Shikinoyado Onoaida is a hidden gem. Well situated with a great outlook over Onoaida town. Kentaro & his lovely wife Satoko are great hosts. We had everything from a BBQ to traditional Japanese mutli-course meals - all from local produce. Satoko is a superb cook. Kentaro was incredibly helpful (excellent English) suggesting walks on Yakushima island as well as other... More

My partner and I stayed at Shikinoyado Onoaida for 3 nights. It was hands down the highlight of our Japan trip. A big part of this was Kentaro and his wife's exceptional service. The property and each of the houses are beautiful, spacious and very homely. The food was incredible. Every breakfast and dinner served to us, was so beautifully... More

We spent four nights at the Shiki no Yado during a one moth trip in Japan, and enjoyed every minute of it. It's a warm and welcoming family establishment run by Kentaro and his wife, both of which speaks english fluently. We did the booking itself online through a local guiding company called "Yes! Yakushima", as with every other aspect... More

Located right near central Onoaida, this friendly, home style B&B has a great location for exploring southern Yakushima, without being too far from Miyanoura or the airport. The owners are very friendly and welcoming. The "Western Toroki" rooms are a bit small and cramped, with uncomfortable low beds. The "Condo" rooms next to the main building are more spacious, much...

Beautifully located, comfortable rooms equipped with all necessary. Kentaro and his wife are really friendly and caring. The food is really good and particularly when you have it on the beautiful terrace just under the mountain. We really loved Yakushima and this place, we hope to go back again in future, and as soon as we arrive, "Kentaro-san, 2 birre... More

Travelling to Yakushima means arriving in the north or north west, but going down south the island to Shikinoyado at Onaoida is worth the trip. We enjoyed the familiy driven ryokan very much. It is a quiet place at the foot of the Mochomu mountain, some distance from the sea. Every evening and every morning we were surprised about the... More

We stayed in Yakushima for 4 nights with our 2 kids in July 2014. The owner helped us to arrange a rental car at the ferry terminal. If you take the jetfoil to come to Yakushima, it is better to go to Anbo instead of Myanoura. Anbo is 20 minutes driving from the guest house. In Anbo, you will also... More

We reorganized our entire trip to find a week that had availability. I am happy to report that it was worth it. Yakushima is not the first or even 10th place most people thing of visiting when they plan a trip to Japan. They are missing a lot. I can’t think of a better compliment to Yakushima’s natural beauty than... More

We really enjoyed our stay here. There is a lovely homey atmosphere and a spectacular mountain backdrop. The home cooked food is great and beautifully presented; one evening we had a barbecue. The host couple speak English well and we're really helpful about island tips. There's a washing machine for guests to use and they also lent us snorkels. Location... More
