We stayed in 3 Onsen hotels respctively in Beppu, Kurokawa & here for our 6 day trip in Kyushu. Although the room was very small, they provided the best service & Onsen...

Wife and I reserved a standard Japanese room and chose to top up for the special wagyu beef and kurobuta set meal. Both meals were held in the room and it was an enjoyable experience. Service staff was pleasant and friendly. Dinner and breakfast itself was only average. Best dish was wagyu steak. Room came with a separate living room...

Echo with all positive reviews! The staff who took care of us during our stay understands basic English. View of the private outdoor onsen is simply beautiful, breathtaking! If you have chance do try traveling to Yufuin via the scenic train - Yufuin no Mori.

It was “that picture” I saw each time I searched for Yufuin onsen that made me seek and seek until I found that that view was from Musouen. The hotel is located on a hill south of the Yufuin town center. The ground was surrounded by lush green trees and moss. The hotel buildings were low-rise and very natural. There...

This is a basic fee taxi from Yufuin Station. I visited this place twice. Once staying in ryo-ka, Once using spa . I think that Spa better than ryo-kan. Large bath scenery is amazing. You will see Yufuin Mt in large bath.

Stayed in end March and throughly enjoyed this onsen. It is away from the main town of Yufuin so best if you have your own car. The the service is impeccable and all the staff make us feel welcomed. Some staff speaks english but even for the ones that do not, it doesn't stop them from being most helpful. The...

Oita is known for the millions of hot spring ryokans and Musouen in Yufuin is a very nice ryokan in this onsen town. The food (dinner) is great but the baths, especially the roten-buro or the outside baths are unbelievable. Yufuin was not famous until recent time but the onsen village is now known as one of the most popular...

Many hotels in Yufuin have in-room private onsen, but Musouen has the biggest outdoor onsen in the area. That is the reason I chose this hotel. My husband and I stayed there for two nights in a standard Japanese room. We took a taxi from the train station to reach the hotel. The fare was 700 yen. If you want...

This is a Japanese style onsen hotel. We had a huge room at the relatively new side building, with its small onsen indoor bath. The public outdoor baths for men and women (separate) are spacious and have fantastic views of the Yufudake mountain. There are two private outdoor baths with mountain view and free access. The outdoor baths are so...
