I stayed 3 nights at Pension Blue Drop and I wish I could have stayed longer. Yuki runs the Pension with her husband and she could not be more accommodating or welcoming. She really goes above and beyond for her guests from arranging rental cars, providing really useful tips for your stay and anything else you might need. She's also...

We’ve spent four days in this nice and cozy place and had all information from Yuki the tourist could need before and during our stay. The house is very close to a bus stop. All clean and tidy.

I visited YAKUSHIMA second times and I visited Pension Blue Drop second times too. The room is made from wood, cooking is made from home-grow vegetable and fish owner caught. The guest house is near by Onoma-hot spring, Hirauchi-hot spring, Kurio-coast. I watched egg laying of sea turtle at Kurio-coast. The owner carefully explained about Yakushima. I want to visit...

Yuki has been such an amazing host who helped us out from renting our car to providing suggestions on where to visit, placing reservation for chopsticks making workshop.

Everything was great. Yuki helped us book car rental too. Communication was prompt and easy. Highly recommended for Budget Travellers ! As the return ferry was cancelled due to heavy rain and strong wind, they were able to accommodate us for an additional night. Really thankful for this.

“I think there is not much difference with the rooms. We were on the road side of the house but there is not much traffic in Yakushima and road noise was not a problem.”
