I decided to come to Japan for honeymoon. I have always wanted to experience Japanese style of living. So I chose to stay in Ryokan at Kirishima. We had a very good experience staying at Ryokojin Sanso. The staffs are friendly. They specially prepared fresh flowers to welcome us as a newly wed couple. The food was excellent. Ryokojin Sanso...

My stay in Ryokojin Sanso was the most enjoyable one that I have ever had. This was my first visit to Kirishima. We spent one night from 28/8 - 29/8. We have booked a Japanese Style Room for 2 person. Check-in process was quick. Staff were very friendly and helpful. I found no difficulty in communicating with the staff in...

This hotel is surrounded by nature and you'll be welcomed by birds and deer. We reserved a room with outdoor onsen at the patio and it was so relaxing and peaceful. They use natural hotspring water and it was "kakenagashi" style (the hotspring water runs constantly into tub). As I came from California, I was a little bit worried about...

夫婦で宿泊しました。予約を入れた段階で、貸切露天風呂に関するご案内や、食べられない物の照会なども丁寧にしてくださり、行く前から期待していました。実際、行ってみて予想通り、スタッフの方々の対応はとても親切で、また食事は夕食も朝食も手を掛けたのが分かるようなとても美味しい料理で、また眺望も素晴らしかったです。ハイライトはやはり温泉。2種類の源泉があるようですが、中でも硫黄泉は肌もスベスベになり、また香りも温泉を強く意識させるようなものでした。ぜひお勧めします。 I am confident that you should definitely stay there with 2 meals even if you feel it is a little expensive. Their service is wonderful and you will be impressed by how they treat you so kindly. The best one is "Onsen"(hot springs"). Not only can you use the shared big bath but also you can use the independent...

Their service are so wonderful! I receive email from them the next day I reserve the hotel. They will check with you to see when you arrive, any food you can't take and to help you to reserve the private bath. They can also pick you up from the bus stop! So nice!

This hotel is located high in a hill, it is suitable for those who drive with a car. However, you can enjoy a nice view in the room and the onsen in return. I think it worth! When we arrived, the staff serve us well. They are very sincere and polite. Unlike other onsen hotels, this hotel offers onsen clothing...

We stayed in room 203 which was a Japanese-Western style room with private onsen in balcony. The layout of stony onsen and sun-deck chairs in balcony was very comfortable. Twin beds were available and we were also offered the choice of setting futons in Japanese tatami living room which was much preferable. There were 42 rooms in this 5 storey...

I traveled to this hotel with Japanese friends and really did not know what to expect. When I entered the lobby it did not have the traditional Japanese charm I had hoped for, and this appeared to be case as far as the decor, but it was not an issue. It is the onsens (hot springs) and the surrounding nature...

For someone who enjoys going to Japan for their on-sen (hot spring), and wants to avoid crowds of people, Kagoshima can be a good choice. They have excellent small Japanese-style hotels, very friendly service and good for a relaxing holiday. This hotel has got a few outdoor on-sen separate from the main hotel premises and you need to go into...
