The JR Hotel is a wonderful hotel to stay in, small and well situated on top of a hill overlooking the sea and a view of the mountains on the other side. Our room had a most wonderful view of the sea which was so spectacular especially at sunset. Though there was some confusion on our reservations, the staff took...

We ended up here because everything else was full. There was a bit of confusion regarding how rooms are priced; we interpreted "twin" as a room for two ( it accommodates 2 but is charged per person) and we thought we had booked for breakfast and dinner but seems we were only down for breakfast. (Be careful of the booking...

The hotel was excellent. We had a great room with amazing views on the coastline and the mountains. Staff was very friendly and the cousine great (very Japanese). They also have a good selection of beers and wines. In town there isnt much except for a supermarket, but you really dont need much. The onsen at the hotel is nice,...

I wasn't sure what to expect when I booked this hotel and decided to choose half board. We stayed at a "destination" hotel in Japan three years ago and while the meals were tasty, it was a much larger place and all the meals were served buffet style. At JR Hotel Yakushima, we were totally pleased to be treated to...

Yakushima is about connection to nature and there are a great many camping and minshuku options. So, after you've done those, splurge and enjoy a luxurious stay to end you trip. Commanding sea views, beautiful spacious rooms, large hotel and private onsen (with sea views!) are available. Excellent Japanese hospitality - right down to letting you come down to dine...

This hotel was the best we stayed in during our 3 week trip to Japan. Our room was spacious, with a lovely seating area by the floor length windows looking out on to the sea - just beautiful. Breakfast and dinner were included, a real treat as the food was delicious. We'd notified the hotel of our various dietary requirements...

The location was beautiful, right off the water. Convenient location, Post Office is a 2min walk (only place who can withdrawal YEN), and there was a grocery store around the corner.

We stayed as part of our honeymoon, visiting Yakushima mostly for hiking for a few days. JR Yakushima was our first choice for accommodation and we're very happy with that choice.
