9.0 Excellent
Pros: The food was amazing, and the service was highly personalized and showed great attention to detail.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: It was the most amazingly luxurious, beautiful, expensive hotel we’ve ever been to. The service was ridiculous (you could have a buggy ride to your room from reception, someone ran the bath for you) and the food was unbelievably delicious and presented beautifully.
Cons: Nothing
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We stayed in Sankara for our honeymoon and everything was perfect. The staff was very thoughtful and kind during our entire stay (small cushion for my back, little gift at the end). They picked us up at Anbo and they dropped us off at the airport. The room was clean and spacious. The food was excellent (the pain au chocolat was delicious). We highly recommand this hotel.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Amazing place, amazing location, but most importantly amazing staff. It is expensive, but you could not ask for more.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: We loved everything else: the staff was incredibly thoughtful and focused in making this experience unforgettable. The rooms were perfect and the breakfast was very good and riched. We fully recommend this hotel.
Cons: The hotel was a bit far from the main activities on the highlands. There are no restaurants at walking distance. Therefore you need to rent a car either by your own or directly to the hotel (which can quickly become expensive). Also the options for reasonably-priced food are very limited in the hotel, so you can feel sometimes a bit pressured to overpay your meals.

Pros: Absolutely magical place and 5 star service!! We adored this place and its very special and personalized experience delivered by the staff!! Exceptional

9.0 Excellent
Pros: The hotel had a lovely garden in the back and a great view of the ocean. I also really liked the size for three people - very comfortable and not at all cramped.

Pros: Very nice hotel with spacious rooms AND a balcony facing the ocean. Great view!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: this hotel is 1 min walking from bus station No.61 CHUO, which is easy to visit the Giant Jomon-sugi. You can walk 5 min to a main bus terminal to buy day-passes and walk around 15 min to tourist information center. the island has only one surrouded road and you may not worry about missing way. the green hotel, its facilities and staffs are far more my expectation. the people there are very polite and friendly to schedule the travel route and call one viewing spot for whether they could take care of my lugguges. especially thanks to the pretty girl who helped check-in/out, ordered hiking-lunchbox and saw me off out of hotel. thanks for making my trip in yakushima memorable.

8.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location, right next to the river with a view of the mountains, and with a bus stop outside with busses heading up to some of the nicest (and most accessible) forest trails, as well as the busses round the island and to the ports/airport. Good quality dinner and breakfast. Nice, large rooms in the traditional Japanese tatami-and-futon style. The onsen includes a sauna and plunge pool, which was a really nice touch.
Cons: Feels a little dated away from the bedrooms, but nothing major. It's a shame there's no view from the onsen - it's quite functional.

8.0 Excellent
Pros: The staffs are all very helpful and provided and very accommodating to provide assistance to us, they did more than we expected (compared to other hotels in Japan) - from the front desk, concierge to the restaurant ....thank you for the great stay we had
8.8 Excellent
Pros: The location was five mins walks from the port which was great for leaving luggage, and was two mins walk to two bus stops and a supermarket if you needed. The standard twin room had an absolutely stunning view over the ocean (only slightly impeded by the newer hotel block below) with two large beds and ample space. Most of the staff were very kind and helpful. The spa was lovely and modern and razors etc are available if you ask. General amenities all good and readily available too. Easy check in and out process. The view made it worthwhile.
Cons: A bit tired and too expensive for what you get. Breakfast was as to be expected for an included buffet, nothing outstanding just very fresh and a large variety.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Responsive staff to our questions before arriving. Thank you for understanding our situation and making adjustments as necessary. We stayed in the new deluxe wing of the hotel, which on their website is rebranded as a separate hotel (it should be in a different star class). Terrific views of the sea, clean comfortable rooms. Much better value for money than the most expensive hotel option on Yakushima.
Cons: Some of the sashimi didn't look that fresh.

