this is just an awful ryokan, dirty, threadbare carpets, old furniture stacked in corridors, cracks on the walls... seems like the owners gave up on the place about 30years ago.
the hotel is in the middle of nowhere, surrounded only by cheap nasty red light district and dumpy houses...
usually no matter how bad the ryokan is, the onsen might make up for any shortcomings... the outdoor onsen looked quite nice, unfortunately because 'kikuchi is famous for scorching water' the water was so hot i couldn't even use the onsen... this was the first time ever i haven't been able to walk in onsen water for fear of getting burnt... and it wasn't just me thinking this, i talked to two other japanese men who said the same...
in summary, terrible place , avoid kikuchi and this ryokan hotel. better going to yufuin,

The ryokan (hotel) provided us with our own "chaperone" who walked us to our room, taught us how to put on our Yukata, and was our private server who told us what each item on the plate was and how to eat it for the first night. The ryokan also offers a... More
