KAI Aso: Escape to the Land of the Fire KAI is a collection of ryokan, traditional Japanese inns, all with fewer than 50 rooms, that boast soothing hot springs and Japanese-style interiors. Enter an authentic world of ryokan and experience the spirit of this country’s omotenashi or traditional hospitality. KAI Aso is located on the southern island of Kyushu, surrounded by lush mountains of a national park. The mineral-rich hot springs of Mt. Aso, a caldera volcano, fill the outdoor tubs that grace every secluded villa. After you soak, take in panoramic views of the magnificent five peaks while savoring the local Kyushu cuisine.

This was a place with around 12 cottages that u enter and u will be wowed by the interior furnishing with a jacuzzi and the onsen outside. At night the fire is lighted to provide you some warmth. However, we have no idea why it will automatically off the heated floor at night.
