Three nights on Chichijima during Golden Week”
Together with a friend I spent three nights at Shanti Bungalow and we had a fantastic time there!
At first, I was sceptical as many other accommodations were already booked out during Golden Week, but I was very happy to find this amazing lodging, which was well worth the price we paid for our bungalow room. The place is family-run and on our day of arrival by the Ogasawaramaru ferry, our host welcomed us at the pier and took care of our luggage.
The Shanti Bungalows are on the south side of the island, about 8km or 15 minutes by car distanced from the main settlement. In spite of this rather remote location, it can be accessed easily by bus or, in or case, by rental bikes in about 40 minutes. Its remote location pays off as the bungalow buildings, consisting of two bungalow huts for guests, a kitchen house, shower and toilet facilities as well as the owner's house, are surrounded by quite steep and green-covered hills; a dramatic scenery! It is also quite close to Kominato and Kopepe Beach, two of the most beautiful spots on Chichijima.
The room we booked was spotless clean and spacious enough for three people. I was a bit worried, as there was no AC installed, but the wooden structure with high ceilings provided enough natural cooling and we had a pleasant sleep. Both the kitchen and the shower and toilet facilities were more than enough and always very clean. Also the huge kitchen provides enough equipment to prepare your own food.
The owner family was very welcoming and explained us a lot about the island. They also made sure that guests from different groups would interact with each other which provided a friendly and relaxed atmosphere. As they also organise tours on the island, we found several options to participate in diverse activities. On one day, we joined an all-day sea-kayaking tour, which was a spectacular experience! The owners also appeared flexible enough to drive us around the island and even fetch us from town when we had missed the last bus