Cons: Nothing.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: The location was perfect for me, I walked from and to the the ferry port easily. It was also at walking distance to all restaurants and two big supermarkets. Check in and check out was easy and quick. The bathroom was very easy to use and very clean.
Cons: I have stayed at various guest houses and flats with futons and this one was really not comfortable, I had back pains every morning. Also, the walls are very very thin and I didn’t sleep well because I could hear the other guests talking etc until late. Because of this I don’t know if I would book again which is a shame as the location is very good.
5.4 Okay
Pros: Pretty good location, close to the port and with a bus stop right outside the property.
Cons: The room was tiny and the sound traveled easily between rooms so you could hear other guests moving and talking loudly, which was problematic in the early morning and late night when we were sleeping. The room is above a fishing shop and in the heat of summer smelled of fish bait.
7.0 Good
Pros: Everything was very clean and the staff was very friendly and helpful.
Cons: It is a little expensive for what it is: a room with futons and shared amenities. But I guess that's because Yakushima is an island and the prices are just generally higher.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The owner is very friendly and kind. For mountain climbers, you can order bentobox for next day breakfast and lunch in the front desk. The place is clean and comfortable in Japanese style. :)

9.6 Excellent
Pros: You know from the drive up to the hotel that you are arriving to something special. I will keep it short - we had an excellent 3 night stay at this resort hotel. The staff were extremely attentive to our every needs - the chef whipped us up with delicious vegetarian meals that were pictures (we did not stop taking pictures of the dishes we were served). We asked for directions for a recommended site on the Island - the following morning we were given a satellite picture of the site with exact directions. Just a few examples. The Hotel grounds are beautiful and do not miss the waterfall about a 20 minute walk. The bedroom was very lovely with comfy beds, linens, towels - modern, light and clean. The view (either side is amazing). Dining room is very nice and so is the spa , lobby and other public areas. Nice farewell from the staff to end this lovely memorable stay.

7.5 Good
Pros: Nicely decorated room in a beautiful location. Rooms were immaculately clean. Breakfast was delicious.
Cons: Very uncomfortable futons. Stayed in many traditional Japanese rooms and these were the worst comfort wise! Particularly considering the price.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Quiet location yet near public transport and shops, modernised traditional style. Very helpful and friendly staff who let me check in early due to the cyclone creating havoc with plans. A very cosy and comfortable stay : )
7.9 Good
Pros: Good value for money and got a lovely corner room with 8 mats and more. Futons were fine and laundry was crisp and clean.
Cons: The smell of smoke from the rooms where smoking is allowed permeated the corridor and made going to the bathrooms down toilet quite unpleasant.
9.0 Excellent
Pros: Great location, good breakfast, beautifully clean room and access to laundry, nice staff.
Cons: Not a complaint but a note to those not used to futons that you may find sleeping on a hard surface challenging, especially if muscle sore after lots of hiking.
7.1 Good
Pros: Nice house, nice room, the car ride to the ferry terminal
Cons: Walls are really really thin, futon not that comfortable
8.0 Excellent
Pros: A good example of simple Japanese accommodation away from a big city. A good sized tatami mat room which was both living room and bed (futon) room, also a small side room with chairs and a small table. Breakfast was basic Japanese style, we did manage to get a cooked egg, rather than the normal raw egg to go onto the rice. Dinner was available but we chose to eat nearby. There is a very close supermarket. Staff were very friendly although not much english is spoken. A rental car is useful for sightseeing.
Cons: Did not take Visa card for payment. Coffee not normally offered at breakfast. Not signposted in English from the access road.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Yakusugi-su is a typical minshiku in a small town on a small island. The tatami room had a nice view on the river front. Food was excellent and people nice, friendly and very helpful.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Wonderful sea views, private bath, very helpful and friendly staff. Fantastic Japanese breakfast, but also provided a western breakfast when asked.
Cons: The turn off for the hotel was a bit tricky to see at first. But look for the Turtle museum and its near there.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Location was outstanding. Listened to the ocean waves each night as we slept. Private bath also really well received. Great, remote location if you have a rental car. Great to be near turtles and see them via the Local Turtle Conservation group's organised tours.
Cons: Hot water was a little bit 'hit and miss'. Some general (minor) repairs would significantly lift the 'feel' of the place (not major/expensive repairs... just a bit here and there). There was a bit of confusion around payment, as we had payed via booking.com and this didn't seem to be clearly reflected at checkout time.
9.2 Excellent
Pros: Great location right on the beach, outside of season the place was pretty empty and super quiet. We also got to see the turtles hatching on the beach! Staff is super friendly and tries to make guests as comfortable as possible.
Cons: External terrace was made of wood that was a bit old already, stepping too hard could result in damaging it. Pretty difficult to reach without a car.
7.1 Good
Pros: The home cooked food and hospitality
Cons: Location quite far from any shops or food
9.6 Excellent

