About Yuumi House

Yuumi House is a traditional Ryukyu cottage situated on Zamami in the Kerama Islands. Its origins date back over 175 years, but the interior has been carefully reconstructed and refurbished with both tatami and wood panel flooring and paper screen doors that help maintain a bright and cheerful atmosphere. The open-plan design allows for cool airflow even on the hottest summer day.

The cottage also retains its traditional wall made of stone and coral and displays the distinctive red tiled roof of the Ryukyu era. Located in quiet Asa Hamlet by the sea, Yuumi House is surrounded by purest nature, making it the ideal destination for rest and recuperation or just for getting away from it all.

Yuumi House is not operating as a hotel or guest house, but rather a rest centre for those seeking recuperation or to take a break from a less than healthy lifestyle. We especially welcome guests who are interested in Ryukyu culture and want to experience a taste of life as it was hundreds of years ago.

If you are happy to share the space and amenities under Yuumi House’s roof, then this is the place for you! However, if private accommodation is more your style, we recommend looking elsewhere. If you are interested in staying at Yuumi House, please make an enquiry via the reservation form.

※Please note that we give booking preference to guests who are most in need of recovery or undergoing convalescence. We thank you for your cooperation.
