Where to stay in Amami

Amami offers a plethora of beachfront resorts and modern hotels, as well as more affordable inns further back from its sunny shores. The best way to experience the city is to stay as close as possible to its natural attractions, most of which hug the coast. If you can't afford to stay along the beach in a typical Amami resort, consider an inexpensive pension or basic "ryokan" guesthouse.
