Yufuin Onsen Ryokan Hananomai


This small ryokan wouldn’t be luxury, but very cozy.  The proeprty is mom-and-pop.  There are 8 rooms only.   The surrounding neighborhood is so quiet even though there are so many tourists on the main street.  The ambience is tranquil, serene and friendly.  Definitely, one night stay wouldn’t be enough.  The property would be great for couples, small groups, solo travelers, or family.  If you are going to stay here, I would highly recommend booking a room with a private hot spring.  We spent a lot of time soaking in our private one until check-out time.  The spring quality was smooth, soft and moist.  Then there is no view of Mt. Yufudake from our room but it’s a fresh environment surrounded by greenery.  The room is Japanese minimalistic, but truly relaxing.  The housekeeping was excellent.  Wifi reception was sometimes unstable when we stayed on March, 2019.  All of the amenities are taken care of including minimum toiletries, yukatas, tea bags, and a Japanese tea set.  Also this is child-friendly.  Staff can provide cribs, yukatas, and samue outfits for small kids if you request in advance.  Room service is not available.  There is no convenience store nearby.  You may want to buy your necessities before coming here.  Then the property is not universal design.  There is no lift.  There are some steps in-house.  If you bring people with weak feet, you may want to request a room near the entrance.  A wheelchair is available for borrowing.  Then there are small public indoor hot springs.  They are open for 24H.  Also there is a private family hot spring which you can complimentary use.  You need to book it when you check in.  It’s open from 15:00-10:00 the following morning.  *If you have tattoos and want to use the public hot springs, use reserved private family one, or book a room with a private one attached.  Then Japanese kaiseki food experience was just divine.  The property is one of well-known auberge in Yufuin.  If you are a gourmet, you must be happy.  Each dish tends to be exquisite, dainty, and testy.  The portion tends to be average.  All meals are served in a dining area.  There is no private room in a dining area.  Dinner starts from 18:00 or 19:00.  Breakfast starts from 8:00, 8:30, or 9:00.  *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 actually there are some nice restaurants in Yufuin, but if you stay here, you may want to have meals in the property.  It’s well worth trying the food.  Also you can order wonderful lunch boxes in advance.  I noticed that some local people visited here only for lunch or dinner.  Then all staff tends to be sophisticated, professional, and proactive.  The software would be impeccable.  If you want to experience signature Japanese hospitality with personal touch, you should stay here.  Overall, the property has good value for money if compared to others in Yufuin.  Absolutory we would come back again.  The location is 15min walk from Yufuin Station.  If this is your first time visiting here, you may want to ask a free shuttle bus from the station.  It wouldn’t be easy to find the property.  Free shuttle service is available from 15:00-17:00.  You need to book it in advance.  At last, the property is very popular.  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 year and New Year holiday.  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 15:00/10:30  ***They can accept CASH only. ****If you check in after 18:00, you need to inform staff in advance.  Check Availability and Pricing for the property on Agoda
