“Not the best for summer visits”
Review of Yunomine Onsen

Yunomine Onsen

Attraction details
Reviewed August 9, 2012

Sure, it's a UNESCO onsen, and a bit charming, but taking a dip here isn't the same when it's 33 Celsius outside. We had the Tsuboyu for half an hour - the first 15 minutes we had to use to cool the pool down with adding cold water. After the bath, you're steaming hot and sweating, and you can't cool down in the river here because it's only a shallow stream through town.

In the small hamlet there's really nothing to do, other than waiting for the next bus to Hongu or Shingu. If you're visiting in the colder months, the onsen is probably much more worthwhile, but in summer, opt for a river dip or one of the onsens that have outdoor pools instead.

I don't think the onsens/ryokans here are particularly good - the main attraction is Tsuboyu but its main differentiating point is its historical significance rather than its beauty or healing properties. I've been to the spa towns in Kurokawa (Kyushu) and Hakone (near Tokyo) and those were a lot more beautiful and charming.
