Sankara Hotel & Spa Yakushima

Nestled deep in the fabled island of Yakushima, where cedar tree forests unfurl across the land, you are warmly welcomed to the luxe Sankara Hotel. 

You can spend your days relaxing by the panoramic sea-facing pool, or sit down for meditation in your premium suite, alone with your thoughts and birdsongs.

Yield to the call of wilderness echoing through the island. 

Go in search of majestic waterfalls as you hike through the national park. Head towards the coast for some adrenaline-pumping water activities. This getaway is all about slowing down and savoring pleasure.
