We had a great stay in Yakushima! This was in a good location, and was a pretty close walk to some restaurants, a souvenir shop, and grocery stores. The sleeping area was comfortable and our hosts were so friendly, helpful and made sure we had a nice packed lunch for our early morning hike. Our kids (age 2 and 6) also had a comfortable stay. We did find a few harmless spiders in our room, but it was expected since Yakushima is such a lush, forest area, with wildlife all around.
