Pelan Village

Top choice cabin in Chichi-jima

A Never-Never Land of rustic wooden cabins, walkways and ladders perched on a leafy mountainside, Pelan Village offers an eco-retreat designed for self-caterers. Free pick-up and drop-off to the ferry are provided. Also offers massage, yoga and sea kayak tours.

It's the closest you'll get to camping on the island, which is banned to protect the precious ecology. Pelon Village is committed to sustainable living, and conventional soaps and detergents are banned because water run-off goes directly to the crops.
