Toshi was a great host and I really enjoyed my stay in Aoshima. The work was very minimal, and you always have a lot of free time during your day to enjoy what Aoshima has to offer. There are many onsens, beautiful views, and good surf spots within walking distance of the accommodation. When you have time off, Miyazaki (and Kyushu) is a cool place to travel around. I had a super dope time overall and everything was exactly as described online. Toshi and his wife are very kind and understanding, and are both super cool people.



Toshi is an amzing guy!
he is super nice and welcoming and whenever he has time he would like to teach you how to surf!
when I had an emergency in Israel, and I had to go back emidiatly, Toshi totally understood and he was very supportive!
I hope we meet again soon! I woud defenetly love to come and stay again with hooju aoshima guesthouse!
thank you so much Toshi!!



I totally racommend this place.
Toshi, the owner, is an incredible, kind, helpful, person. And his wife Fu too.
I would say that in Aoshima all the people are amazing like them and the town is amazing too!
Perfect to surf, to chill, but also to explore.
There are many things too see there around and if you like nature you will love it all!
The job is easy and Toshi will help you a lot to learn and to work.
And there is a high probability to meet amazing travellers from all over the world.
Thank you for this experience Toshi, hope to see you again!

I had an amazing stay at Toshi’s place in Aoshima! I worked reception, which was great because I was able to speak Japanese quite a bit. The work wasn’t bad at all, and I met a lot of really interesting guests! We had surf boards we could use so I was able to surf every day. The hostel is within walking distance to the beach so it was great. There are also bikes to use to access farther away spots. Also Toshi will take you to a grocery store if you need. I had an amazing month in Aoshima and Toshi is so nice and helpful and accommodating. I will be back for sure, next time for longer!



The month I spent in Aoshima was great! The other travellers were amazing and we had so much fun together :) Toshi were very kind to us and always willing to help everyone. If you love being surrounded by nature, this is the right place for you!
