The biggest draw of this place - shimizu san and the cave like onsen! This place has history and the onsen is unusual and full of character. Shimizu san speaks fluent English and that helps a lot when travelling with kids! We just returned from a one night stay at his ryokan and both shimizu san and their staff went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable. Fantastic attention to detail like laying pillows and a towel for us to place our baby while we dined, special child meals for our older boys and even ferrying us to a nearby unagi shop for lunch as it was pouring and unsafe for us to walk out with young children. We truly felt at home and well cared for here. The food was fantastic!
The location is remote and hard to find and our gps went berserk in the rain so do make sure you buy a wifi plan so Google maps works on your phone, or bring a printed map.
Would highly recommend this place and come back again if we could! yunohira is quiet with not much to do so if you want a place to shop be prepared to drive down to yufuin.
