The accommodation scene is dominated by privately run minshuku (guesthouses). Not a lot of English is spoken, but locals are becoming increasingly used to foreign guests. If you prefer hotel-style facilities, Benesse House hotel is your only real option. Alternatively, stay in Okayama or Uno port on the mainland, or Takamatsu in Shikoku, and visit as a day trip. Rates increase at most places during high season.
