Couple were not friendly, did not even bother to say good-bye. Man was always hurried and harassed and you had to ring a bell on the desk to call him. They were not readily available. Sink was in the corridor where people pass. Toilet was not en suite. Showers could be reached only from a steep step of stairs. Sashimi... More

Enjoyed a one night stay here in October after walking three days along Kumano Kodo. A smaller room than my other accommodation, which was fine as I was travelling alone. It still had everything i needed. Very clean, loved the private onsen. Food was also good. The hotel has free wifi but the signal was very weak at my end... More

We stayed here on our third night of the Kumano Kodo after visiting Kumano Hongu Taisha. Dinner was amazing and our room had a view over the street and the Yunomine Onsen (world heritage listed). We used the outdoor private onsen (which was great as a man and woman can go in together).

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this ryokan. It was at the end of our three days of hiking the Kumano Kodo and it was a lovely punctuation to our travels. We were greeted warmly and were impressed with both the accommodation and the onsen/rotemburo. Unlike other travellers, we had no difficulties accessing the rotemburo - perhaps as we were... More

First book this hotel through the Kumano Kodo pilgrimage site: http://www.kumano-travel.com/index/en/action_ModelCourseDetail_Detail/id58. I had a fantastic experience with this org, as they were there to answer all my questions and also arrange a luggage transfer service. This hotel was my last stop on the journey. The onsen was beautiful, the best one I'd seen. The food was really good - fresh... More

Yunomine onsen is a small but charming onsen street lined with many ryokans. I booked Yoshinoya ryokan based on the fact that it is next to Tsuboyu, the only UNESCO World Heritage onsen in Japan, which I have always wanted to experience. When I arrived in Yunomine onsen, I was glad I chose Yoshinoya ryokan. It is directly next to... More

Yunomine Onsen is a pretty small town so this hotel being next to the end of the Kumano Kodo path is helpful but probably most hotels in the town would be a good location. The rooms were fine and the baths are nice. They also has an outdoor bath. The food was pretty good and we had the beef shabu... More

Nice little hotel right on the Kumano Kudo path through the village of Yunomine. They serve fantastic dinners and breakfasts and the private Onsen bath in the hotel is really nice. The world heritage little wooden hut in the middle of the creek with a tiny Onsen inside is just outside and is a must!

Tucked between forest covered mountains lies the wonderfull little village of Yunomine, famous for the Unesco World Heritage Tsuboyu onsen. After visiting Tanabe down the coast of Kii Peninsula we took the bus and headed inland for Yunomine. Thanks to the exceptionally good web pages of Tanabe city Kumano tourism bureau, travel planning was made easy and we got to... More
