Excellent and we enjoyed very well, the environment is clear and delicate with owners' love. Also we hope to visit again in different seasons. If you should wake up earlier for mountain climbing, the owner can help you prepare the launch box, quite sweet!

This beautifully tranquil property, a short car or bus ride from the town of Anbo, comprises cosy cedar bungalows with sea views; an ideal base for exploring Yakushima. The accommodation is spacious and well-appointed–easily big enough for two or more people–and includes free wi-fi, a small kitchen area and a relaxing veranda. The attentive owners, Hiro and Kazu, provided wonderful,... More

Spacious clean cabin. The bathroom as usual for Japan small. The very friendly owners don't speak any languages other than Japanese but are used to dealing with foreigners. There's a small kitchen in the cabin, wifi and you can use a washing machine and dryer. There's only 1 restaurant in walking distance (Western food, expensive but good, reservations required) and...

We were 6 people traveling together. (4 Females and 2 Males, rent-a-car plan, 2 rooms for 2 nights) The owners are very friendly, patient and thoughtful. They gave a detailed introduction(dining info/scenic spots) to the neigbourhood and Yakushima, helped us reserve the morning/lunch bento for Jomon Sugi Trip on the next day, and even rearranged the room layout (4 females+2...

The owners of this seaside cottage are absolutely two of the nicest and most hospitable people I have EVER met anywhere in the world. They went so far out of their way to make sure that my April 2014 visit to Yakushima was the best that it could possibly be. I took the bus to their cottage from the port... More

The seaside cottage is just half minute walk next to the bus station, though the island is a lot more accessible if you rent a car. The cottage is 2 mins bus ride from Toroki waterfall, 10 mins bus ride from JR hotel Hotspring, 15 ride from Yadomari Onsen. To go to the shiratani-unsuikyo and yakusugi land, you will have... More

We went to Yakushima with almost no Japanese skills but had no problems as the owners were lovely and patient with us. The cottage was well prepared and the fresh flowers every day was a lovely touch.

La pareja que regenta las casitas son increibles, atentos, educados y muy serviciales. Nos recibieron con un coctel y un zumo y se sentaron con nosotros para darnos informacion de la isla. Al llegar de las excursiones la mujer nos traia un zumo y algo de picar. Agradable entorno. Relax absoluto. Casa limpia. La decoran con flores de su jardin... More

Everything previous reviewers said about this cottage is true. The cottage is beautiful. From the deck you can enjoy the ocean view. The owners are the nicest people, friendly and helpful.

We spent 3 nights here during a trip in late June, and had a great experience at Mori no Fairy. The owners are so kind, and went out of their way to provide information, maps, etc. in a mixture of English and Japanese. Very comfortable and cozy room with a great view of the ocean from the back deck. The... More
