Touru's place was incredibly authentic and located in a very peaceful area of the island. It is perfect for people who look for very calm holiday and who wish to experience living in a traditional Japanese home. Although the car rental is a necessity to get to the house, it is a great way of traveling around the island generally. The most beautiful beaches and coral is only 5 minutes drive away. We enjoyed our stay very much, but there is a possibility you may find some tropical (altho totally harmless) spiders and such. The only thing we missed was the internet, but it turned out to be an advantage as we enjoyed chatting to each other without being distracted by the world wide web.
