The luxury of spending time with nature on an island a little far from Tokyo

Cross the ocean about 180km south of Tokyo and you will find yourself in another world.

Kozushima is an island rich in nature and has been certified as a starry sky reserve. The shining stars and moon, the crystal clear sea, the bright red sunset over the sea, the blessings of the mountains and spring water...

Enjoy the "luxury" of spending a leisurely time on a Tokyo island where you can feel the daily changes and live in harmony with nature.

The concept is "Socializing Stay"

I believe that one night is definitely not enough to fully experience the rich nature of Kozushima and refresh your mind and body. After you've traveled 12 hours by boat, I don't want you to get tired from rushing around to see the tourist spots. We want you to enjoy activities such as mountain climbing and stargazing at the best timing according to the workings of nature. I want you to enjoy your entire time on Kozushima, including the time you stay at Familia. And above all, we also want to take time to talk to our guests...! This concept was born from such strong feelings.

``I could see Mt. Fuji from the top of Mt. Tenjo!'' ``Today's sunset was so beautiful!'' ``I saw the Milky Way for the first time!!'' As they shared their impressions, the conversation blossomed and people gathered together. Everyone became friends before you knew it. Not only do our guests can chat and have fun with each other, but we as staffs also want to chat with you. So please feel free to stop by our cafe.

Breakfast is included in all plans. Homemade bread and freshly brewed coffee are mainly available at the cafe bar on the first floor. ``Where should we go today?'' ``How was hiking yesterday?'' Guests will have fun sharing their experiences with each other, and we also advise on timing for sunsets and starry skies while checking the weather forecast. 

While the spacious cafe bar on the first floor is the center of the common space, all the rooms on the second floor are private rooms, so whether you are a family or alone, you can have a restful night's sleep. While eating breakfast, having a cup of coffee in hand, or having a glass of wine before going to bed, you can relax and chat whenever and however you like...We value this cozy space that is not found in resort hotels. 

Space trip with Familia Planet!

A sky full of stars shines just 3 steps from your room, 0 minutes walk!
From the terrace, you can gaze out at the night sky, where the stars sparkle like jewels, making you say, "Wow!"

On Familia's terrace, named "Starry Sky CHILL Terrace," various starry sky experiences "Familia Planet" will be held depending on the season and the moon phase.

On a starry night, enjoy the best chill time by swaying in a hammock chair. The sound of waves further enhances the relaxing effect.

On nights when the moon is shining, use binoculars or an astronomical telescope to observe the moon and planets. The moon is so bright! You'll probably be surprised. If you live in a city with bright neon lights, it's hard to notice.

You can also take pictures of the moon with your smartphone using a telescope.<br>

Autumn is recommended for planetary observation! You can clearly observe Saturn's rings. This was a great experience for everyone, regardless of generation or nationality!

On summer nights, children on summer vacation can count shooting stars together under the flashy Milky Way! From around June, the thick part of the Milky Way becomes easier to observe.

If you want to look great in photos, summer to autumn is recommended. In winter and early spring, when the nights are still cold, check out the clouds and go to the terrace. When it gets cold, how about some hot chocolate at a cafe? As we talked, looking up at the night sky while experiencing the cold weather will surely remain in your memories!

FamiliA, LLC operates ``Vacation House Familia'' on Kozushima, and engages in activities that go beyond the realm of lodging in order to convey the charm of the region and preserve its culture. In January 2024, the Kozushima tourism app [Marutto! Kozushima] released! The app provides a completely new sightseeing experience with two functions: ``Kozushima Sugoroku game (Snake and Ladders)'', which allows you to learn more about the island before a travel, and ``Dramatic Audio Guide'', which can only be experienced by those who have visited the site. Of course, this app is available in English. We aim to let customers not only from Japan but also from overseas know the true beauty of Kozushima and create opportunities for them to become friends with the island's people.
