Kelly welcomed me by name as i walked up; later i met Dale and he warmly welcomed me as well. it's only a 6 or 7 min. walk from the train station, and very easy to find. the room was great, everything i needed inside: private bathroom, kitchen, wifi, tv w/ dvd player (for their large, and free, dvd library)....

Kelly made me very welcome and provided surf gear for hire, a charger when I forgot my phone, and delicious soup post surfing. The room was spacious and comfy and the location was perfect for the beach. Looking forward to going again.

Easy, relaxed. The accommodation is very close to the (white sand) beach. My son had his first surfing lessons with one of their instructors who was very patient with my so . The food was relaxed and casual, but tasty; just what we wanted for the weekend. Supermarket conveniently situated so we took a walk up there.... Will be booking...

The hostel is simple, but clean and it has everything for a comfortable stay. I just had one day in the weekend to try out some surfing and the owner took me out at 6.00 in the morning on his daily workout. Very friendly service and just a short walk from the beach (2-3 minutes). The spot is crowded in...

Onjuku is a lovely beach a couple of hours out of Tokyo, faster if you can find an express train. There are a lot of stops on the local train.

Onjuku is a reliable, beautiful, and chill surf spot easily accessible from Tokyo by the JR Wakashio train from Tokyo station. I've been going there most weekends for the last year. Flying Sumo is newest and nicest hotel I've stayed at, and the outdoor barbecue set up is fantastic in summer. In addition to being a hotel it is also...

If you are looking for food (legit pizza!) drinks (craft beer! coffee) and/or a laid back, modern place to stay in Onjuku this should be your first stop. All are high quality and delivered with friendly, honest service. Also surf lessons,...

This place has everything you need to surf or paddleboard in Japan. They have a great selection surfboards to match changing wave conditions. Plus wetsuits too. Great accommodations and your hosts are the best. Not to be missed and a welcome break from busy Tokyo!😀
