Owner doesn't really speak any english, and we hardly spoke any japanese but nonetheless somehow we succeeded in ordering bento boxes to appear the next morning. Just across the road is a good little cafe for breakfast. Room was basic but fine, and everything was clean and well kept.
Would be nice if there was wifi. There's also no fridge or microwave in the very small kitchen.
Receptionist offered us to order bento (box lunch) to take out with us while exploring the Shiratani forest. It was really a great idea because there are not so many stores in the area (no Family Mart, 7 Eleven, etc.). So she made the necessary arrangements and the next morning brought us that lunch boxes right before we left for the forest. This is also a good experience of staying in a Japanese room with tatami, futons and everything. It's quite easy to get to this place by foot from the port and there are a lot of great restaraunts right near the place (they are open from 18:00 only, though)
Receptionist does not speak English at all. It's fine for me, but might be important for many tourists.
The host is very friendly and helpful. The whole accommodation is very clean and nice. You can park you car in front of the house. You can reach a river 10 minutes away by foot in which you can swim. The scenery around is beautiful. Next to the accommodation is a small restaurant in which you can have nice and cheap breakfast.
There is no Wireless-Lan. You need to go around the corner to a resting area or to the tourist information. Some restaurants on the island have free Wifi. If you don't need any Wifi you will be totally fine!
While I may struggle to speak Japanese, and am not entirely used to sleeping on tatami, I found everything wonderful and comfortable. Coming back to a nice cool room at the end of a long day of hiking in the heat was just what I needed. Bus stop right outside to all the main spots. Everything what spotlessly clean. The staff where as helpful as possible given the language barrier.
Someone had locked the bathroom shut on the morning I was checking out and I couldn’t find a staff member to unlock it.
If you want pure Japanese style, this is it. Tatami room, futon bed, ofuro, everything is here... And that's no wifi too, for good or worst. Anyway, get a Travel Japan SIM card anyway. The owner is super mega nice, she gave us a ride to the port when we were on our way back.
No wifi. Not a complaint. Just take in mind.
Those who come here to visit find healing in the refreshing scent of the trees. We are centrally located on the island in Miyanoura at a mere 20 meters to the nearest bus stop. We'd love to be your starting point for sightseeing on the island!
