Hi Jay,

It is possible to see the Milky Way from the village, but you will be able to see it much more clearly from Star Village Achi, as they turn off all of the lights at the stargazing venue.

Thank you. Are there any signs in written in English at Star Village Achi, or is everything in Japanese? Is it hard to find my way around there without using Japanese?

Hi Jay,

Most of the signage is only in Japanese at Star Village Achi, but it shouldn’t be too difficult to find your way around, especially if you follow the crowd of people.

By the way, this year, access to Star Village Achi is by advance reservation only, which you can make on their Japanese website or by purchasing special packages from nearby hotels.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
