Tsumikusa No Yado Komatsu Ryokan

What kind of onsen ryokan is Tsumikusa No Yado Komatsu Ryokan?

This is my cup of tea.  If you are a connoisseur of Japan, you should stay at Tsumikusa No Yado Komatsu Ryokan.  Perhaps, if you are looking for beautiful tatami rooms with private hot springs, I would recommend it.  This is one of the top-notch ryokans in Japan.  This is like a hideaway for adults.  There are 6 rooms only.  Each room has a private hot spring.  We never met other guests during our stay.  Absolutely the ryokan completely emphasizes private experiences for each guest.  The surrounding neighborhood is so quiet.  We felt the luxury and authenticity at once.  Sincere and wonderful hospitality greeted us the moment we started parking our car.  Once we arrived at the property, staff escorted to an amazing room and we checked in in our room while having Yokan *red-bean jelly with green tea.

Is the location easy to access?

Access to the property would be inconvenient.  It takes 30min from Kagoshima Airport by car.  There is no free shuttle service.  You may want to get a rental car.  Alternatively, you can take a taxi from Kagoshima Airport.  It takes 25min by car.  It costs around JPY3,000.

Where is the best accommodation for anniversary in Kyushu?

If you are looking for unique venues for special occasions, the property would be one of the best.  The staff arranges flowers and cakes to celebrate an anniversary at additional charges if you request in advance.

Rooms I would recommend?

If you are going to stay here, I would recommend a room called “Tsukushi”.  The room including furniture, decorations, interior, and a small garden is truly sophisticated.  Facilities tend to be the latest.   The private indoor and outdoor hot springs are amazingly charming and quaint.  The water temperature tends to be high.  You can ask the staff to adjust the temperature before using your private ones.  The spring quality is creamy, thick, and soft.  Check Availability and Pricing for the ryokan on Agoda

How about toiletries & in-room amenities?

All of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, samue outfits, a coffee machine with beans, tea bags, and yukatas.  Also, there are colorful yukatas in the lobby which you can choose.  There are skincare products in the bathroom.  The free WiFi reception was excellent in the property.  There is no vending machine in the house, but there is a convenience store nearby.  Room service is not available.  Also, this is child-friendly.  Staff can provide cribs, yukatas, and chairs, etc. if you request in advance.

How about In-house Facilities?

There is a complimentary private family hot spring in-house that you can use whenever it’s not occupied.  It’s open from 15:30-10:30 the following morning.  Complimentary Japanese shaved ice was served after soaking in hot springs.  That’s a great service.  There is no communal hot spring in-house.  Then Tsumikusa No Yado Komatsu Ryokan is not a universal design.  There is no lift.  There are some steps, but once you enter your room, you wouldn’t need to move around as there are private hot springs in your room.  If you bring people with weak feet you may want to inform the staff in advance.  Also, you should book a western Japanese-style room with twin beds.  It would be much comfortable.

How about meals?

Kaiseki food experience was wonderful, especially, beefsteak and pork shabu-shabu.  There are free refills for the pork.  The portion tends to be big.  Basically all meals are served at a private room in a dining area, but if you bring small children, they are served in your room.  If you bring people with weak feet, you may want to request for meals served in your room.  It costs 1,100JPY per adult in this case.  Then inform the staff when you book a room with meals if you have any food allergies.  They probably wouldn’t be able to prepare alternative food if you request on that day.  Then, as far as I know, there wouldn’t be restaurants around the property.  Most of the local papa-mama shops are closing early.  You may want to book a room including meals.

My impressions

All staff is amazingly professional, elegant, and first-class.  If you expect sophisticated Japanese hospitality, it’s well worth staying here.  To be frank, the property has great value for money if you compare to top-notch ryokans in Izu, Hakone, and Atami, etc.  At last, there is a natural walking path and Kirishima Onsen market near the property.  You should hang out around the property.  The best season to stay at the property would be in the spring and the fall season.  Have a nice trip!  Welcome to receive any questions about Tsumikusa No Yado Komatsu Ryokan from the below space.   If you check-in after 18:00, you need to inform the staff in advance.  Check Availability and Pricing for the ryokan on Agoda
