Yamaga no Yado Tsukasa

Yamaga is a hot spring resort town on the Kikuchi River in the mountains about 27 kilometers north of Kumamoto city in Kyushu. Other than the onsens, its main attraction is a rather fine Kabuki theatre.

There are no budget business hotels in the town, only ryokan, and I was wary of having to pay the normally higher prices at onsen ryokan, so I was pleasantly surprised by the prices at Yamaga no Yado Tsukasa.

It's a large ryokan located right on the river bank and big enough to handle wedding banquets etc. My room, with a view out to the river, was 8 tatami, with a separate sitting area by the window.

There was also a small extra room with fridge, kettle, space for luggage etc. Toilet and bathroom were en-suite, but being an onsen it had a large public bath. It was the least hot onsen I have experienced in Japan, which was not bad.

They have larger rooms, and some with beds rather than futons.

For the room without any meals I paid only 3,800 yen.
