    Important Notice to all visitors to Yakushima

    The hotels listed on the YES! Yakushima website are all locally owned.  YES do not operate with nationally-owned hotels.   When booking a Yakushima hotel / accommodation with YES rather than an international booking agency then you will be helping our island economy and inhabitants. 

    If you choose to book your Yakushima hotel via an international booking agent then a significant commission is paid to these booking agents from the hotel booking fee and this means less revenue for our island economy.  To give a rudimentary understanding of how much revenue our island loses when visitors book with the large international booking agencies then take a look at the figures. 

    • The average yearly total number of visitors to Yakushima is 250,000 people and they stay for an average of 3 nights.  The average accommodation fee is approximately $100 per night from which the international booking agent takes about 20% commission.
    • 250,000 visitors x 3 nights x $100 x 20% = $15,000,000

    This is $15 million that could otherwise be used to employ more local people and be re-invested in our local island economy.  If you wish to make a difference to the places you visit then if there is an alternative to the large international booking agencies then please consider opting to book with the alternative and support a more sustainable economic future for our local community. 

    If you have already booked a Yakushima hotel via an international booking agent and if the hotel is listed on the YES website then we can ask the hotel to move your booking to YES.  You would then enjoy a number of benefits including

    1.  the YES ferry reservation service – if your hotel booking amounts to more than 40,000 yen
    2. the YES English support service where we can convey messages etc to your Yakushima service provider
    3. the knowledge that you are fully supporting our island economy.

    Choose YES! when planning your visit to Yakushima.

    YES can also arrange water activities, rental services and our highly recommended tours for your Yakushima visit.
