I’d like to send my fishing gear/large bags head of me so that I can travel light on the day I depart. How do I do that?
Contact the hotel ahead of time to send your baggage to the address noted below. Choose Kuroneko Yamato TA-Q-BIN (Yamato Transport) or Yu Pack (post office) to avoid extra charge for remote island deliveries. Charges are the same as shipping to other parts of the Tokyo metropolis. Do not send valuable or breakable items. Cargo sent to Hachijojima is normally sent by boat overnight from Tokyo Takeshiba Terminal or Shibaura Terminal. Allow an extra day compared to baggage sent within the city of Tokyo.
Weather and other conditions can affect ferry schedules, so please allow extra time to send your items. (Carriers other than Yamato Transport and the Post Office send baggage by relay, which means it may take even more time to arrive). Please note that the hotel takes no responsibility whatsoever for late or lost baggage. Remember to put the name under which you made a reservation on your baggage, along with your reservation date. This helps to prevent loss or a scenario where your baggage is unintentionally picked up by the wrong person.

Basically, we have no rooms facing the ocean in the Main Building. We do not take requests for room numbers, but please inform us of any special requests when you make your reservation, such as a preference for a second-floor room (e.g. you want to avoid stairs).

If you have a food allergy, please tell us about it when you make your reservation. Please note that we may not be able to accommodate guests with severe allergies.

Please consult with a specialist physician to make the best decision for yourself. Also note that the ingredients noted on the menu are subject to change without notice.

We are very sorry but we do not offer non-smoking rooms. We do our best to eliminate the smell of tobacco smoke.

Wi-Fi Internet is available not only in all rooms, but also in shared space such as the lobby, the dining room, etc. (However, we cannot guarantee that guest computers will work with hotel Internet lines/reception).

Can I eat in my room?

Reservations are required for most tours. If you intend to join a tour, we recommend that you make your reservation as soon as you decide on your plans.

We can prepare it for you as long as you bring it to the front desk by 3 pm. After that time, we are unable to incorporate it into dinner. A fee of about \1000 (pre-tax) per kilogram applies. Note that the fee may vary depending on type of fish, size, and how it is cooked (frying, frilling, stewing, etc.). Please feel free to inquire.
Can we swim in the ocean in September? Are there jellyfish?
We've never heard about people being unable to swim in Hachijojima due to jellyfish. However, though the island is tropical, the weather can be cooler in September, so we do recommend that people be careful swimming in the ocean during this time.
