*UPDATED JUNE 20th.
We have reopened the villa since June 1st.
Therefore, our new policy for use of the property has been updated by this pandemic.
Please follow them for your safety.
1. We limit it to one group that can be used per day until the end of June*.
This is because multiple groups should not meet and share the property.
Even though, in a group made by some people until 10 is allowed.
Although, when people get together from different prefectures such as friends,
It sounds not really safe for all. Please, gather the members of the group from your family living together
or live in the same prefecture in Japan unless you need it.
*For the situation in July & August, we can not limit it as much as June because it's our season of business.
Therefore, we will ask you to keep the temperature check and hand wash every time when you are all in the communal area.
2. Do not go to the local grocery store on the island unless you need it.
*Please bring what you need from the mainland.
Although, you can go to the restaurant by the beach.
*When guests stay longer they will need some extra shopping here.
Therefore, When you really need to buy groceries at the shop,
Please corporate us to go to the shop alone in the afternoon.
Because, most of the elderly people here are going shopping in the morning.
3. Do not pass the residential area.
*When you come to the villa, please pass the beach side also when leaving.
DO NOT TAKE ANY WAY IN RESIDENTIAL AREA UNLESS YOU NEED IT.
4. About the temperature check,
We would be grateful if you could ask your people to measure their body temperature
right after waking up and before going to bed as 2 times in a day.
At that time, considering the normal heat of each person, please let us know if you have a fever of 37.2 degrees or more.
5. Please keep the social distance in between all the others all the time when you leave your home until you are back.
This is what we regulate for the due.
Hope it works for your safety.
If you have any suggestions, please help us to make it better!!
