We are a family of six and will go to Yufuin. Our four children are quite bubbly, so do you know any child-friendly hot spring inn in Yufuin, where our kids don’t bother other visitors. Can you let us know if any.

They offer plans for families

Hello. My recommended inn is right near the Oita motorway Yufuin interchange. It is called Hanayoshi. The room charge would be within your budget. In addition to open-air baths separated by genders overlooking Oyama, they offer plans with rooms with private hot spring baths. Wi-Fi is available.

They have very big Japanese style rooms

You can stay comfortably as a group of six because there are spacious Japanese-style rooms with 2 serial rooms in the main building. The room is bright and clean, and has great views from the windows. There are family hot spring baths, so you can relax with your family without hesitation to anyone, and also large public baths are pleasant and have nice views. Meals are served in a dining area. Very delicious, and Japanese Wagyu black beef was the best.

Ok with kids

We stayed at this inn with our 2-year-old kid and parents to see our relatives in Oita in March. It was a detached room with an open-air bath, so it was good that we could take a bath many times, having fun with my kid. Meals were served in a dining area, but there are many families with kids so I think you can enjoy without hesitation.

There are cottage guest rooms with private outdoor baths

My parents stayed there, and they said that it was an inn you could stay with your children without hesitation.
If you stay in a detached room, it wouldn’t be a nuisance to other customers by making some noise. It is spacious, and I think children will be happy there.
There is also a bath with normal tap water in a room so people with allergy don’t have to worry.
I do not know what they have, but you can borrow a DVD at the front desk and watch it on a big screen in your room.

Spend luxuriously leisurely time and in a detached room

Congratulations for your 30-year marriage.

We went to "Hanayoshi" for the first time two years ago, because the review score was very high. And now we became regular guests. There are detached rooms in the “Yume no Sato” building, separated from the main building, and those rooms are great. The spacious rooms are equipped with a hot spring so you can stay relaxed. You can overlook Mt. Yufu from your room, and it is real luxury to enjoy the landscape, immersing yourself in hot springs. Food is delicious, and my husband and I have repeatedly visited the inn. I hope you can spend great time together.

All my family was satisfied

We stayed a total of 6 people altogether with grandparents, parents, and brothers. Everyone could stay in the same room. Location is in the heart of the Yufuin basin, and 8-minute walk from JR Yufuin Station is convenient. You can overlook majestic Mt. Yufu from both men and women open-air baths. The staff was helpful, and dinner and breakfast were both better than I expected.

There are a lot of bath that a family can use

It takes about 30 minutes from Yufuin, but it is cheap and there are 24 baths.
Guests like to take a picture with the advertising manager, ‘Angel’ the Samoyed dog.
I think children can enjoy as well.
I believe you can relax in nature better than Yufuin.
There is a horse riding club called El Rancho Grande nearby. Even beginners can ride a horse right away and take a walk.

Cozy and laid-bac

You can relax as there are not many rooms in the inn. There are reservable open-air baths and I could enjoy snow from there in the winter.
Above all, food is delicious☆ It was substantial but fairly reasonable. It was our memorable winter trip to Yufuin. Oh, they will come and pick you up at a station.

All rooms have open-air baths

The reason why I definitely want to recommend this inn is because all rooms are equipped with open-air baths and indoor baths. I believe you as a couple will be satisfied with calm atmosphere of the room, and lively kids can scream and shout to some extent in an open-air bath in a room. I think your kids will be happy with meals of sukiyaki and others.
