RYOKANS providing rooms with private open-air baths
Book Hotel Ryokan Ayunosato in Hitoyoshi Onsen (Kumamoto)—— Located in a basin surrounded by the Kyushu Mountains, this ryokan stands next to the Kuma River, one of the three most rapid rivers of Japan. Its luxurious guest rooms are popular, with private open-air onsen baths and a great view of the river and the ruined Hitoyoshi Castle. Endowed with its own hot spring source said to promote beautiful skin, the ryokan offers a variety of hot spring experiences including separate male/female large public baths and drinkable hot spring water. Dining is also excellent, with creative kaiseki meals which are a fusion of Japanese and western-style food specially prepared by the head chef, and Kuma Shochu, a type of distilled spirit indigenous to the drainage area of the Kuma River.
