We came from Kumamoto by train to Hitoyoshi. When we arrived it was a little bit difficult to find the Ryokan, but it is just a five minutes walk from the station. The rooms are large and in a nice japanese style. Do not expect too much from the onsen there. The ryokan has no rotenburo (outside) bath, but it... More

This is a very old traditional Japanese inn - a ryokan. We stayed here two nights on a cycling trip though Kyushu and thoroughly enjoyed this slice of traditional Japanese culture. Our room was large and comfortable, the baths were amazing and the lively dining room served wonderful authentic Japanese food. The staff were friendly and very helpful, while maintaining... More

We stayed for one night in Hitoyoshi Ryokan on a driving tour of Kyushu. We were not disappointed. The Ryokan is located just next to the river running through town and our room had a lovely view overlooking the water and nearby bridge. We had a huge Japanese style room between the two of us, which had all of the... More

I stayed at the Hitoyoshi Royokan as part of a cycling tour. The Royokan is charming and you can expect gracious and attentive hospitality there from the manager on down. Good English is spoken by virtually all of the staff.

I was given a 'gift' for two of an evening at this amazing ryokan, and I have to confess that the combination of traditional architecture, gracious hostess, space, peace & quiet and wonderful food, made this a fantastic experience with incredible ambiance. I have visited the lovely town of Hitoyoshi many times previously but never had the chance to stay... More

We stayed at Hitoyoshi Ryokan while on a Japan Biking self guided tour. The Ryokan itself is beautiful and the rooms have lovely views out onto the river. As previously mentioned the rooms are huge and well equipped. The staff are helpful and attentive and the owners wife is very keen to make sure everyone is comfortable. The food is... More

Conveniently located within an easy three-minute walk to Hitoyoshi station, this ryokan is not only gorgeous on the outside with its main building (recently designated historic property), but on the inside with its beautiful rooms, fantastic meals, and incredible staff. I should have stayed even longer than I did. With a river lulling me to sleep, I rested comfortably on... More
