I went in March which is the beginning of spring so the weather was moderate and I had the place to myself with the exception of a few curious passers by. Real peace and serenity and far, far from my home. I believe in the recent past there was a modesty wall for gender segregation in the main Onsen. Maybe... More

This onsen is fantastic, Extremely cheap (when we went it was 100 Yen) and not at all fancy, you arrive, make your way down a small outside path, put your clothes wherever seems out of the way, and fumble your way into the onsen. Despite how difficult this is in the pitch blackness (there are no lights in the immediate... More

An onsen like it should be - next to the sea, with waves splashing into the lower bassins. Crabs running around :) In the evening also a gathering point for young & old islanders.

Rating: 4-1/2 stars Yudomari Onsen comes in a close second behind nearby Hirauchi Kaichu in the Battle of Yakushima's Oceanside Onsen. The pool near the parking lot was unexciting, as others have rightly noted. Far more appealing was the bath a little farther down the path at the ocean's edge. The setting and views were terrific. Sugoi desu!

Both evenings we spent on Yakushima we spent at this onsen, and both were epic. Amazing spot to experience the sunset. The separate men's and women's pool near the parking lot, holds little appeal (more people, young kids, noise). Walk past to the pool farther out and enjoy the great view and a relaxing soak in the most beautiful seaside... More

Yudomari onsen is located in the very south of Yakushima. There is a rockpool onsen bath which is divided by a plank to separate women and men. But keep walking pass this onsen and you will soon come to another onsen pool further out towards the rocks. Here, if you are lucky, you can have a spot of privacy all... More
