Minshuku in Tanegashima

Run by a friendly, English-speaking woman, charming Nagareboshi has spotless, spacious rooms and a very laid-back vibe. From the pier road in Nishi-no-Omote, walk to the traffic light and jog around the right side of the post office, then walk uphill, bearing right at the top of the steps. Look for the sign, and veer right towards the temple.
