This was a highlight of our trip. Kentaro and his gorgeous family showed us excellent hospitality, starting off with a surprise meet-up at the bus stop when we arrived later than expected. We were warmly welcomed with a fantastic meal, the food was excellent, and catered towards our dietary requests. After dinner we were treated to some magic tricks and playing time with the kids, brought on by our small souvenir gift to them from Hiroshima :) They're now friends for life! (The kids are so sweet and well behaved and did not 'intrude' unless the guests requested it like we did). Kentaro loaned us a guide book and printed out some maps and bus timetables for our hike the following day. Every meal was top quality with fresh local produce. The accommodations were spacious, comfortable and clean (we were upgraded for free due to a vacancy on the nights we stayed). No request that we had was any trouble and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. I want to move in! We will definitely be back and I cannot recommend staying here highly enough. To top it all off, we had the stunning mountain views out of the front door, and the ocean out our bedroom window. The scenery is perfect. Thank you Kentaro and your beautiful family for such a great visit to Yakushima.
