I found this little gem of a ryokan by chance and I am glad that I did. The location is a short drive from the major tourist area of Yufuin which gave the place a very quiet and peaceful setting. The selections of private hot springs add fun to the relaxing bathing. The food was also quite an experience, excellent ingredients only need simple cooking to bring the best out of them. I highly recommend this place if you want to live a bit away from the tourist trap of Yufuin.

This is a lovely ryokan with your own private hot spring bath in your room. You need a car to get there - although if you get to the town of Yufuin by public transit, you could probably take a taxi to the ryokan. Just when you think your GPS has directed you wrong drive a little past it and you will see a sign for it. Beautiful buildings, so relaxing and peaceful. We enjoyed using the private bath that came with our room and also the outdoor ones. My husband and I stayed with our adult daughter, our room easily would have fit 4 adults on futon beds. We booked room with dinner/breakfast included - beautifully prepared and excellent! Bar is closed on Tuesday's, but no problem getting the drinks we wanted. Service excellent and thoughtful. Once you get out into the smaller towns in Japan, it always helps to speak a little Japanese. Also, knowing onsen etiquette helpful, shower/cleanse before you get in so you don't leave any residue behind when you get in the hot spring baths. Would return here in a heartbeat!

This is a interesting little ryokan in the middle of the mountain, around 20-30 mins drive from central Yufuin. The structure is fairly new and the design is mostly contemporary (although the interior of room is Japanese-style). You must be able to self-drive to reach this place. The food is very well done for such a small ryokan. We ordered the kyushu local steak summer special for dinner. The beef was very high quality and we grilled it on a personal robata stove. Yummy! This ryokan only has 8 rooms with 4 private onsens. None of them are shared facilities. You do not need to pay extra to book them. They are open from morning all the way until midnight and you can go in and use the onsen at anytime, as long as no one else is using it. You are advised to keep your use under 30 minute so all guests have a chance to use the facilities. But in reality we never had to wait for a free onsen. We had fun experiencing 3 of the 4 onsen facilities on property. Surprisingly, the reception staff spoke a bit of English and we had no problem communicating with him. One negative - this ryokan caters to Japanese guests who are looking to just relax and is not representative of a typical ryokan experience (i.e. shared baths, Japanese gardens on site), so I cannot recommend it if you are a first time ryokan user.
