Minshuku Kuraya is a small guesthouse with over 100 years of history and features traditional Japanese construction. It is located by the creek in the middle of the Yunomine Onsen hot spring village. Minshuku Kuraya serves local “family” meals and the hot spring bath is open 24 hours. The communal dining room is surrounded by sliding shoji paper screen doors. The guestrooms look out onto the village. For those looking for an authentic guesthouse with Japanese architecture this is a good choice.Minshuku Kuraya can only accept reservations 2 to 3 months or less in advance.
Thank you for your understanding.

Vegetarianism is not common in the Japanese countryside. Please double-check the Vegetarian Type which the service provider can accommodate to make sure that it meets your needs. Often being able to eat trace amounts of the ubiquitous Katsuo Dashi (fish stock) makes it easier to find options.
NOTE: It is difficult and not culturally sensitive to change meal requests, or make new meal demands, onsite when you arrive at accommodations. Vegetarian types must be confirmed during the reservation process and respected during your visit.
