Accommodation in Japan

There are three types of accommodation you can choose from; Hotels, pensions and minshuku (a family-run private lodging where dinner and breakfast are served). The Japanese-style room has tatami, a kind of straw mat, futon, the Japanese style mattress, and the furo, the Japanese style bath. Some accommodations do have Western-style rooms as well.

Once you open the front door it's like entering home. Kirimaru-house offers affordable and comfortable condominiums daily, weekly or monthly in a lush Island-style setting just across from the front beach (maehama) and within walking distance ( 5 minutes ) to all the shops, restaurants, activities and harbour ( where the ship arrives) in the village of Ohmura in beautiful sub-tropical Chichijima Ogasawara.

Comfortable studios. The condominium-type room has a kitchen, fridge, air conditioning, color TV & video, bath/shower
