How to Get There

sankara hotel & spa Yakushima
553 Haginoue
Yakushima, 891-4402 Japan



The most wonderful hotel I have ever stayed at.

World class food and wine. Beautiful rooms and scenery. Incredibly helpful and friendly staff.

By the last day, I made sure to ask for things in advance to avoid the staff sprinting across the pool to try and help immediately. Of course, the requests weren't urgent but the staff clearly wanted to do everything possible to make the stay perfect, and it was.

World class hotel on an incredible island

Yakushima is an astonishing island straight out of Jurassic park -forest covered massive peaks running down to a rugged coast -thousand year old cedars (Yakugusi land is a must visit at the top of the peaks)

even better is the Sankara hotel -an oasis of elegant calm -brilliant staff everywhere and a staggeringly good gourmet restaurant -should have at least one michelin star

on top of that it has a top quality spa with possibly one of the best massages we ever had

could not recommend more highly if you are in japan make a detour here especially if you like walking or nature
Just brilliant


Great escape from the town, with quality gourmet, heart-warming hospitality in sacred nature. Definitely one of the greatest indulgence in my life. Thank you Sankara for such a wonderful experience!