9.6 Excellent
Pros: Lovely place. The owner was very kind and gave us recommendations for places around Yakushima (just a note: because we can speak Japanese, we could communicate in Japanese, so I’m not sure if he could speak English). The toilet and bathroom were very clean, and there were always clean towels provided for use. Nice hot water (+ a bathtub). 10/10 would recommend this place and will definitely come back when visiting Yakushima. Just a note for Yakushima: if possible, rent a car - it’s much more convenient; if you hate spiders - beware, there are tons of spiders and spiderwebs all around the island
Cons: Everything was good. Though, if you don’t have a car, it would be quite far from a supermarket/restaurant
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Daichan is the best. He told us everything we would ever need to know about the local hikes, roads, beaches, onsens, resteraunts, and everything else. We felt that he genuinely cared about us and our wellbeing. Not only did Daichan give us a place to stay, he gave us a story that we'll all be telling for a lifetime. Make sure you bring a beautiful woman!
9.0 Excellent
Pros: The yurt was very roomy and the beds are hard, but comfortable. It's really pretty quiet too considering you're right near the road. At 6 am every day some musical alarm goes off so nobody is allowed to sleep in. You won't want to anyway. There's so much to see on the island! There's only 2 toilets and one shower but only 2 yurts on the property so it was never a problem. The owners are very kind and helpful. At check in he gives you his life history via google translate but otherwise they're very nice. One night he drove us to town for dinner as it was pouring rain. For the rest we walked. We had a rental car but driving at night on the wrong side of the road for us is very stressful.
Cons: Access to a kettle to boil some water would be nice for coffee in the morning. He brought us hot water at night but it was too cold by morning to use for coffee.
9.6 Excellent
Pros: These yurts are super comfortable and have everything you need. The owner must be the most hospitable person on the island. He guided me in, gave me tea, baked me sweet potatoes and told me to call him any time I needed to go to the shop so he could drive me. All will little to no English and just a translate app. Really unique setup and I would highly recommend it.
Cons: I have no complaints, but will advise that the toilet and bathroom are in separate buildings to the beds, in case that bothers anybody.
5.4 Okay
Pros: General feel of the mongol hut. The value.
Cons: The cockroach, the loooong check-in, the global confort.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Super nice host who even showed us around and gave us many useful information! It was interesting to listen to him and he also let us use his kitchen :) We enjoyed our stay and would go there again!
Cons: The location is not too accessible without a car, though very convenient for some hikes :)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The host is amazing, he took me to supermarkets, restaurants he even took me to the beach and showed me a few things around the island. When I arrived I told him what I wanted to do he planned my trip with bus times which was very helpful as there is little information on busses before you arrive. The room was very cool at night which I was surprised as the island was very hot when I went. I cannot describe how loving and chatty the host was even tho he didn’t speak much English. I would recommend this place to anyone who wants to go to yakushima. I would have payed double the price to stay here. I rate this house 1000/10
Cons: Nothing
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Host at this property was absolutely amazing! He cared about me literally all the time while I was accommodate there. Even though that he doesn't speak English and he communicate only via Google translate, he will help you with everything. Like travelling around island, with trips. I visited one onsen and he recommended me shortcut how to get there, which was very helpful. As he is local he knows everything about island and how to avoid some payments. Also that place was very clean, good WiFi connection and my host every day prepared for me boiled water

