The host was super nice, friendly and helpful though she can't really speak English, she was trying her best to explain everything to us. Impressive welcoming drinks and refreshment, and the fresh flowers decoration for us. There was sweet. Lots of warm and sweet things they've done for our staying in Yakushima. xx

This was such a nice place to stay in Yakushima. The owners were so lovely - when we arrived they took us through a huge book they had made of things to do/nearby restaurants/tours/swimming beaches etc. They made us the most beautiful breakfasts I've ever had which were presented so perfectly. They also brought fresh flowers into our room each... More

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.
