sankara hotel & spa Yakushima
Fantastic service on a unique island
Sankara is a great choice for yakushima, and my recommendation for anyone traveling there. The service is top flight. Our butler/concierge Sam was helpful, joyful, and outright hospitable with just the rain got amount of fussing-he intuited our needs perfectly. Food is fantastic-seafood fresh and prepared with nuance. The young (very young!) pastry chef is not only a genius, but sweet-she has an amazing career ahead of her. Bacon (breakfast) is of note. All this because half pension is included. Room is large and comfortable which is not of little mportance with all the rain n that yakushima gets. Bravo!
