Located among tranquil Japanese gardens, Ryokan Sanga features spacious open-air hot spring baths and classic Japanese-style guest rooms with a relaxing ambiance. We had a terrific time at this inn. I loved the old dark wood of the interior. Our room was next to the stream, very peaceful. Our dinner was over the top amazing, and relaxing afterwards in a private bath of natural hot water made for a memorable stay.
Located along Tanohara River and surrounded by tranquil nature in Kurokawa Onsen hot spring area, Oku no Yu Ryokan offers charming Japanese-style accommodations and various hot spring baths. We loved the many outdoor shared and private Onsen baths, surrounded by nature. The kids loved the swimming pool and the cave onsen. It was lovely to have a women-only time for the big shared onsen. The staff was so friendly and kind. We hope to return one day!
Located in the center of Kurokawa Onsen, Oyado Noshiyu offers outdoor and indoor hot-spring baths, Japanese-style accommodations and a traditional teahouse. This place is amazing! Definitely will have to come back again. It felt like I was staying at a museum. I love the aesthetic. The hot springs were great and the food was delicious!
Located in Minamioguni, 30 miles from Yufuin Motorcycle Museum, Hanare no Yado Hanagokoro has accommodations with a restaurant, free private parking and a garden. Very nice place, we had two private baths (indoor and outdoor) and there is a public bath near the houses. The food was delicious and the staff is lovely ! I highly recommend.
Located in the Kurokawa hot-spring area, Yamabiko Ryokan offers public indoor/outdoor hot-spring baths and some rooms with mountain or river views. Private onsens! Staff are very friendly and eager to help. Kaiseki dinner and breakfast were very delicious.
Great place to go onsen hopping. Lots of ryokans with different types of onsens to chose from. Easier to get to in a car but not impossible by local buses. This area is in the Aso National Park. Lots of walk trails and beautiful weather in November.
It’s a bit unfair going there you get this amazing view of the area very steep mountains alongside lakes and riverbeds. Then when you are finally driving home, you get slap with a different view of the mountains and lakes riverbeds but it’s 10x better than you remember from driving up. It will be very hard to leave.
If you would like to try really nice ryokan in the place close to nature and in a small town with really traditional vibe (architecture, food) this is the place for you. Good to escape from noises of the big cities, rest form work and forget about problems.
There are many beautiful onsens that you can enjoy all over the town. The atmosphere is really good. Well mix between traditional and modern that makes your stays very enjoyable and comfortable. Really recommend this place for those who love onsen.
The ryokans here all seem to have very high standards of services, and having chinese/english speaking staff onboard. The village centre has some nice pastries and restaurants but do note they do not open for dinner, so book your dinners with the ryokans you are staying with. There are a couple of walking trails to work off some calories which will make the onsen sessions even better to soothe the aches.
A old fashion japanese village with cosy atmosphere and very small roads. There are plenty of Onsen open to public and lots of people walking from one to another waring traditional Yukata, which makes the whole picture even more "Japanese".
