OK, so we have no way of comparing this place to anywhere else on the island. That said,we couldn't imagine a more friendly or more obliging couple. Kentaro and his wife could not have made us feel more at home. We had booked one of the Japanese tatami rooms but were offered one of the larger accommodations with an upstairs...

Our stay at Kentaro-san's Shiki no Yado Onoaida was one of the best experiences of our three-week travels around Japan. Ken and his family were very friendly and helpful and we really enjoyed their hospitality and kindness. Our room had a very beautiful view of the mountain that was especially enjoyable from the romantic, outside bath. Having a traditional Japanese...

We arrived in the dark, having caught the last ferry across and the last island bus, they stop at 6.10 pm, be warned. We found our way and what a relief to hear a friendly voice call out our name. This was the best accommodation during our month tour of Japan. The host and hostess cannot do enough to make...

We had a very memorable 4days stay at Shikinoyado, located at 20mn by bus or car west of Anbo port and nestled in a luxuriant natural setting with great views to Mt. Mocchomu.The hostfamily warmly welcomed us, the owner speaks fluently English, which makes communication very easy. The well-appointed japanese style condo room with terrace was very large and cosy...

We are a family of 3 and we visited Yakushima in end of June. We stayed 3 nights at Shikinoyado and absolutely loved our stay. Shikinoyado is about 40 minutes from the ferry and is located in the southern part of Yakushima, in the town of Onoaida. I am glad we stayed 3 nights as there were plenty to do...

The rooms are spacious and clean and you get a real Japanese stay. We were lucky enough to enjoy a traditional barbecue with the island most famous flying fish, besides prawns, every sort of meat, rice and vegetables: everything vey good. The owner is really polite, speaks fluent English (do not take it for granted) and is willing to give...

The hotel is located at a quite and beautiful right beside the main road. We booked a room with semi-outdoor bath for family of 2 adults 2 kids, but the nice owner Kentaro recommended us to stay at condo room which is much more spacious and my kids love that room.

Me and my friend had made a road trip down from Osaka and took the car with us on a ferry to Yakushima. and after that, took the car back to Osaka and return it. It was very convenient to have a car in Yakushima since the bus was kinda expensive and the schedule were complicated. So, our plan was...

Convenient location on a lovely island. Avoid the western style rooms though as they are cramped with very thin mattresses and itchy bedding. One night's stay was enough for us (we had paid for 3). Annoyingly, we later found out that our Specialist Travel company had booked us into the Japanese style accommodation which is said to be much better....

We want to go back and stay at Shiki no Yado we loved it so much. The meals were incredible, especially the dinners eaten outside. Room was very comfortable and we slept like logs on the futons.
