“Interesting place to stay”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 September 2013

We had a very comfortable stay at this hotel. It was a good base from which to explore this small island and all its fascinating national parks. The hotel was clean and well maintained perhaps needing a bit of a refurb. We had a room with a sea view. The restaurant and the public spaces had views of the forest which was lovely as well with a variety of colours of green created by the different species of trees making it look like a patchwork quilt. The breakfast was excellent as were the pack lunches. We managed with no Japanese language through a great deal of gesticulations, bowing and laughter. Some of the staff spoke a little English

The hotel is located in the south of Yakushima Island, which is a bit like Corsica in the sense that it is a small island full of wildeness, high mountain rising up in the middle.

Mordern architecture with western rooms.With nice hot spring bath facilities. Also a swimming pool we did not make use of. The rooms are either mountain view or sea view, both very good. We had sea view room with balcony.

The room is spacious enough and twin bedded. No double room. Becoming old but properly cleaned.

The bed cover needs to be replaced soon.

No internet in rooms nor in the public area.

The dinner as well as breakfast were excellent, hopefully more choice of a la carte dishes for dinner. I usually do not like pre-fixed menu as with often too large portion and no flexibility to choose what I eat.

Everything we ate was good but particularly Sashimi (raw fish) of Kibinago( smaller than anchovy) local fish) and Kubiore Saba.(extremely fresh mackerel) incredibly freshly served.

If you visit Yakushima it is highly recommended to drive through Seibu Rindo (Western Forest Road), although not a majority of tourists seem to do so. Amazing to see wild animals hanging and hopping around . It is a very narrow asphalt road in most parts.
