Myoken Ishiharaso

4376–Kareigawa, Hayatocho, Kirishima, Kagoshima-ken, 899-5113, Japan

This lodging sits alongside a river with such ferocious rapids that you might feel you're being plunged right into the drama of nature on arrival. Most of the rooms are new and modern and overlook the river, so you can always hear the rushing waters. There is a rotemburo (outdoor hot spring) for mixed bathing that sits on the edge of the river and another private outdoor hot-spring pool that you can book in advance—both are wonderful. After bathing, enjoy an incredible full-course Japanese dinner that along with breakfast is included in the room rate. The ingredients in both meals are fresh, seasonal, and cooked to the highest standards. Vegetarian options are available. Weekday rates much more reasonable than on weekends or Japanese holidays.
