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.

This is a classic onsen bath with hot thermal waters. There are no shower heads, so water is scoped with small bath buckets.

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.
