It's an old house abandoned for a decade. You can't expect nice modern equipment though, there's something lost in modern houses. Maybe you'll recall a summer vacation in your childhood, visiting grandparents' house at countryside.

This is not my business, but for my pleasure. I welcome 1 or 2 guest groups per month. No more than 3.

You can hardly find free wi-fi spot on this island. I recommend you get a free or prepaid SIM card before you come here. Check up on "Japan Welcome SIM."

懐かしい雰囲気の玄関から、お部屋に通してもらい、奄美伝統の飲み物のミキをいただきました。 ねこちゃんも、程よい距離を保ちつつも、朝にはいつの間にか一緒の布団の横でかわいい寝顔を見せてくれてました。 立地も空港からほど近く、鶏飯で有名なみなとやには、歩いても行ける距離です。 島の北部めぐりの拠点に良いと思います。
