Stayed at this traditional Japanese ryokan for one night during our 7 days' visit in Ryushu. We had a double room and a triple room for our group of 5. Understandably, this old fashioned ryokan has nothing to do with luxury but the hospitality impressed us all and made us feel warm and homey. Upon check-in, we were greeted by... More

Very well run friendly family-run onsen ryokan. Food was attractively presented, plentiful and very tasty. Onsen is private and available. Quaint village,best to have your own transport. Will go again

Yamashiroya is a family onsen ryokan situated in Yunohira, a small onsen village close (two train stops) to Yufuin. It has three (or four; we didn’t try them all) onsen baths with a lovely view over the mountains. At least one of the owners speak English. The village of Yunohira is situated in a wedge between two mountains and afforded... More

You are taken care of in every way - food, lodging and onsen. Extremely kind service; till we left we got even sunshine :-) The train to Yunohira is also a happening for a friend of trains - this is not shinkansen. ... and Yamashiroya will pick you up at the station. Go there and ENJOY!

I could just agree with all the other reviews of this place. We had a really great stay, and this was one of our highlights during our trip to Japan. We were a bit skeptical at first considering the ryokan was located in Yunohira, a few kilometers from Yufuin where most onsen, restaurants and hotels were located. But the owners... More

This place is a little far away from Yunohira train station. If you don't drive, please get in touch with the owner in advance, they will arrange pickup between the train station and their property. It is a good experience to stay in the semi-traditional Japanese style accommodation. The food they prepared is very delicous and the owner speaks English... More

The Ryokan is at the small quiet village so if you are person who enjoy nightlife,... More

This place is one of the highlights of my trip to Japan. I have rarely met such kind and attentive people as Okami-san, the owner of the hotel. She is a lot of fun, taking care of her guests, making everyone feel relaxed and at ease. She was extremely accommodating helping me with my urgent deadline project and arranging a... More

This is a specialized type of hotel; ryokan, onsen, and full-set japanese meals. Okami-san (the land lady) is an outstanding host. She is an energetic, friendly, and responding. The well thought-out arrangement for the usage of the four onsens should make it comfortable for foreigners. The outdoor onsens are nicely decorated. We stayed in a large room that fit four... More

I stayed here for a night here and it's very good experience. The owner picked me up at Yanouhira station and even they are not available, you can also take taxi to the ryokan and the owner will pay the fee for you so this is very convenience. The hotel has good facilities, clean and well maintain. The dinner is... More
