We stayed whilst we were enjoying all the art sites on Naoshima for 3 nights. The staff were friendly and helpful. The heating in the yurt was very effective and it was a lovely view in the morning. It was the hike to the loo which I found a little off putting in the night! It is, though, right next... More

First, Tsutsujiso is well placed, right on the beach and a short walk to Benesse house. The yurts look a bit shabby from the outside but they are very nice inside. I would say, though that we arrived on a hot day and they were all closed up and extremely hot on the inside. so if they opened the windows... More

This is a different type of lodging than one is probably used to. The tatami-mat huts were a lot of fun, but could be tough if your group is more than 3 (though they supposedly sleep 5). The dining experience is interesting. We went for the Asian options at breakfast and dinner. During the day stroll along the water to... More

This experience is rated 5 stars, but it has to be contextualized. This is not a luxury experience. This experience is atypical. However, I thoroughly enjoyed my experience. I stayed in one of the Mongolian yurt tents. I found it to be beautiful, almost transcendent in a weird way. The meal was fantastic, and it encouraged me to step outside... More

We spent one night in a Mongolian tent last year and had a blast. Sure, it's not luxury, but you're right on a beach and the tent/bedding was spotlessly clean. We ordered the dinner + breakfast in advance also, which were very good! The shared shower facilities weren't great (toilets fine) so we did without a shower that night. I... More

I travelled through a few cities in Japan in December of 2010, I had heard about Naoshima and knew I couldn't miss it. We arrived on the island late at night with no plans of where to stay. Hopped on a bus which took us to a residential area of the island where we didn't see a soul. We started... More

We were really looking forward to staying here as a contrast to the extraordinary Tadao Ando hotel connected to the Benasse Museum - which is the best place I've ever stayed or expect to stay in my life. When we walked into the yurts at Tsutsujiso the smell of mould inside so overwhelming that I literally could not stay there.... More

We spent one night in the expensive and wondeful oval at Bennesse house and our second night went from the top of the hill down to sea level and this inexpensive sweet play house yurt. We got there kind of late and left early but it was a charming place and we loved coming out of the tent to walk... More

the setting alongside the beach and less than 5 minutes walk from the most famous icon of the island makes it extremely convinient. the huts are fun to stay at, but be prepared to bring with you any supplies you need. the managers actually notify you about his when you amke a reservation. its a hut so dont expect showers...

We stayed in the Mongolian tents. The tents are situated in walking distance from the Benesse House and is beautifully situated right next to the beach. Ask for tent no. 1, which is right next to the beach. The tents are rather exotic and fun if you are in for a bit of an adventure. We stayed in the tent... More
