Yakushima Green Hotel
Yakushima | First Class
Close to Anbo Harbour, the hub of Yakushima Island, but surrounded by beautiful gardens complete with an enormous banyan tree, the Green Hotel is a serene and comfortable retreat, with vast sea views in almost all directions.
Guest rooms are decorated with a neutral palette. Japanese style rooms have traditional tatami mats throughout (you’ll notice its pleasing, grassy scent) and space for five futon beds, while western rooms have carpet or wooden flooring and beds. Singles are snug, but all other rooms are spacious, with fabulous sea views.
Proximity to Anbo Harbour means there’s a ready supply of fresh fish for the restaurant’s dinner menu, which sometimes features flying fish, a Yakushima delicacy best enjoyed with the local sake. Tuck into a multi-course meal here overlooking the East China Sea – low light pollution and big skies make for superb star gazing. From March to November there’s a buffet breakfast with both Japanese and Western dishes, while from December to February a Japanese set meal is served.
Yakushima’s natural beauty is its chief calling card and many come to hike its famous Jomon Sugi trail, which leads to a famous cedar tree thought to be around 7,200 years old. Back at the hotel, relax trek-weary muscles in the hot spring baths overlooking Mount Yakushima and the Pacific (there’s one each for men and women) or stretch out on hot slabs, known as the bedrock bath.
Friendly hotel with super sea views and a restaurant that celebrates the island’s fresh produce.
