Surrounded by nature, Unzen Kanko Hotel offers an accommodations in a historic building registered as a tangible cultural property. Free Wi-Fi is provided at all areas. The hotel occupies an unbeatable location at the entrance to Unzen National Park, within easy walking distance of the "hells" and the very charming (if also very touristy) town square. The facilities were spotless despite the age of the hotel, with huge wooden ceiling beams, a dramatic pine tree-lined entrance, a lovely bar and billiards room, and lovely Art Deco-inspired baths. The service was also top-notch (special thanks to Takeuchi-san who greeted us on our arrival and was extremely helpful in answering all of our detailed questions about the area, public transportation, where to find fresh strawberries, etc.).
Boasting a top-floor hot-spring bath with fantastic harbor views, Yukai Resort Unzen Hotel Toyokan is a 10-minute walk from Unzen Spa House. Massages and a sauna can also be enjoyed. This hotel with the 'old-looking' exterior looks surprisingly luxurious the moment you step in. A pleasant surprise indeed. Next to the check in counter, there is a wide selection of Yukata (casual kimono) for women, men and kids that you can pick based on your height. Lots of food and varieties at the buffet breakfast and dinner. Highly recommended. Onsen is clean with great view of the mountains for both inside and outdoor pools. Central location in the small town and walking distance to Unzen Jigoku, cafes, restaurants, mini-mart, wine shop, etc.
Featuring free WiFi, Jyokiya offers accommodations in Unzen. Every room is equipped with a flat-screen TV. You will find a kettle in the room. All rooms come with a shared bathroom. We loved this place. ..it was so Japanese!! I know that might sound odd, but just having come from Tokyo where we stayed in hostels, it was lovely to arrive to slippers at the entrance, a choice of yukata for the onsen, and a tatami-matted room for us to lay our futons in. Very friendly helpful staff helped us make sense of it all. Obama is great.....steam rising from every crack and a strong smell of sulphur which you become immune to surprisingly quickly.
At Unzen Fukudaya, guests can enjoy public indoor/outdoor hot-spring baths and relaxing massages. Free wired internet is provided in all rooms, while the lobby provides free Wi-Fi. The location was perfect, we took a bus from Isahaya and arrived right in front of the royukan. It is located right next to the Hells of Unzen, and many of the tourist areas of the town, making it easy to explore. The staff are accommodating and welcoming, using English when they can to explain and making sure you understand how things work, answering any questions that came up. The facilities especially the private dining space and the dinner and breakfast we're lovely, very traditional but exactly what we hoped for. We did not try the public baths as we both have tattoos and booked a private bath for the night but the spaces seemed lovely and if there were time in the morning we would have tried to see if we could access them without issue. The room was a good size and the tatami mat area a nice space to relax after dinner and bathing, we were provided to with very comfortable yukata and encouraged to wear them around the hotel, for dinner and breakfast as well as to the baths which enhanced the experience.
Located in Unzen, within 328 feet of Hot Foot 105 and 9.3 mi of Unzen National Park, Iseya, Seaview Private Onsen Bath features accommodations with a restaurant and free WiFi as well as free private... It’s a stylish hotel, not like the traditional one. We enjoy the onsen in the room. Dinner is delicious, staff tried to explain every dishes. It’s quite enjoyable! Breakfast is a Japanese style buffet, not much choices but taste is okay!
Located in the middle of Unzen National Park's hot spring area, the Unzen Sky Hotel features indoor and outdoor natural hot spring baths, a Japanese restaurant and a souvenir shop. Excellent location with a beautiful and impressive view of the hells from my room! I appreciated the tiny couch in the room too. There was a teapot and tea so I could sit and enjoy the view in the morning. The hot springs at the hotel were very nice too--both indoor and outdoor portions.
Located in Unzen, a 19-minute walk from Unzen National Park, Minshuku Unzen features air-conditioned rooms with free WiFi. the staff are wonderful!!! incredibly helpful & kind. the location is really great, you can easily do some hikes or go to the lake
Unzen Iwaki Ryokan offers public indoor/outdoor hot-spring baths and traditional multi-course meals. Guests sleep in Japanese-style rooms and free Wi-Fi is available at the lobby. Room was very comfortable. The in-room / outdoor onsen was also amazing. Food served was really really good. Staff didn’t speak all that much English, but it wasn’t a problem. Their customer service was so good, we really didn’t need to do much communication anyway. Location right in the center of Unzen was excellent
At Tsutaya Ryokan, guests can refresh in the public indoor/outdoor hot-spring baths or reserve private open-air hot-spring baths, which are located on the rooftop and features views of Tachibana Bay. Location was so great in the center of the Hot Spring place just a minute walk to restrants, drinking places and Sun Set view point park with free hot spring steam cooking oven!
Currently being renovated and opening in May 2018, Unzen Kyushu Hotel is a minute's walk from Unzen Jigoku and an 18-minute walk from Unzen National Park. The ryokan features luggage storage space. Hotel management was very understanding of our situation which happened on the day of check in. Thank you. Both dinners exceeded expectations - highlights included abalone one night and lobster the other night. Fantastic, Japanese painting-like scenery from the room. Terrific room setup and very clean. Hotel was fully booked but you don't feel it - enjoyed the privacy. Great lounge areas. They also provide postcards for you to send to family and friends.

Nice place to hike. Plenty of greenery even in December. Not so pleasant if it rains. Hiking nearer the ridge may not be suitable to those who are not so fit as it can get quite steep. Using the ropeway could ease the trip a bit for those who have some health challenges.
Suitable place for relaxation and hot springs, The accessibility is not so convenient unless you travel by car. The hot-spring-village is just lovely small so it’s better to combine with other nearby sightseeing places.
Unzen Jigoku is an interesting site for two reasons: (1) firsthand experience of a bubbling mud pool, plentiful of steam from the various fissures in the grounds (2) Christians were tortured to death during the Edo period
I would recommend driving the Nita Pass. You pay 100 yen to tale a one way circular route which has great views and includes a small cable car which takes you up to views of Fugen dale and its lava flow and some hiking trails. The boiling mineral hot springs right in the middle of the village are pretty amazing. I would advise wearing closed shoes when walking around. Unzen would make a good one day visit but with prior knowledge we would have preferred to stay in Shimabara where we caught the ferry to Kumamoto. There is a lot more to see there. The castle, the samurai houses and particularly the Gamadas Dome Mt Unzen Disaster Memorial Hall are worth a visit. The latter has audio guides in English where you learn about the 1991 eruption and vulcanology and there is a great lifelike simulation theatre.
Unzen is my favourite place in Kyushu so far. It is beautiful in all seasons. The view of Sheikei volcano from Nita pass is a must. The Unzen hells are very spooky and interesting to see. My favourite place are the guest houses on the cod stream in Shimabara.
I went to just the city of Obama in Unzen. It's a small town, but easy to get anywhere on foot, and has a variety of places to eat and stay at. Of course, great onsens to visit and bathe in as well! Obama is also the home of the Longest Foot Bath in Japan. It was a very comfortable and relaxing way to spend an afternoon. Aside from the footbath there are also some traditional shrines and temples around the area that are beautiful and relaxing. Not much of a night life, but if you want to have a relaxing few days to yourself, it's perfect!
