I stayed 5 nights here and loved it. It's a labor of love; the owner has put her heart and soul and a lot of creativity into the place (bonus! support a woman-owned business!) The bunks are extra big with lots of headroom and elbow...More

Kinco, renovated from a 50-year old building, is located in the heart of Takamatsu. In our dormitoly on the second floor, you can stay in very unique wooden bunk beds called "Negoya" which is designed to provide ...More you a comfortable space and some privacy. Each negoya has outlets, a small table, a clip-on light, hangers, and a locker. The first floor is a cozy cafe where you can enjoy ethnic dishes and variety of drink like pour-over coffee, seasonal homemade drink, and several alcoholic beverages etc. It also works as a common area, so you can spend time with other guests and locals. Of course Free WiFi is available in the whole building. It is very easy to get here via public transport. There are bus stops just in front of Kinco and the nearest Kotoden-train station Hanazono is about 5 minutes from Kinco on foot, so it is convenient to reach JR Takamatsu train station, bus terminal, ferry port and the main shopping area. We offer rental bikes if you want to get around here and there at your own pace. Less
