Yufuin Rikka

If you are looking for small modern ryokans in Yufuin, I really think you should stay at Yufuin Rikka.  Perhaps if you are looking for rooms with private hot springs, I would highly recommend it.  Each room has a nice private one.  This is like a hideaway for adults.  There are 6 rooms only.  We didn’t see other guests during our stay.  Absolutely the property completely emphasizes private experiences for each guest.  The surrounding neighborhood was so quiet even though there were so many tourists on the main street.  If relaxation is your main purpose, Yufuin Rikka would be perfect.  The ambiance is serene, stylish, and sophisticated.  The property would be great for couples, families, small groups, or solo travelers.  If you are going to stay here, I would highly recommend booking a room with a view of Mt. Yufu.  We fully relaxed in the room while seeing peaceful views.  It seems that some rooms don’t have nice views.  We spent a lot of time jumping in and out of our private hot spring until check-out time.  You can ask the staff to adjust the water temperature to your private one.   The room is functional, user-friendly, and spacious.  Facilities tend to be the latest as the property opened in 2018.  The free WiFi reception was excellent.  You can connect a TV to the Internet and you can use streaming services to watch many kinds of TV dramas and movies.  Then all of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, samue outfits, bottled water, a coffee machine with capsules, tea bags, cookies, and a Japanese tea set.  There are skin care products for men and women in the bathroom.  Then when we stayed here, there was no safety deposit box in our room.  You may want to leave your valuables at the front desk.  Also, there is no communal hot spring, no lounge, and no bar on-site.  Then this is child-friendly.  Staff can provide cribs, baby baths, and bed rails if you request in advance.  Then Yufuin Rikka is a universal design.  There is no wheelchair for borrowing in the property, though.  If you bring people with weak feet, you may want to inform the staff in advance as they can arrange a room near the entrance.  Then there is a convenience store within 10min walking distance, but once you enter the property, you would be completely lazy.  You may want to buy your necessities before coming here.  Then Japanese fusion cuisine was just divine.  If you are a gourmet, you must be excited.  We fully enjoyed the most delicious 10-course meal in a delightful restaurant.  The portion tends to be average.  All meals are served in a private room.  Dinner starts from 18:00 or 18:30.  Breakfast starts from 8:00 or 8:30.  *Please note that 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.  There are some nice restaurants in Yufuin, but I would highly recommend having meals on the property.  The food was good without any comparison.  Then all staff is gracious, warm, and welcoming.  They are the loveliest group.  Absolutely you can experience signature Japanese hospitality during your stay.  Overall, the property has great value for money if compared to others in Yufuin.  It’s well worth a visit.  Access to the property would be easy.  A free shuttle service is available from Yufuin Station.  You need to book it by the day before you check-in.  The location is a 10min-walk from the station.  At last, the property is one of very popular in Yufuin.  If you want to chill out at the property in a tranquil atmosphere, you may want to avoid staying during Lunar New Year, late April to early May, weekend in Oct and Nov, and the end of the year and New Year holiday.  Have a nice trip!  Welcome to receive any questions about Yufuin Rikka from the below space.  *All information is as of the date that I posted on my blog.  **Check-in and out times 15:00/10:00  Check Availability and Pricing for the property on Agoda or  Booking.com
