Pros: Everything
9.5 Excellent
Pros: Such a beautiful little paradise with private onsen and rotemburo and so conveniently located.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: I stayed here for one night with my boyfriend, to enjoy Japan's hot sauna and Yufuin street. In conclusion I really satisfied with here, also same as my boyfriend. All staffs were so kind and well introduced the room, and the city to us. Thanks to that, we could enjoy the street well, and restaurants. The Oncen outside itself is so gorgeous and nice and private. The water is always extremely warm and clean, which is so good to have a bath outside during cold winter. Having a hot bath, watching stars in the sky... I will never forget that experience. I really want to visit this place again with my family one day. Thank you
Cons: They don't serve dinner and breakfast, compared to the other Ryokans. But anyway I can't eat seafood meals, and also my boyfriend doesn't enjoy it so that didn't matter to us. But for others, accepting that risk, I really recommend this place to whom want hot bath outside! You can have some nice dinner or breakfast outside, or also you can buy some Japanese style meals at the big market, which located just next to the accommodation.

Yufuin Yawaraginosato Yadoya - Yufu - Building

9.1 Excellent (1,277 reviews)
Overview Reviews
With a stay at Yufuin Yawaraginosato Yadoya in Yufu (Yufuin Onsen), you'll be a 1-minute drive from Kinrin Lake and 11 minutes from Kijima Kogen Park. Featured amenities include complimentary newspapers in the lobby, an elevator (lift), and microwave in a common area. Free self parking is available onsite.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff here are great and really nice. They even gave me a gift when I was leaving! The room was decent and it was overall comfortable. One thing I did like is that it was close to the main streets in Yufuin which made it easy to get to and from during my stay. Just be careful though, at night it can be a little hard to find your way back! Also, the breakfast they offer is great and the venue is nice and relaxed with a lovely view out the windows.
Cons: I feel like the room could be updated a little since it is a bit dated and the shower in my room was really inconsistent. It would sometimes just get extremely hot and then go back to normal. Apart from that there isn't any other negative things I can say.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: I really like to commend the staff at Yawaragi-no-Sato Yadoya, it is they who made the difference to the whole stay; and my whole family can attest to that. Actually, it is not full credit to all the staff at Yawaragi,by naming just a few persons. Since we did managed to get their names, THANK YOU Tokumuru and Nagomori (at our meals) and the gentlemen at the reception who spoke very good English. We cannot thank you enough for the great time we had with you.
Cons: There is nothing to dislike or even fault, but a few pointers for improvement. Unfortunately we were stuck very bad traffic and arrived much later than expected, hence we had to contact the Ryokan. Suggestion because of today's technology for Yawaragi to have a LINE or WhatsApp contact number so that there is no need to incur international charges for those of us who have data. In the similar context, providing the drivers with the MAP CODE would be useful, as the Japanese navigation system functions on MAPCODES (of course, you can also key in the phone number). The other thing, which I had already informed the Ryokan, is that they may have to re-consider their system for booking the private onsen.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The location was a little difficult to find...but once we were there, it was worth the walk. The staff were extremely friendly and very professional. The dinner was absolutely fabulous (it exceeded our expectations) and the breakfast was totally amazing. My fellow travelers totally enjoyed the onsen. The room was a pretty good size, but the bathroom was a bit small. All in all, we had a great stay and will definitely think about going back.
Cons: There wasn't anything I didn't like.
10.0 Excellent

9.5 Excellent
Pros: The place stays away from busy streets and gave us a peaceful time for relaxing. Also, the place is well equipped with necessary facilities and accessed for seniors. Every staff I came across was nice and professional.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: The location of this hotel is just a few minutes from the main tourist street. They have 3 private onsens for guests to book in addition to the public ones. Some of the Japanese staff speaks English which is a plus. They are patient and friendly all the time. The hotel has a lift and very wheelchair friendly. Good if you have heavy luggages! Breakfast for 1080JPY was worth it. The room has high ceiling and large (201). The tatami area can easily sleep 4 in addition to the 2 western beds. It was really comfortable.
Cons: For around 45k Yen a night without meals, it is very pricey considering we paid 38k Yen for a beautiful ryokan in Kurosawa with kaiseki dinner and breakfast. I guess the price is for the large room and convenience to the shopping street. All the other ryokans I stayed in Ureshino and Kurosawa provided pick-up and drop-off services, so I call this a hotel instead of a ryokan since they did not provide.
8.8 Excellent
Pros: Excellent location. The evening meal was fantastic - one of the best we have had in lovely little private areas/booths. The private onsens (which you book on arrival) are beautiful and outdoor which was a fantastic experience. We would recommend this hotel!
Cons: The hotel was a little pricey in comparison to the other accommodation we have stayed in across Japan. However it was lovely

10.0 Excellent
Pros: I like the kitchen that allows us to cook supper. There is not much food in Yufuin and not much attraction in yufuin. The common area is great. They have a private onsen that you are allowed to lock the door 1st come 1st serve. The staff is really helpful, they helped us carry our luggage to our room.
Cons: There's stairsways, so do expect to carry your luggage up and down via stairs. The private onsen is 1st come 1st serve basis, hence there is moments that you might need to wait for your turn. The kitchen is only available in the evening, hence you cant cook your own meals/breakfast in the morning. But they do provide breakfast, you can pay at the property itself.

