As a hotel where you can experience Yoron Island, you will get to know the lifestyle and culture of residents in cooperation with the local community. What do people on the island eat, see, and how do they spend their time? By living in a culture that is completely different from your usual life, you may ask yourself how it would have been if you were born here. How would you see the world around you?
Unlike a package plan from a travel company, allowing you to only visit the touristic sights in a rush; choose to stay a bit longer and experience the culture of the local area and enjoy everything the inhabitants have to share in their way of living. We want to create a place where you will notice small details you always took for granted or never even noticed before, something that will hopefully affect your life in a good way. Shall you choose to take such a trip, you may not be the same when you go back…
Red-tiled roof, wooden pillars anchored in stone, crystal clear waters just outside the windows. You can feel the authentic culture of Yoron Island in the old-fashioned architectural style of the building. The rocks inside the hotel may appear rough and inconvenient, but will give you the primitive feeling of an earthy way of life. If you gaze outside, the magnificent sea view spreads before your eyes from all directions, emphasized by quiet waves or stormy waters, and you will enjoy fresh appreciation of the building’s architecture as the light changes.
We hope to make Shima Hotel a place where you can enjoy the extraordinary daily life of Yoron Island.
The hotel can welcome a maximum of 10 persons and is available for privatization according to your needs.
You can enjoy the spacious bathroom, and freely use the tableware, kitchen accessories, the microwave and the fridge to cook simple dishes.
Then, just relax in the vast green garden and make great souvenirs around a barbecue in front of the sunset and under the starry night sky!
