Toshi and Fu-chan are such kind-hearted people! This place is very special and I cannot describe how grateful I am to have had to opportunity to live here, so please be kind and respectful as they deserve it the most. They sometimes organize events where I could meet local people and I could use the surfboards they have. The work is very fair and there is plenty of time to chill, surf, relax at the beach, walk around, visit shrines, go to the city or hitchhike to sightseeing spots around Miyazaki. If I come back to Japan I will definitely visit <3

I had an absolutely wonderful experience. Toshi and his wife Foo made it a delight to live and work with them in Aoshima. During a time I needed accommodation during a difficult time in the world they made it a home from home, somewhere I miss already. I was glad to work whenever I was needed just to give back to them all that I could. I would recommend this experience to anyone: if you want to surf, explore Miyazaki or simply relax and live cheap in a seaside paradise this is everything you could want and so much more. Much love for everything you guys❤️

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.

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!
