Yufuinkogen Fukinosato




This property is absolutory one of the best in Yufuin.  If you are a connoisseur of Japan, I would highly recommend it.  This is like a secret hideaway for adutls in rich nature.  The property tends to emphasize private experiences for each guest.  There are 5 rooms only.  Each room has a wonderful private hot spring.  We didn’t meet other guests during our stay.  The property would be great for couples, family, small groups, or solo travelers.  The ambience is serene, tranquil and relaxed.  It’s like you’re in another world.  We were so welcomed warmly and escorted a rustic modern room.  We fully enjoyed being completely lazy while soaking in our private hot spring until check-out time.  If you are going to stay here, you may want to check in earlier and explore on-site.  Also there are amazing outdoor large private family hot springs which you can complimentary use whenever they are not occupied.  You can relax in the baths while viewing a peaceful forest.  Once you try them, you may become a hot spring freak.  The spring quality is moist, smooth, and soft.  They are open for 24H.  The room tends to be spacious, Japan-minimalistic, and functional.  The housekeeping was excellent.  Facilities tend to be the latest.  Floor heating was installed in each room.  All of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, yukatas, samue outfits, and green tea bags, etc.  There are POLA amenities in the bathroom.  There is no skincare product.  Room service is not available.  There is no convenience store nearby.  You may want to buy your necessities before coming here.  If you spend a lot of time in your room, you may need some snacks, sweets, and drinks, especially the winter season.  If it’s snow, you wouldn’t be able to go out anywhere.  Then wifi reception was not available when we stayed in 2018, but now it seems that you can connect to the internet in rooms in 2019.  Then the property is not universal design.  There are some steps and there is no lift.  If you bring people with weak feet, you may want to request a room on 1F near the front desk.  Wheelchairs are not available.  Then kaiseki food experience was just divine, especially Sukiyaki.  The local ingredients were high-end including beef, fish, and vegetables, etc.  All meals are served in a dining room.  The tables in the dining room are separated by dividers that provide a decent level of privacy.  *Please note that inform 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 is no restaurant around here.  The location is out of the way.  You may want to book a room including meals.  Then all staff is excellent, courteous, and proactive.  If you want to experience signature Japanese hospitality with personal touch, you should stay here.  Overall, for this price, the performance of the service, food, and facilities were above our expectations.  If relaxation is your main purpose, the property would be absolutory perfect.  Anyway the best season to stay here would be in the fall or the spring season.   You can view breathtaking landscapes while taking a walk around the property.  The location is bit far from the center of Yufuin town.  An access to the property would be easy.  Staff can arrange a taxi from Yufuin Station in advance and you don’t need to pay a taxi fare.  It takes 15min by car.  Then if you drive a car, check a map carefully.  There is no sign board around the property so it wouldn’t be easy to find the entrance.  Have a nice trip!  Welcome to receive any questions about the property 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  If you check in after 18:00, you need to inform staff in advance.  Check Availability and Pricing for the property on Booking.com or  Agoda
