Shoot! Can’t go out.

Good morning to the World and Kanmon!

I felt very very cold wind when I watched night view at the port.
It was really painfully cold and wondered why so cold.


Just like I thought heavy snow start falling after the midnight.
In the morning, it was whole white as far as I can see.


Shoot! Our guest can’t go out after check-out.

Yes, we are locating on a hill side and last 50m of access road is very steep. So ice on road is critical for us.


First thing in the morning, when we open this guesthouse, I checked the road. and there are crispy ice covered the road.

It is no use wondering, so we decide to keep watching conditions.

After taking breakfast, when guests were ready to check-out, road was half icy and pretty better than 2 hours ago. It is still hard go walk down the hill, so I decided to help guests carrying suits case. Fortunately, there were almost no snow on national road #3 and after.

We felt easy without any guest slip and injured at our slope.

Thank you and you have a wonderful day, you noticed sliding down to downsizing life is easier to live than you thought.

TOUKA Challenge Hill Climb 2016 / 灯火 チャレンジ・ヒルクライム 2016

Japanese Title (邦題): 「灯火・チャレンジ・ヒルクライム2016」末尾に

TOUKA Challenge Hill Climb 2016!

It is perfect weather for cycling around Kanmon now. There may be many people who are planning to trip around Kyushu island by own bicycle in mid autumn.

A Little Guesthouse TOUKA wants to support such cyclists, as shown on its Trademark.

The Event, we propose for cyclists this year is “TOUKA Challenge Hill Climb 2016”.

This is the forth period of this event. We decided to keep on proposing this event by later November.
MOJI is the north most town of Kyushu. It is a port town surrounded by mountains and oceans. At same time, that makes our town on the slopes of several hills, geographically and historically. In such slope town, TOUKA stands on a typical slope, can be called as “The MOJI Slope”.
So utilizing this geography, we planned “TOUKA Challenge Hill Climb 2016” for powerful and smart cyclists to get discount for one night stay in MOJI. We will honer the winner of this challenge, and praise with a discount for stay of that day.
(Amount of discount may be small but honor is maximum.)

If you think you are “The Cyclist” who is sure of success, please challenge this event.

“TOUKA Challenge Hill Climb 2016!”




今回は第四期にあたります。 「灯火」としては11月後半まで実施する予定なので、あらためて告知する次第です。

○ チャレンジ概要:
九州最北端のわが町 門司(もじ)は海あり、山ありの港町。 同時に地理的・歴史的に人の住めるスペースが限られる坂の町。 そんな坂の町で、“ザ・門司”ともいえる急な坂の途中に立つのがゲストハウス「灯火」。 その地域色を生かし、健脚自慢のサイクリストに宿代の値引きをかけてチャレンジしてもらいたいのが「チャレンジ・ヒルクライム2016」です。 成功者にはその栄誉を称えるとともに、小額ではありますが 宿代をディスカウントさせていただこうという企画です。


・実施期間: 2016年10月21日(金)〜2016年11月25日(金)
① 成功当日の宿泊料金から500円割引(通常宿泊者 例:3,000円→2,500円)
② Hill Climb Success Member List 2016に掲載し、(館内・HP上で)公開。

本企画は正直なところ、誰も成功することはないだろうとも思いながら、成功するサイクリストがいたらお会いしてみたい、という好奇心から企画したものです。 震災後の三陸海岸のアップダウンを走った宿主がほぼ毎日挑戦するも、まだ一度も成功したことはありません。
