Today, We encourage you to let down your hair and come visit Mashio for a breath of fresh air.
A heavenly Petit hotel on top of the hill
5 minute drive from Motomachi Port, 15 minute drive from Okada Port and 10 minute drive from Oshima Airport. Driving along the coast you will be deeply impressed by the beauty and splendor of the ocean as well as by the imposing mountain which stands tall at the heart of the island.
After driving to a secluded hill you will find a small hotel, Masio. The moment you leave the car, you are greeted by trees and a lush selection of seasonal vegetation. The rather large door raises a feeling of expectation.
When you open the door and walk down the stairs you will feel completely relaxed by the scenery that greets you.
One side of the wall is fully made of glass, giving you a sense of freedom as if you were actually within the surrounding woods. A panoramic view of Oshima island right here from inside the hotel. There is a nice bar where you can sit and enjoy the view all day without ever getting bored.
Mashio’s owner, a native from Oshima island with a deep appreciation of the island, welcomes you. He is a warm, genuine man who greets even newcomers to the island with a ‘welcome home’.
