Riverside Minshuku

Minshuku Yunosato is a small guesthouse 1 kilometer south of Yunomine Onsen hot spring and is run by a friendly second generation family. 

Minshuku Yunosato overlooks the beautiful Yomura-gawa river, a popular swimming hole for locals during the summer. 

With pictures of their family in the communal dining room, dog outside the front door, and fish tank in the lobby, it has the atmosphere of a home stay. 

The water for the indoor and outdoor hot spring baths is sourced from Yunomine Onsen. The outdoor rotenburo (available for private use) is near the bridge down a steep staircase, near the river. 

Family members are fishermen and their catch of Ayu sweetfish is often on the menu.
