Walking through the green tunnel of trees and bamboo grove, like hidden in a forest and still close to the sea, the colorful Island Star House comes out just like as a fairy-tale. This resort inn with a star on its roof, will definitely deliver you some unique experience.

Our bamboo grove secret accommodation is on a good location. It is only 5 min driving from the Oshima airport or about 15 min from each port.
You might imagine that the atmosphere of the resort inn is connected with the sea, especially when it is only 5 min on foot from the beach, but you are going to be surprised being surrounded of green.

2 accommodations only to keep the space unique. Open the colorful gate, walk straight the corridor to the room, you will reach a brightly colored open celling released room. The living room tone seems rather calm compare to the brightly colored wall, the expansive view of the garden and sky from its wide window, will naturally adjust you to the so called island time.

You’ll see again how we are free and open because this stray garden cat became one of our face for quite a while. What we suggest you to do on a sunny day, is to look up the ceiling where you can find sparkling of Swarovski crystals strewed in form of stars. Then at night look up at the real stars, the whole sky will turn into a natural planetarium. The night sparkling will certainly bring happiness and make your heart shine.
