Lucky Gate / Rest House

Lucky Gate is the name of a local video rental shop on Kume Island. There are actually two branches, one in the Ohara Area, north on route 242, and in the Eef Area just north of the Eef Beach parking area.

In addition to video rentals, the Eef Area Lucky Gate also rents scooters and has an attached Hostel/Guest House.

Scooter Rentals

Since Kume Island is relatively large, having an easy way to get around is important if you want to see everything. On Sunny days, a scooter can be a fun and convinient way to travel. Scooters are available in several time incriments and include helmets. You’ll need a Japanese driver’s liscense or an international permit to rent a scooter.

Kumejima Guest House

The Kumejima Guest House is a small building next to the Lucky Gate store. It’s right next to the parking area for Eef Beach so it is super convinient for beach goers, and is also in an area full of stores, restaurants, and other attractions. Please provide a name, phone number, and dates of stay when making a reservation via the number above.

The guest house is 2,000 yen a night per person and includes TV, LAN Cable internet, Shower room, and toilet. There are Air Conditioners, but please be aware that the power is controlled by a coin machine. 100 yen buys 90 minutes. You can pay several hours (for sleeping, etc) in advance but there are no refunds. Eight hours would cost 500 yen (still cheaper than a full price hotel).
