This popular ryokan surrounded by the Kuju Mountain Range in Oita prefecture is one of the best in Sujiyu Onsen.
All 10 rooms are separated and are equipped with unique private open-air onsen that use 100% fresh hot spring water. The rooms enjoy a great reputation for their interior design as well, arranged to look like a traditional Japanese-style house.
You can get a feeling of the gentle character of the owner in this hot spring hotel.
The “Kuju ‘Dream’ Grand Suspension Bridge,” which boasts to be the highest and longest of Japan, is a must-visit too.
