This time it was used for a honeymoon. The location, service and food were great. The care of the staff was very nice and comfortable. Especially after Jomon cedar trekking, I was very happy that the bath was prepared when I returned to the hotel. The chef was wonderful and the food was very delicious with Yakushima ingredients. I want to use it again.

I am indebted very much this time. Good food and delicious service ... I went to Yakushima for diving, but I also enjoy staying at the hotel. So, I'm personally insisting. I think that I would like breakfast to be prepared for rice as it is made with miso soup.

The customer service was fine and in particular, French was the best, and it was one of the three Frenchs in life. It was a surprise dish with plenty of creative French and earth stuff. This is the best if you have a hot spring.