Pros: The property owner, Yuki was so wonderful and helpful. She helped me purchase my ferry tickets, organized a rental car to pick me up from the port, and gave amazing suggestions about things to do on the island (there's so much to see). The food offered here was also amazing (my friend and I ate breakfast here and also got the homemade bentos for our afternoon hikes), and the room was so cute and comfortable.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: Delightful and extremely helpful hosts. With 3 rooms sharing is no issue. Washing machine very useful. Wonderful food. Fresh fish caught on day, vegetables from garden and great cook. Location great but car recommended.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Pension Blue Drop is a wonderful place to stay on Yakushima. The rooms and facilities are clean and cosy, and it is easy to reach by either car or bus (car is recommended though - Yakushima public transport is infrequent at best). It's also close to lots of nearby attractions like waterfalls and tidal onsen pools. But where Pension Blue Drop really shines is the amazing hospitality provided by Yuki and her husband. Yuki is a kind and caring host, making every effort she can to make sure your stay is the best it can be. She speaks perfect English, and will readily give you tips and ideas for things to do on Yakushima. And the food that she and her husband cook is beyond delicious. Freshly caught sashimi, home-grown fruit and vegetables, and hearty soups and stews - exactly what you need after a long day of exploring. I can't recommend staying here enough - Yakushima is an amazing, beautiful island in itself, but what makes all the difference is the hospitality and kindness you will experience at Pension Blue Drop. It is like nowhere else, and it makes it a truly worthwhile place to stay.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: We had an awesome time, especially Yuki is a great host, she cares a lot and is lovely. We have taken all evening the sashimi plate, by far the best choice we made.

He also recommended some restaurants and even dropped us off since we didn’t have a car. Facilities are clean, quiet and overall very good. A private “onsen” is prepared for you when you get home after a long day of hiking. We wish we could stay longer.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: One of my best stays in about 10 trips to Japan, absolutely fabulous location with amazing staff and beautiful traditional rooms. The feeling of staying there cannot be explained, truly a magical experience, a 1000 times recommended!
9.6 Excellent
Pros: Sen-no-ie located just few minutes drive from Miyanoura port/town and on the way up to Shiratani Unsuikyo, making it very convenient location if you have a car. The description for room and bathroom are a bit ambiguous so we really didn't know what to expect. We were pleasantly surprised that we got our own detached cottage as well as private detached bath facility! (they are separate and require walking). The cottage is large and charming, very clean and exceed all our expectation. The bath the star of this stay, you get private Goemon bath that staff prepared with fire wood everyday and shower that you can use anytime. Also don't miss chop stick making class, we really liked it. Laundry facility is great as well, they have washer and dryer as well as rack to hang up your clothes. We missed the few details since we didn't really guide book... but actually they can even get lunch box deliver to you in the morning if you going hiking next day. Be sure to take advantage of that! Also they provide Japanese style charcoal BBQ that you can reserve and bring your own meat and fish. We really want to try it but we ran out of time. The owner, wood working master, his wife and son are very warm and welcoming.
Cons: There is only one English speaking staff, so communication can be a bit complicated at times. This is really isn't their fault but they only except cash and getting money exchanged or atm on island is a pain! so if you stay there make sure you bring enough cash. Lastly you are staying in the wood next to river which is very charming, but there can be some bugs... we got 2 mr.spider a size of a baseball visiting our room, which my wife freaked out a bit.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The cottages are very well maintained, great location and the owner was super helpful, giving us a ride to the ferry and umbrellas for our trip to Shiratani Ravine. The bus station is just a few meters away. For a proper tour of the island the best is to rent a car. Restaurants are quite limited in the area, so check on google before you want to have a dinner/lunch.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: I had a really nice stay at la Isla Tasse. The location is great, 10 minutes walking distance from the port, near some really good restaurants, bento shops and directly in front of the Ambo river. Also the room is quite spacious for a single room, there‘s no private bathroom but the 2 big bathrooms really make up for it (there‘s even a jacuzzi in each one of them!!). The breakfast was great, everything was spotless. But what made it worth the 10 is the great Miho-san who helped me as I checked in to order the rental car (which was then provided for me in front of the guesthouse), book some kayak courses, gave me advives on the trek and top things to do and she even drove me back to Ambo port after I checked out and so many other things, thanks again for you customer service it was fantastic :)
10.0 Excellent
Pros: - All the recommendations and help that provided me Miho-san, as well as her boss, were invaluable for making the most of my days staying at Yakushima. I immensely appreciate all the attention given. - The breakfasts were awesome. - All the facilities were spotless. - The room I had was quite big and very comfortable. - Regarding the location and some nearby facilities: it is just at less than 4 minutes walk from the bus stop which I used for going to Shiratani Unsuikyo and Yakusugi Land. Additionally, just in front of the bus stop there is a tiny shop that sells obentos in the morning. The rental shop for the trekking equipment is less than 15 minutes walk.
Cons: I have no complaints at all.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: The owner is helpful. He provides me advice on the trekking, and helps to order lunch box for me. The breakfast is very nice as well. It is a traditional Japanese breakfast, which is the best to start a whole-day hiking. It is clean everywhere.
Cons: Everything is good, none.
9.7 Excellent
Pros: The owners could not have been friendlier or more welcoming for our one night stay. Though there was a bit of a language barrier (they don't speak much English) they got us situated right away, drove us to the bus office to buy a bus pass, and recommended an excellent sashimi restaurant within walking distance. Our room had an excellent view over the Ambk river and my mom and I slept like logs to the sound of lapping water. Divine! It was nice being right in town and would definitely go back if we return to Yakushima. Also I highly recommend springing for the Japanese style breakfast in the morning. It's a great deal at 500 yen.
Cons: Since the bathroom is shared (we didn't know that) there is some noise from other occupants coming and going down the hall at night. Not a big deal though and part of the program with a b&b style house.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The host is very friendly and nice! The breakfast is very delicious! The room is clean and tidy.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Miho is the host of your dreams, can't get any better than this. She helped me to book a rental car (car was at the door next morning), recommended restaurants nearby and even drives you there if the way is too long. Additionally the breakfast is awesome, you should definitely choose this option. House is close to Anbo Port and with a rental car you can easily explore all of the island. Communication is easy and Miho is a genuinely nice person, highly recommend to stay at Miho's place.
Cons: My stay was too short

