Yufuin Souan Kosumosu

What kind of onsen ryokan is Yufuin Souan Kosumosu?

If you are looking for small luxury modern ryokans in Yufuin, you should stay here.  We felt the luxury and authenticity at once.  Absolutely the property is one of the best in Yufuin.  The surrounding neighborhood is quiet even though there are many tourists on the main street.  The ambiance is elegant, classic, and serene.  Everything, such as interior, furniture, and decorations, etc., is sophisticated.  This is a modern design expressing unique Japanese sensitivity.  Then there are 12 rooms only.  We didn’t see other guests during our stay.  The property would be great for couples, solo travelers, family, or small groups.  We were welcomed warmly and escorted into a beautiful tatami room.

Is the location easy to access?

Yes, it would be easy.  A free shuttle service is available from Yufuin Station.  It takes 5min by car.  You need to book it in advance.  If you walk from the station, it takes around 15min.  The location is near Lake Kinrin.  You should take a walk around there before breakfast.

Where is the best accommodation for anniversary?

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

Rooms I would recommend?

If you are going to stay here, I would recommend rooms with private hot springs in the villa.  We fully enjoyed our private one until check-out time.  The spring quality is smooth, soft, and moist.  The water temperature tends to be a bit high.  We added tap water to adjust the water temperature.  The rooms are spacious, functional, and relaxed.  Each room has twin beds on tatami mats.  The housekeeping was excellent.

How about toiletries & in-room amenities?

All of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, yukatas, pajamas, and a Japanese tea set.  There are skincare products for men and women in the bathroom.  Room service is not available.  Complimentary coffee is available at the lobby in the morning only.  There is a convenience store nearby.  Free WiFi reception is available in all rooms and around the lobby only.  Also, this is child-friendly.  Staff can provide yukatas, chairs, and meals, etc., for children if you request in advance.  There is a kids’ playroom in the main building.

How about In-house Facilities?

Facilities tend to be the latest.  There are wonderful indoor and outdoor communal hot springs.  Also, there are two private family hot springs that you can use for free whenever they are not occupied.  All of them are open from 6:30-10:00, 15:00-23:00.  *If you have tattoos and want to use the communal hot springs, use the private family ones.  Then Yufuin Souan Kosumosu is a universal design.  There is a lift in the main building.  A wheelchair is available for borrowing.  If you bring people with weak feet, you may want to inform the staff in advance as they can arrange a room near the lift.

How about meals?

The Japanese kaiseki cuisine was just divine.  The food would be top-notch.  If you are a gourmet, you must be excited.  Each dish is tasty, dainty, and exquisite.  There are some nice restaurants in Yufuin, but if you stay here, you should try dinner and breakfast on the property.  It’s well worth it.  The portion tends to be big.  Don’t forget to bring your empty stomach.  All meals are served in a private room.  *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.

My impressions

All staff is professional, proactive, and gracious.  You can experience signature Japanese hospitality with a personal touch during your stay.  Overall, it was good without any comparison.  I think that the property has good value for money.  Definitely we would come back again.   At last, the property is very popular among local people.   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 Souan Kosumosu from the below space.  Check Availability and Pricing for the property on Agoda or Booking.com
