Where to stay

Like most island destinations, the town of Shodoshima-cho has a number of resorts and hotels to choose from in the city center and by the seaside. However, you'll also find a few affordable guesthouses as an alternative to the luxurious options. For young backpackers or others traveling on a budget, consider staying at a youth hostel among the olive groves. Be sure to reserve your room in advance during peak season, which consists of the summer months, as well as October and November, when the leaves change color. At other times the island remains very quiet, making it easier to find accommodations.
