We got our tickets only two weeks before our trip and it was on sale. We had to wait for our two friends if they get the visa before booking anything. We’re really glad they did. It was a scramble then to find decent accommodation. We’re just glad that it wasn’t high season. Hotels were really expensive at the time of booking. The cheapest I could find was 5,000 pesos for a double room per night. So, I turned to looking for Airbnb in Fukuoka. We had a really good experience from our Airbnb in Tokyo last year. This was equally a pleasant experience.
