Our proposal


Welcome to Sankara hotel & spa Yakushima.
Consulting with a butler about your stay in Yakushima will be your first step at sankara hotel. Whatever your interests may be, give into the relaxing flow of the island—walking in the ancient rainforest, looking for a delectable meal unique to the island or just enjoying a luxury vacation.
Leave your burdens behind, let purifying Yakushima cleanse your soul.


In 1980 an area of 18,958 ha (46,850 acres) was designated a UNESCO Man and the Biosphere Reserve. In 1993, 10 hectares (25 acres) of wetland at Nagata-hama was designated a Ramsar Site. It is the largest nesting ground for the endangered loggerhead sea turtle in the North Pacific.

Yakushima’s unique remnant of warm/temperate ancient forest has been a natural World Heritage Site since 1993. In the Wilderness core area (12.19 square kilometres (3,010 acres)) of the World Heritage Site, no record of past tree cutting can be traced.The island is visited by 300,000 tourists every year.


Restarants & Spa


In the old days in Yakushima, they used to say, “10 days at sea, 10 days in the village and 10 days in the mountains.” People plowed the fields in the village and received nature’s blessings from the sea and mountains. We, at sankara, made the blessings of the island into sankara cuisine to provide a delectable taste that can only be enjoyed here.


A serene atmosphere reminiscent of deep green woods. The illuminated open kitchen looks like a stage. Guests can savor a natural French full-course menu while watching Chef’s artistic culinary skills and enjoying a conversation with him. Tables overlooking the ocean for couples and private rooms perfect for important occasions are also available.
