My friend and I always want to find a ryokan which gives us a warm and cosy feel. We are glad that we finally found it.
Kaede is located up the mountain and they have free pickup service from the Yufuin station. It only has 6 suites and are in traditional Japanese style. We stayed at Kozue suite. Do not expect to be modern or high class but we think that ryokan should be in traditional style.
The size of the suite is reasonable. It is separated from other suites, therefore it is quiet and we cannot hear any sound from outside.
Dinner and breakfast are served in the room. There is no reception area therefore checkout is also attended in the room.
The suite was great with private onsen. The food was great serving refined dishes. But if you have a big appetite, it is better to arrange some midnight snack for yourself.
The Japanese girl who served us spoke English well and she was really helpful in answering our questions.
They had a service that they could help us to transfer our luggage to another ryokan for 500yen.
We enjoyed staying here very much. We liked it that it gave us a 'home' feeling.
No doubt we want to visit Kaede again next time when we visit Yufuin.
