After a 3 day hike across Yakushima, we arrived at Chinryu-An completely soaked and we found a peaceful place. We were the only guests and we had the place to dry all our stuffs after a few laundry. The common room is really peaceful, it's just the kind of place where you sit down and relax. The onoaida onsen nearby...

Chinryu was very caring and inclusive. I didn't speak much Japanese, but he always made sure to check on me and helped me join in the evening activities. He also gave great advice on things to do and made renting the car there very easy. The guesthouse is removed from the busier areas, so it is very quiet and relaxing....

This guest house and its hosts are absolutely incredible! The house itself is right by the ocean with lots to do near it, has an onsen 5 minutes walk away, and is absolutely gorgeous since it's made entirely out of wood. The hosts are very friendly, making me feel like I was staying with family which was so wonderful. They...

Chinryu-An guesthouse is the perfect starting point if you are planning the Yakushima traverse (3 days hike). Literally a 5-minute from the trailhead where the lovely — although a bit rough on the edges – Onaida onsen is located. The owner Chinryu provides useful recommendations and plenty of extra services to make your stay easier (snorkeling gear rental, gas cartridges,...

We stay here on October 2015 to do the 3 days traverse of Yakushima (from Onaida Onsen to Miyanoura). Chinryu, the owner and Puchuko (who cooked the amazing diner) are very helpful and friendly. He has been in the place for 20 years and knows very well all around. His website is a reference on Yakushima's info, even if is...

With my two kids we stayed here for four nights in August. We enjoyed the beaches and made some beautiful hikes in the mountains. This guesthouse is in the middle of nature and all made of wood. The private tatami room was clean and comfortable, the rest of the facilities, shower and bathroom, were clean and well maintained. The breakfast...

I had such an excellent time at Chinryu An! Chinryu went out of his way to help me make it to Yakushima succesfully. I speak no Japanese so I couldn't navigate the Japanese ferry website. Chinryu was kind enough to call the ferry service to make a reservation for me. I got an excellent sample of tasty traditional food that...

After months travel around Japan, me and my husband were happy to find ourselves at the most inviting ceder guest house you can imagine. The ceder tree gives the house a wonderfull calming smell and it was good for the travelling soul to be close to the forest. During our stay we enjoyed nature walks in the old fairytale woods...

My Japanese is very poor and I couldn't be more grateful to Chinryu-An for the help they provided me! I was picked up from the ferry port and brought to the Eco lodge and was amazed at how beautiful, simple, and tranquil it was. Chinryu-An manages to blend comfort and nature in a lovely dance. The wooden decor, wall of...

I stayed in 2007 at chinryu's. At the time i fell in love with yakushima and the minchuku. The owner and his girlfriend kept order in the house, and like i read in other reviews, were particular about certain things. For me, the simple but beautifully minimal way was somehow in harmony with the surrounding landscape and my purpose of...