Pros: You know from the drive up to the hotel that you are arriving to something special. I will keep it short - we had an excellent 3 night stay at this resort hotel. The staff were extremely attentive to our every needs - the chef whipped us up with delicious vegetarian meals that were pictures (we did not stop taking pictures of the dishes we were served). We asked for directions for a recommended site on the Island - the following morning we were given a satellite picture of the site with exact directions. Just a few examples. The Hotel grounds are beautiful and do not miss the waterfall about a 20 minute walk. The bedroom was very lovely with comfy beds, linens, towels - modern, light and clean. The view (either side is amazing). Dining room is very nice and so is the spa , lobby and other public areas. Nice farewell from the staff to end this lovely memorable stay.

They picked us up at Anbo and they dropped us off at the airport. The room was clean and spacious. The food was excellent (the pain au chocolat was delicious). We highly recommand this hotel.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: We loved everything else: the staff was incredibly thoughtful and focused in making this experience unforgettable. The rooms were perfect and the breakfast was very good and riched. We fully recommend this hotel.
Cons: The hotel was a bit far from the main activities on the highlands. There are no restaurants at walking distance. Therefore you need to rent a car either by your own or directly to the hotel (which can quickly become expensive). Also the options for reasonably-priced food are very limited in the hotel, so you can feel sometimes a bit pressured to overpay your meals.

Pros: this hotel is 1 min walking from bus station No.61 CHUO, which is easy to visit the Giant Jomon-sugi. You can walk 5 min to a main bus terminal to buy day-passes and walk around 15 min to tourist information center. the island has only one surrouded road and you may not worry about missing way. the green hotel, its facilities and staffs are far more my expectation. the people there are very polite and friendly to schedule the travel route and call one viewing spot for whether they could take care of my lugguges. especially thanks to the pretty girl who helped check-in/out, ordered hiking-lunchbox and saw me off out of hotel. thanks for making my trip in yakushima memorable.
