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.

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.

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
