Cosy and quiet guest house near to the coast”

The guest house is a small and cosy place like home. It is close to the coast and the surroundings is very dark and quiet at night, you can hear insects' sound and see the twinkling stars. In the guest house, everything is clean and tidy. The host Manabu is very kind, he remind me that I forgot to turn off my car light, and he introduced a delicious Japanese restaurant to me.

Excellent location, cheap, and friendly!”

The owner is super helpful and friendly. When I couldn't locate the building I gave him a call and he came out and drove my car to the parking spots! Then he showed a map of local restaurants which was really appreciated after a long day of traveling. There is plenty to eat and do in the area (if you like beautiful capes and relaxing beaches!), and if you have a car, getting to the north is super easy! Met some really nice people here and never had a problem getting in the one shower or bathroom. I wish I stayed here longer!

Nice and comfortable bedding”

The bed was clean and comfortable. There are 4 bunk beds in the female dorm, not crowded or noisy. My roommates are Japanese or students in Japn, so I believe they behave better to respect others. The host is nice and friendly. There are one bathroom and one toilet, well-equipped. Just need to grap your time for bathing while the guest house is fully booked.

The best guesthouse for travelers!”

I traveled here for freediving. This house have everything I need; clean bed, relaxed mood, hot shower, washing machine, and outdoor shower to clean up my gears! And the host, he’s quite flexible and super kind. I wish I could do some other activities that he provide. The location is little bit isolated from famous points like Cape Maeda but not too far. You can get there in 10 mins by car. Instead, you can enjoy the Nagahama beach in 10 secs. Also a hidden place for locals, Senaha point. I definitely want to come again, with my freediving friends.

Comfortable and lovely stay”

Very peaceful neighborhood with just less than a minute to the ocean, helpful and kind owner, lovely dog, comfortable bed, cozy environment in the bathroom area with free towel for your stay, eco friendly amenities can be used, and several lovely local shops and restaurants in the neighborhood. If you are keen on local awamori, there is Zanpa distillery/shop just next to bus terminal to buy some souvenirs. Cape Zanpa and coast side is also nice to walk around and enjoy sunset on sunny day. I stayed for a few days but it wasn’t enough to relax and explore locals, recommended to stay longer if you can!
