We wanted to get away from the crowds and came across the International villa on lovely Shiraishi Island. We were warmly welcomed by Amy. The villa is on top of a hill, overlooking the bay and beautiful sunset. We were lucky that weekend to be able to witness a local fire ceremony at the temple. The local people were kind... More

We stayed two nights in this cozy, well equipped and nicely furnished villa with a friendly manager. It is just 5 min to the beach. You can go for a walk through the hills or jogging around the island. We were the only visitors during this weekend. If you like to experience a piece of japan without a lot of... More

The Shiraishi International Villa makes for an excellent break from museums, temples, and train schedules. I've always wanted to try kayaking on the Inland Sea and this provided a perfect opportunity - kayaks are available for a very reasonable rental fee, and there's another island with a convenient picnic spot just over 2km away. As others have mentioned, there are... More

My boyfriend and I had been doing some hectic travelling around Japan and were looking for a place to have a little break and we struck gold with this place. It is a lovely building with huge windows overlooking the beach where you can watch the sunset! The room was nice and large (western room). There is a communal kitchen... More

Need an escape from your hectic life in the big cities in Japan? Shiraishi Island is the answer for complete relaxation and fresh sea air. Located a short ferry ride from Kazaoka in Okayama Prefecture, Shiraishi Island is Japan’s hidden paradise and my absolute favourite place in Japan. I have been there at least five times and I am often... More

Nice guesthouse. We were lucky that we were the only one in the Villa. There are 6 sleeping rooms and 1 big living room and a big kitchen. You have a nice view to the left and right .... BUT ..... to the horizon you will see also the very big industry of Fukuyama (!) ... We spent 3 nights... More

The villa overlooks the beach from the top of a hill. It is fantasticslly well equipped with lots of kitchen implements, towels, washing machine and dryer, big deck overlooking the sea and a really nice chilled atmosphere. There is one local shop which has food supplies and one with beer supplies! It is a bit more expensive but its worth... More

We spent 2 days here and wished we had spent more. We were there mid-week and for the first night, we were the only ones day. On the second night, someone else joined us. The place is an absolute bargain considering the sort of facilities there are. We really enjoyed sitting out on the deck watching the sun set. Shiraishi... More

An amazing place to relax. Overlooks a beautiful beach where you can hire your own hammock for the day at Moo's cafe . We stayed there mid week when the villa had no other visitors. Feel that it might feel crowded when full though as shared areas are small.

I enjoyed very much staying there and just to hang out on the terrace enjoying the view, biking around the island, walking at the beach or just stroll around in the small town. We... More
