The owners/hosts were such a kind, friendly young family! It was a fantastic pleasure to stay here, in every way. In pretty fluent English, he provided tourism information, and any advice we could want. He ordered a delicious hiking lunch ("bento") for us, which arrived 4am before we left for the mountains. The cottage we stayed in was new, fresh,...

Character cottage or house. The area is kind of holidays park but quite quiet. The staff speaks very good English and knows some Chinese too !

Dear guests, Thank you for taking your time for the review. Great to hear your overall experience of Cottage Morinokokage during your stay was nice. I really appreciate your pointing out that the window/frame is not quite secure. Actually, the window/frame is fine, but it was window shutters. We fixed this problem already!

The hotel is in a stunning quiet location. We stayed in a cottage in the Japanese style for 3 nights. The interior of the room was simple but very special, the more you looked around there more lovely small details you noticed. In the morning we could see a fawn near our cottage. But what made this trip especially memorable...

As a solo traveller visiting Yakushima for the first time, I was really fortunate to be able to stay at Cottage Morinokokage.

We loved our stay at the Cottage. The owner was really friendly and wonderful. The cottages were perfect - just what you need to relax in after the day in Yakushima.

English is below. 素敵なコテージ。親切なスタッフ。 コテージの中だけではなく、付近も良い雰囲気で、とてもリラックスが出来ました。 布団はとても気持ち良くて、ぐっすりと寝れました。 コテージの中に幾つかの可愛い飾りがあって、家らしく感じました。 無料洗濯機もあったけど、衣類乾燥機は有料です。しかし、一回だけでは、徹底的に服を乾かせなかったようです。 室内にポットはありますが、給湯ボタンを押してお湯が出ませんでした。 外国人の客も多く、スタッフの一人がある程度英語が話せるようで、外国人にも向いてると思います。 The staff were very kind and friendly and the cottages are wonderful. Not only in the cottages themselves, but the surrounding area has a great atmosphere. We were able to relax a lot. The futon was also really soft and comfortable and perfect after a long hike.
