Travel with family and it is our first hot spring experience. It is a traditional Japanese style hotel. The hot spring area is very big and we enjoy it much. I especially enjoy the outdoor one. The dinner is nice and the staff is nice too. You can enjoy a piece of silence in this hotel and enjoy a nice walk in the forest next to the hotel. My boy is very happy to meet with the staff. Anyway, it would be good if the duration of the breakfast can be longer, let's say until 10:00am. It would be a good pick if you want to enjoy the traditional hot spring, room, meals, and services.

A very large hotel but by no means impersonal. The staff are superb and really friendly. You may not see another westerner in the hotel; the hotel seems to be very popular with the Japanese. The room is OK, Ryokan style but the bathroom is in a desperate need of an update. The location is great, a short drive to all the good walks. The views are amazing and there is even a walk from the hotel to the surrounding woods. The food is very Japanese but it is fresh. The Western style breakfast is not great and the coffee is probably one of the worst. I didn't try the Japanese breakfast. This is a good hotel but nothing special although the staff make up for most of its shortcomings.

The Kirishima is an Onsen style hotel and aimed mostly at Japanese families wanting an Onsen (i.e. spa bathing) experience. We chose the hotel for its location close to Kirishima national parks and weren't disappointed being quite close to some excellent walks, thermal areas and lakes. We had a western/japanese room which was enormous as it has both a tatami mat sleeping area and a double western bedroom. Two toilets and a sitting room completed the accommodation. The dinners were amazing serving excellent ingredients (abalone, sea urchin, lobster, wagyu beef, crab etc.), beautifully cooked and in an atmospheric dining room looking out onto a flood lit forest!

The highlight of this place definitely has to be the baths. Picture an amusement park for onsen lovers. Hot, cold, outdoor, indoor, fountains you name it. It is a real blast playing in all the tubs and pools, though the water was generally not as hot as we like it. Kids would absolutely love it. It's not as relaxing as sitting in a quiet onsen or rotemburo by yourself but it is a fun break from "tradition". The food was quite good, both the dinner and the buffet breakfast. The dinner was served in courses, not all at the same time, which was a nice touch, and all washed down with ice cold sake. Try to ask for a room not facing the front driveway and carpark as you may be awoken early by the sound of people leaving and buses driving up.
