B&B in Kagoshima with vegan/macrobiotic breakfast and dinner. Only such place on the island of Yakushima. You can see the sunrise and the moon rise. Directions: from the Miyanoura port: go south, it takes 50 mins and from the Anbou port: go south, it take 10 mins. Address in Japanese: 鹿児島県熊毛郡屋久島町麦生311-91.

not a vegetarian place but they're happy to meet special requests like vegan, no onion/garlic, etc

tasty food, elegantly presented, good portion size (several courses per meal)

pretty location on cliff overlooking ocean

private cabins for rent with meals included; somewhat pricey compared to staying at average local guest houses; more frugal veg visitors to the island might want to rent a bed or a room at Chinryu An, Sen no Ie, or another place where they can cook their own meals. See http://chinryu.com/index2.html or http://www17.ocn.ne.jp/~sennoie/

narrow range of meal times may cramp your plans for daily activities on the island; must be home in time for dinner if you stay here

friendly service; some staff speak some English

semi-communal dining setting; you might or might not have a chance to make new friends at the dinner table

not the easiest place to find; on the main road around the island, look for a small sign with the restaurant's name that indicates the side road to turn off at

tall people, remember to duck when walking through doorways and hallways or receive a firm reminder on your head that you're in a country designed for shorter people
