Cottage Morinokokage is absolutely beautiful and Disney-like. Situated in a quiet little corner of stunning Yakushima, it is the perfect place for a relaxing vacation. Our quaint wooden cottage blew me away- comfortable and warm futons, lots of space, all the amenities you would need, and a very clean, lovely bathroom. We also had such a warm welcome from the owner, who spoke good English and is really friendly and cute! Location wise, it is near Port Anbo but quite a distance from the main and busier port- Miyanoura. As the public buses are really infrequent, travelers who don’t drive (like us) should study the bus schedules beforehand and plan their itineraries accordingly. If you drive, that’s even more reason to stay at this magical place. A simple breakfast of bread is provided, and for a small cost they also provide delicious bentos for your hikes, which we really loved! For me, enjoying the cottage was an attraction in itself :) as a bonus, lots of stars come out to play on a clear night- wonderful treat for stargazers. I only just left the cottage and I miss it dearly already.
