“Stepping back in time”
Reviewed 31 July 2012

An amazing place to relax. Overlooks a beautiful beach where you can hire your own hammock for the day at Moo's cafe . We stayed there mid week when the villa had no other visitors. Feel that it might feel crowded when full though as shared areas are small.

The perfect place to get away for a few days if your tired of the big cities, tempel sigthseeing etc. and you just want to relax. I enjoyed very much staying there and just to hang out on the terrace enjoying the view, biking around the island, walking at the beach or just stroll around in the small town. We met some great people there, did some cooking and just enjoyed to do nothing. Its a traveleres - hostel place which feels a bit like at home with some roommates. Dont expect it to be as in the pictures, its a bit run down in the mean time. But this doesnt matter at all - the price is fantastic and far the cheapest accomodation we stayed at. Would be also a cool place to go to with a couple of friends if you are living in the area. And I recommend this place also if you are traveling around Japan for quiet some time and want to relax from everything.

If you want to get away from cities, noise, traffic etc Hattoji is great. There's lot of nice scenery and hiking and plenty of peace and quiet.
The villa was really nice, a large original Japanese building with great cooking facilities, a modern washing machine and original but nice bathing area. There's good heaters in all the rooms and big glass sliding doors allowing a wonderful view. The caretaker lives in the farm house opposite the villa, and although she has limited English managed to tell us everything we needed to know.
It definately pays to bring all your food with you - we didn't see anywhere around to buy food or eat out.
We got to and from the villa using public transport (train and bus) and its nice to see that although in the countryside, Japanese transport was still as clean, dependable and efficient as it is in the cities.

  • Liked — Quiet, views, free use of push bikes
  • Disliked — nothing