The place is unlike traditional Japanese Onsen, they decorate in a bit French style with vivid colours, which made the experience more special for us.

8.8 Excellent
Pros: The cave onsen and private onsen features were unique and nice.
Cons: You need a car to get there and felt the breakfast could have been better as I am personally not a fan of tofu and yogurt.
8.3 Excellent
Pros: Amazing food, incredibly gracious hosts, a peaceful setting, and a surreal cave onsen. We loved our stay here.
Cons: The building is very old (and beautiful), but that means it’s also a little drafty and creaky. The futons were okay, but rather thin and I had to layer extra blankets on mine to appease my very American taste for soft beds. The place is a bit pricy, but the hosts go above and beyond to make sure your stay is a good one.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: If you’re looking to just do a day trip to Yufuin, you’re making a mistake! You should definitely consider staying overnight at Yufuin Country Road Youth Hostel! I loved the warm and cabin style decor, made me feel right at home! Ryo and his family were amazing at creating a relaxed environment. I have to give a special mention to the FOOD - if you are there, both breakfast and dinner is a must! The cooking is so so delicious and varied. I also liked the comfortable lounge area which had beautiful views overlooking Yufuin. The on-site onsen was also oh so wonderful! Ryo also offers a night tour of Yufuin to the guests which I really enjoyed! I got to see and catch fireflies for the first time as well as learn about Japanese shrine etiquette. Thanks so much for the special stay!
Cons: Nothing! I was the only guest that night so I didn’t get much opportunity to socialise BUT I thoroughly enjoyed my stay nevertheless. It was great to wind down and relax after a few weeks of fast paced travelling.

Cons: No
10.0 Excellent
Pros: After visiting with my mom 4 years ago, we had such good memories that we visited this ryokan again. Although, they don't remember us, the owner couple we met again were still kind and welcoming to us. Unfortunately, I could not have a meal because my reservation did not include breakfast, but it was very nice to be able to enjoy the beautiful scenery. Also, room was very comfortable that we were able to get rid of all the fatigue that traveled. When we check-out, I asked for a call taxi due to heavy burden, but it was not easily assignmented. Nevertheless, the owner constantly tried and eventually we were able to take a taxi to the bus terminal easily. Thank you once again to the owner couple who have done their utmost to the end.
Cons: There's nothing at all. The perfect place for everything!!
10.0 Excellent
Pros: Everything. It's really a beautiful house, with lot of charm. The location is great, the view in front of the ryokan is amazing, with some rice fields and the volcano behind. It's not as far from the city as what I expected, and some bikes are available for free. The atmosphere is very peaceful. At night you can hear the insects, and see the stars. The onsen part is great. There is an outdoor bath and two indoor baths. All of them are great and can be privatized, which makes the experience not stressfull at all. The breakfast is also very nice, cooked and served by the owners (I guess).
Cons: Nothing.

10.0 Excellent
Pros: An amazingly authentic experience in a traditional Japanese ryokan. Every staff member was extremely friendly and welcoming. The onsite onsens were divine and practically empty most of the times. The room I stayed in had really nice views of the surrounding mountains and the well-manicured Japanese garden. Will definitely stay here again if I ever revisit Oita prefecture.
9.3 Excellent
Pros: We were almost overwhelmed by the peacefulness and the quality in every detail at this traditional Japanese guesthouse. The room was as beautiful as the whole property, the food excellent in all aspects (taste, serving in the room, beauty of the presentations and multitude of different elements of each meal), the friendly and polite staff, the relaxation offered by accessing the four different baths (onsen), the range of products available in the gift shop and the location close both to the lake and the town center as well as to other onsen to discover in Yufuin. An unforgettable experience!
Cons: No remarks really. This is a traditional Japanese guesthouse so you need to be prepared to sit on the floor to eat and to sleep on futon beds on the floor, which could be slightly demanding depending on physical condition but then again this makes part of the feeling of staying in a traditional and genuine ryokan.
10.0 Excellent
Pros: The staff who serves us all the time is a girl who speaks English very well. It’s a dicent boutique ousen hotel in the heart zone of Yufuin. The three hotels share four onsens together.

Cons: None.
