this place is Suita no Yu, but in 1860 they changed their name to Hakatayu. I think the name is a bit deceiving, because it's quite far from Hakata in downtown Fukuoka. The onsen is walking distance from JR Futsukaichi station. The train ride from Hakata takes about 20 minutes.

Facade of Hakatayu.

Unfortunately I could not take pictures in the bath. The interior of the building was quite nice, so I took a few pictures of that. The bath was good too, but it was a hot summer day, so I could not stand the heat very long.
