Cordial Minshuku

Minshuku Yamane is a small family-run guesthouse in the quaint hot spring village of Yunomine Onsen.  The entrance is hidden behind a lush, well-loved garden and pond. This courteous and gracious minshuku is run by the cordial Yamane family.  The hot spring bath is open 24 hours and filled with constantly flowing thermal water.  Meals are hand-made with local ingredients.  Interacting with other guests in the communal dining area is great way to get to know your fellow travellers.

◆Sorry, we can not accept single travelers.

◆Sorry, one night only per visit. No consecutive nights stay available.
