Minshuku Yunotaniso

Yunomine Onsen (Hongu) Minshuku

Minshuku Yunotaniso is small guesthouse run by the Kikuchi family and is located at the upper end of the small hot spring village, Yunomine Onsen.   The 7 guestrooms are Japanese style. The Hototogisu room has ensuite toilet facilities. There are both indoor and outdoor hot spring baths in the minshuku.  The high content of minerals in the water makes small white deposits called  "Yu-no-hana" or "hot spring flowers". It is a sign of a very good quality, pure hot spring. The owners enjoy preparing delicious handmade Japanese meals for guests, which are served in a communal dining area.
