Onegai Kaeru team introduces not-so-famous beautiful locations in Japan. This one may be the exception. 

 

In this article we introduce how to get Yakushima island and also the list of places(over 120 guesthouses, inns, cottages, pensions, hotels, camping sites) to stay on the island( probably the biggest list online!).

 

This island is with the title of Word Heritage and also featured in several famous movies like Princess Mononoke by Hayao Miyazaki and games like Tekken and Metal Gear Solid.  You will enjoy not only the great wild nature but also wonderful hot springs here and there on the island.

 

The island is called Yakushima Island.


It is a round shaped land of 504.88 km2 located in Kagoshima prefecture (South of Japan).  13, 500 people living on the island. The most famous of all is the very old Japanese cedar (“Yakusugi/Jomonsugi”) around 2300 years old.

Where to Stay

Where to stay

 

So now you know how to get to the island. Now where should you stay? Some wants a total relaxation and some wants a friendly guesthouse and some wants camping. In our hope to serve everyone's taste, here is the comprehensive list of the places to stay on Yakushima Island (as of September, 2015).

 

The list is too big to process with the small Onegai Kaeru team thus still in progress. If you see any information( some good places missing, broken link etc.) missing, please let us know.

 

This list is only for reference. Several places have no websites and also the name of the places in English may not be correct. For the current room rates, and terms and conditions of each place, please communicate with directly the place of your stay with your own responsibility. We tried to put the links so that you can communicate and book the place as you like.
