Regarding older reviews, this guesthouse must have undergone renovations! Now, free Wifi is available and the whole lobby, lounge & restaurant area looks very modern, bright & cozy. The sento can be locked and used privately (which is heaven for couples & families since most bath houses in Japan separate the genders) and provides a wonderful view over beach &... More

Stunning peaceful location overlooking a sandy beach with great sunsets. Each room has a wooden deck with seating. Rooms are small and a little dated, but quiet and comfortable. Staff are friendly but limited English language support. Food is very good. No credit cards accepted - bring cash!

I booked this place via YES Yakushima and I spent there 3 nights in July 2015. Marine Blue is the only house on that part of the Inakahama beach, famous for the sea turtles laying eggs there.

I really recommend this hotel, watching the beautiful sunset/sunrise was really lovely. The hotel food was really good and the staff were really helpful and friendly.

We stayed 4 nights at Marine Blue and picked up the hotel essentially because of its location on the beach. And the location was great !

Thank you for staying Marine Blue Yakushima. We are glad when you enjoy the Yakushima, We were worried also because of the different food culture. Although it is possible in the season of sea turtles, see the birth of life in July and August, and there might be regulations for environmental protection. Car rental is convenient to sightseeing.
