We’ve spent four days in this nice and cozy place and had all information from Yuki the tourist could need before and during our stay. The house is very close to a bus stop. All clean and tidy. In spite of that Yuki is very kind and helpful, she makes a big variety of very delicious foods for breakfast and...

I visited YAKUSHIMA second times and I visited Pension Blue Drop second times too. The room is made from wood, cooking is made from home-grow vegetable and fish owner caught. The guest house is near by Onoma-hot spring, Hirauchi-hot spring, Kurio-coast. I watched egg laying of sea turtle at Kurio-coast. The owner carefully explained about Yakushima. I want to visit...

Yuki has been such an amazing host who helped us out from renting our car to providing suggestions on where to visit, placing reservation for chopsticks making workshop. She is fluent in English and communication was such a breeze. As this is like an Airbnb setting, it is a shared bathroom and guests won't be able to shower after 10pm....

Everything was great. Yuki helped us book car rental too. Communication was prompt and easy. Highly recommended for Budget Travellers ! As the return ferry was cancelled due to heavy rain and strong wind, they were able to accommodate us for an additional night. Really thankful for this.

At the end of a month's touring, the stay at the pension run by Yuki and Toru was like a relaxed breath out... No hassles, no problems, comfortable accommodation in beautifully cedar-scented rooms (ours had its own patio), spotless toilets and shower, quite superb food - fresh and flexibly prepared.

The place was quaint but very homely. The service by the host Yuki was probably the best we've ever experienced. She'll go out of her way to make your trip an enjoyable one by giving advice on the sights and sounds of Yakushima and also advise us of the weather and any road closures. Meals are freshly prepared and delicious...
