JR Hotel Yakushima

Yakushima | Superior

From its clifftop perch on the southern coast of the island of Yakushima, the JR Hotel enjoys enviable uninterrupted ocean views, with Mount Mocchomu as a backdrop. You can’t escape the views (not that you’d want to): every aspect of the property has been designed to maximise the stunning natural setting.

Spacious rooms are decorated in soft, neutral tones and benefit from plenty of natural light through large windows. Choose from a view towards the World Natural Heritage Site of Mount Mocchomu or overlooking the ocean. The Japanese-style Premium Rooms, as well as being double the size of the Standard rooms, additionally feature a private natural hot spring.

After a day exploring the natural wonders of Yakushima, relieve aching muscles with a Thai massage or soak in the therapeutic waters of the hotel’s hot springs, from where you can enjoy sweeping views of your natural surroundings. Panoramic ocean views can also be enjoyed from the restaurant, as you tuck into Japanese and western dishes created from locally sourced, seasonal ingredients.

As an aside, we thought you may be interested to know that the JR Hotel rather conveniently features a small laundry room with three coin-operated washing machines, which could come in handy…
