Fodor's Review

From the outdoor baths of this rustic lodge you can watch the mineral water meander down the rocky cliffs of the green mountainside. Don't be shy—mixed bathing is often practiced here. Two meals are included in the rates, and dinner is served in your Japanese-style room. The lobby has a raftered ceiling and a toasty old-fashioned furnace. It's a cozy place to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea. From Kumamoto, take the JR Hohi Line to Tateno Station and then taxi (20 minutes ¥2,700).
