Family-run Minshuku

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 3 months or less in advance.
Thank you for your understanding.
