Convenient for the ferry. Large room. Basic.

Response from Ayako:
A room with a view of the sea is the largest. This is not a hotel, but a guest house, so it is a minimal facility to stay ;)

Location is fantastic for anyone going to Naoshima and/or Teshima. Has all the basic amenities and thoughtful touches to the place. Ayako was a kind and very thoughtful hostess!

This room is in a perfect location for visiting naoshima and the other art islands! The room is only a 3 minute walk from the dock. On top of this they left us some very handy booklets making it clear when the ferry times were and what to do on the islands. The room is very clean…

Stayed for one night after visiting Naoshima Island. Our room was huge compared to other rooms we’ve stayed in Japan but didn’t feel that homey with empty walls. The room and communal areas were all quite cold. There is heating in the room but as so big took ages to heat up…

This room is a very big room with a view of the sea. It takes 10 minutes for heating. There are two toilets in total. After you stayed, the window was improved. It became double glazed windows. The outside sound is quiet with this.

Fantastic value. it's like a fun hostel experience but with all large private rooms. Access to ferries literally across the road and a few minutes walk from train station. Loads of useful info provided to plan your visits to the islands and beyond. Only negative is that the place…

Right opposite Uno port where you catch the ferry to Naoshima so an ideal place to stay if you want to visit the art islands. Ayako was very helpful with suggesting vegetarian places for us to eat.

Ayako’s place was exactly as advertised – in fact, the room was much more spacious than I expected! You really can’t beat the location – so handy for the boat to Naoshima and the train from Okayama, as well as loads of great eating places. It was a little noisy but we expected…
