“Quite small Onsen”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2012

On your trail to Hongu we made a detour and stopped an Yunomine. We stayed there two days. It was amazing coming down through the dense forest and smelling first the hot termal water before seeing the village. The village is quite small and is situated along the river. The ryokan lies perfectly almost on the hiking trail to Hongu and just a few steps away from the bus stop. The Ryokan has quite large rooms. The rooms were clean and the stuff was very friendly. The food was tasty and we enjoyed it.
There are an indoor and an outdoor bath. The outdoor bath is very special when you can go out in the night and enjoy the really hot water.
In the village there are some springs where you can put eggs and cook it in the hot water

After a 13 hours flight, we rented a car at KIX and drove into the sacred moutains to deep immediately in the far Japan. What a surprise at Yonomine village!! There is a great onsen and a wonderful place to stay: the Yoshinoya Ryokan.

People at the ryokan speak a very limited english. Whatever, they do their best to welcome thier guests. They propose great tatami rooms with access to a private onsen. It is a dream to take a bath in a natural place and relax after a long journey.

There is no restaurant in the village, so the full board is required. Very nice food.

For the price, it is a very good deal. Sure we will stay there again. A very nice souvenir.

We stayed here for a night month to recuperate from our 40km 2-day Kumano Kodo pilgrimage trail walk. The best thing was the private rotenburo that is fed by the same spring that supplies Tsuboyu (the only UNESCO world heritage site) Downside is that bathing times can't be reserved so you may have to spend hours waiting for it (or give up and go to the common separate-sex indoor bath)

Otherwise everything else was good but not great compared to the other ryokans in the same price range that we've stayed elsewhere in Japan.

Yunomine itself is truly a spa town. There is hardly any shopping and very few restaurants.
