Amagiso Ryokan and Minshuku

Amagiso Ryokan is the newest and cleanest accommodation on the island. Room rates are 4,500 yen per person per night (no meals). These are newly furnished rooms. There is one room with 3 beds in it, all other rooms have futons. They also have a room that can fit 5 or more people on futons. Japanese style bath and nice showers.. Western toilets down the hall. 
Amagiso is on the beach and the views are excellent. It is a quiet alternative. There are no cooking facilities and they only serve meals upon request during the high season. 
Amagiso also has an older 2-story "minshuku" (the building on the right side in the picture, ryokan on the left) for groups or those on a budget. This is Japanese style, with three 6-tatami mat rooms on the first floor and three 6-tatami mat rooms on the second floor. The rooms are separated by Japanese style sliding doors. We recommend two people per 6-mat room but up to four people can stay in a squeeze. Sheets, pillows and futons provided. The price is 4,000 yen per person per night.There is a small bath and shower and a Western style toilet. All rooms face the sea.
There is a BBQ area which guests at both the ryokan and the minshuku can use but you must purchase your own charcoal (available at the local store).

A restaurant and bar which offers no-frills accommodations, San-chan's is the cheapest minshuku on the island and has five rooms (not all facing the beach). Rooms are 3,000 yen per person per night. Add 500 yen if you want breakfast. Food can also be bought separately from their menu, "izakaya" style.

San-chan's has two rooms with two single beds in them and flat screen TVs. The other three rooms have futons.

All rooms include shared Western toilet and Japanese style bath. Fun, local atmosphere. Free internet and wireless for those who bring their own laptops.

Please note that San-chan's is a back-packer style, budget accommodation. If you like to drink and hobnob with the locals, this is the place for you. If you find yourself saying things like "I'm not as young as I used to be," this place is probably not for you. Emphasis on rustic, no frills.
