The place is about 10-15 mniute walk from Yufuin JR station. And it's close to the walking trails leading to Lake Kinlin. The property is nicely designed and each room is a standalone cottage. The two main onsen pools are very big (bigger than some larger scale onsen hotels) and nicely decorated - and they are never crowded. The pork... More

Although we stayed in another smaller and a little better ryokan before, this place is amazing. Of course there are the beautiful rooms with paper screened sliding doors, tatami mats and the futon to sleep on. But the setting and the Onsen are really spectacular. There are two Onsen for men and women but they change daily. So stay two... More

The property was about a 10 minute slow walk (with luggage) from the station. This is a traditional ryokan style property. We had a large cottage with separate lounge, sleeping area and private toilet areas. Despite it being the middle of winter, there was a good level of heating, which made our cottage a comfortably warm. Friendly staff made us... More

I stayed in this ryokan with my partner on our trip to the onsen (hot springs) town of Yufuin. This property is located approximately 10 minutes walk from the Yufuin train station. It was very easy to find and the walk was pleasant as the views of the mountain in front of us were incredible. We arrived at 10.30am and... More

10 minutes walk from train station. Gourmet City which is actually a supermarket is nearby. A lot of liquor stores on Yufuin main street. Hotel room is spacious (they are individual cabins) and well maintained. There is no bathroom or shower in the cabin though. People who are too shy to go to the public onsen can use private "family... More

This was our first introduction to the onsen experience and it was lovely and welcoming. The onsen itself is very pleasant and with lovely views of the mountain tops. The private onsen (6 of them) back onto the highway which is not the best place to relax with cars zooming past at 80km/hr more thought should have been put into... More
