We stayed for a few nights recently in this semi-modern ryokan located in a quiet, secluded forest close to the main town of Yufuin -where most of the cafes, restaurants and shops are located. It takes only 5-6 minutes to arrive here by car from JR Yufuin station. The ryokan provides a pick up service from the train station and... More

Yufuin is a town nestled in the valley overlooked by Mt Yufu. A fairly open valley, it is ringed by 2000m thickly forested mountains and is a picture perfect town in Eastern Kyushu. There are a great many places to stay in Yufuin as people come from all over Japan for their hot springs. Yufuin Gettoan is a deluxe ryokan... More

I visited Yufuin with my parents and they LOVED this modern-traditional Japanese ryokan. The room was super clean and tidy, just about right size for 3 adults, and we had our own private hot spring bath just outside the balcony. Hot spring is divided between women's and men's, not too big but not too small to relax your body. They... More

We stayed in the deluxe wing for one night and it was fantastic. The accommodation was excellent, the location was secluded and quiet in the mountains above the town. However, the highlight of the stay was definitely the food. One of the best Kaiseki meals I've ever had.

Would not hesitate to recommend it. Far from the cluttered tourist scene in the town of Yufuin itself --- you feel quite in the middle of a primeval forest. The only time in my life I was practically deafened by the sound of thousands of frogs in the nearby pond (but it's quiet indoors). The outdoor hotspring pools ('rotemburo') are... More

This ryokan is excellent. I cannot find any faults in it except that it's expensive. It's quiet, secluded, and the view from the hotel into the mountain is spectacular. The public onsen is relaxing and it has a beautiful view. We had a child with us and we stayed in the main house area (children are not allowed to enter... More

Pros: - Very beautiful, quiet in the jungle - Exceptional DINNER menu and service - Onsen in Room - Takes excellent care of you from the... More

It's our second time there at Gettouan. The level of service was even better than the first time. 1. The pick-up service. The hotel has the pick up service from the Yufuin train station. They came with private van to pick us up with a super-polite driver whom speak little english. 2. Check-in. The staffs were very polite since we... More

Great place for relaxing. Their service was excellent- though the staffs speak little English, they tried very hard to explain everything. The property and the room were decorated in traditional natural Japanese style which was very beautiful. All the rooms are independent villas so it's very, very quiet. There are many spas you can enjoy- from the main spa, family... More
