We loved our stay at Kuraya! I have stayed at other Inn on Naoshima, and this one is the best! The host is so sweet, and made a delicious breakfast! The restrooms were large and very clean. Lots of hot water! They let us keep...More

Hostess was lovely and made a nice breakfast. As for the rest, we quickly decided to tell ourselves this was like camping, so we were able to have the right attitude about the very spartan accommodations: used-looking bedding on the cold, hard tatami floor, light...More

離れの2階奥の部屋に宿泊しました。家プロジェクトのエリア内にあり、翌日以降豊島方面に向かうなら非常に便利な立地です。 玄関の一室に器量のよい猫が4匹?住んでいます。客室に入ってくることはまずありません。電話予約の際に猫がいることは伝えていただいているし、室内は清潔に保たれています。 夜は隣室の外国人カップルの話し声が聞こえてくることもありまりましたが、常識の範囲内でしょう。4室あり全て間取りが異なる様です。2階の窓からは港への路地が開けており、夕方にはオーナーが猫たちの散歩をしている様子が見られたりとなかなか風情がありました。 The landlady speaks excellent English compared to other locals, charges are quite cheap 4000-4500yen per person. other than that you'd get what you'd expect from a cats-owning-traditional-Japanese-building-turned-into hostel. Yes there're cats in the building but you will be warned when you make...More
