The famous white fox in Yamaguchi
Oct 2019
In Yuda Onsen, the first thing that you will spot is a big white fox statue located beside t Yuda Onsen Station in Yamaguchi City. It is a great place to stop by if you want to get a quick dip in hot springs. There is few place where you could enjoy entering a hot spring without staying at a traditional inn .Of course , you could enjoy yourself at traditional inn too. You could go to an izakaya and drink a beer after a good dip. Almost every hot spring bath or traditional inn , there is always an izakaya nearby. If you are looking for lunch or dinner you could go enjoy foods like ' kawara soba' or ' abura soba' and others. You can even enjoy a foot bath nearby the train station and a few places. If you ever stop by at Yamaguchi, i hope you will came here and enjoy yourself even for a short while.

Better to stay in an onsen hotel when travelling in the area
Aug 2017 • Solo
If visiting Yamaguchi, I would recommend that one stays in Yuda Onsen for a couple of nights and travel to the nearby places during the day. This is to ensure you can relax and get refreshed and recharged. This onsen resort is close to Yamaguchi City as well as Shin-Yamaguchi and on the bus route to the different sightseeing spots. When visiting Japan, I try to stay mostly in onsen hotels if at all possible.

From Shin-Yamaguchi Shinkansen station, take a local train for Yamaguchi, and get off at one station before Yamaguchi! The discovery of this Onsen is associated with the story of a wounded fox. This is why you can find many statues of fox in this town. Some Japanese inns offer the possibility for tourists to take the bath without overnight: this is called "Higaeri Nyuyoku". You should definitely try it.

One afternoon of relax
Mar 2016 • Solo
I stopped at Yuda Onsen on my way returning from Tsuwano. It is close to Yamaguchi and I got off the train at Yuda Onsen JR station. The baths are easy to find. You take the street that begins right in front of the station and follow it straight ahead. There is a park on the way where you can bathe your feet for free, but I went straight to Onsen no Mori. I booked a 20-min massage than I soaked my body in the waters. There is a garden with a bath that is just awesome. I really enjoyed the experience.

I live very near to Yuda Onsen so I am biased.

I recommend Shimizu no Yu spa, which is more like a public bath than a spa but the hot water is from Shimizu no Yu's own private source. Shimizu no Yuu spa is on the road going North from the intersection at the end of Central Park (chuuo koen). It costs a lot less than the other famous spa hotels in Yuda. There is a private "family" bathing room where one could partake of the bathing in private.

The Chūya Nakahara museum is good. He seems to have been Westernised. Most Japanese poetry, particularly haiku, seems to me to be about calling to mind images, but Chūya (for some reason poets get to be called by their given name) uses interesting sounds, like Western poetry.

I am not a fan of the foot baths, compared to actually getting into a bath, myself but they are free and a nice way to enjoy the spa without getting your kit off in front of other people.

There are also a lot of girlie bars where one can talk, and perhaps hold the knee of Japanese and Filipino ladies. I do not go myself, but I have been. I think that some of the Filipino ladies may speak English well enough for this to be amusing even for English speakers. There is a night life information service on the north side of the main street near, and on the same side of the road as Matsudaya Hotel.

Behind the NTT building, with an antenna on top, there is a small mountain or hill with Kumano shrine on top. This shrine precinct affords some degree of a view over Yuda.

There are lots of good restaurants but for the traveller, for whom everything is new and good, one of the cheapest is the chain restaurant, Watami on the East side of the main street. It has everything, at low prices and a good lively atmosphere. I prefer the cheaper places. There is a road parallel to the main Yuda road on the north side that has cheaper bars and restaurants. On the south side there are more girlie bars.

There are lots of bars and restaurants and a general night life feel. It is getting quieter and quieter but if some foreign tourists came, then perhaps it would have a resurgence because Japanese like to go to places that non-Japanese choose. Please come to Yuda!

There are now no gaijin bars that I know of. Johnny's bar on the 3rd floor of the building across the tiny road next to Matsudaya hotel spa, above the night life information booth mentioned above, used to be good but it got tame under the new bartender manager. Or maybe I just got old. It was my favourite bar.

Relaxing Rainy Day
Nov 2015 • Solo
I came on a rainy day, and enjoyed the warm footbath. There are a few spread across town, but I recommend the one nestled in the alleyway next to a ryokan. It's not next a road so it's quiet, and one can admire the shrubbery instead of pavement. Tried going to Sansuien, but I think they were closed for repairs, and ended up at Hotel Kamefuku. Was not disappointed. I had the baths to myself, enjoyed a dip in the indoor bath, then the tiny little outdoor tubs, then in the microbubble tub, and a sip of the spring water. Finished up with a brief stint in the sauna, followed by a dip in the cold bath. My muscle aches abated, and my skin felt so smooth and soft afterwards. Wonder if the "horse oil" soap in the showers is made from horses...

Yuda Onsen is a peaceful area, the perfect space for relaxing walks around shrines and old quarters, not to be missed!

Talk a walk, use the foot bath!
Yuda onsen is a nice area in Yamaguchi City! I especially like the different foot baths that are located around the area. If you get tired of walking, just rest in the foot bath! It's great!
