Easy, relaxed. The accommodation is very close to the (white sand) beach. My son had his first surfing lessons with one of their instructors who was very patient with my so . The food was relaxed and casual, but tasty; just what we wanted for the weekend. Supermarket conveniently situated so we took a walk up there.... Will be booking... More

The hostel is simple, but clean and it has everything for a comfortable stay. I just had one day in the weekend to try out some surfing and the owner took me out at 6.00 in the morning on his daily workout. Very friendly service and just a short walk from the beach (2-3 minutes). The spot is crowded in... More

Onjuku is a lovely beach a couple of hours out of Tokyo, faster if you can find an express train. There are a lot of stops on the local train. Flying Sumo and its owners and staff are friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the local area. The selection of craft beers is a revelation in a land relatively starved of... More

Onjuku is a reliable, beautiful, and chill surf spot easily accessible from Tokyo by the JR Wakashio train from Tokyo station. I've been going there most weekends for the last year. Flying Sumo is newest and nicest hotel I've stayed at, and the outdoor barbecue set up is fantastic in summer. In addition to being a hotel it is also... More

I have been going to Flying Sumo for the last five years and have always had a great experience. If you are looking for food (legit pizza!) drinks (craft beer! coffee) and/or a laid back, modern place to stay in Onjuku this should be your first stop. All are high quality and delivered with friendly, honest service. Also surf lessons,... More

This place has everything you need to surf or paddleboard in Japan. They have a great selection surfboards to match changing wave conditions. Plus wetsuits too. Great accommodations and your hosts are the best. Not to be missed and a welcome break from busy Tokyo!😀

Everything about this place is perfect. The rooms are large and clean. It is walking distance from most places in the town, including being a 1 minute walk from the beach and some very yummy restraunts. And to top it all off the owners are two very kind hearted people who are more then happy to help you out if... More

A friend turned us on to Flying Sumo. We were in Japan for a couple of weeks and wanted a beach/surf/outside the city experience. We were not disappointed. Onjuku is such a cool little town, though to be sure, it is a Japanese cool little town. Several high rises seem like they could ruin the vibe, but when you are... More
