Slow-stay in Yunomine Onsen

Onsen Minshuku Wadama is tucked away on a small sidewalk in the middle of Yunomine Onsen, Japan’s spiritual hot spring.  The building was originally the small settlement’s post office and now serves as a place to stay.  The entrance and main floor are classic Japanese architecture with tatami mat flooring, sliding paper doors and rich dark wood rafters (which are low, so watch your head!).  The original post office room now features a western style bed.  The baths are classic filled with pure hot spring water heated in the depths of the earth’s surface.  Meals are vegan with local ingredients.  The owner wishes to host couples and small groups that are interested in the history and atmosphere of this older home and the onsen culture of Yunomine Onsen.

Only one booking per day.

◆Sorry, we can not accept single travelers.
