A hot spring trip with my wife as a memory of 35th wedding anniversary

We’re going to have 35th wedding anniversary soon. I’m looking for an accommodation with a hot spring around Aso for 2 nights 3 days because I’d like to express my gratitude to my wife. Please give me information about an accommodation with great view from open air bath and delicious meals.

hospitality

I’d like you to stay at Kagaya in the Wakura hot-spring area in the Ishikawa prefecture. The meal is delicious and their hospitality is marvellous. They look after you and nothing is to be desired. You can feel as if you are in the real hot-spring place. You won’t want to stay at other hotels, once you stay there. On your anniversary, please stay!

You can relax in the Mother Nature of Aso

The bath is excellent. They have an open-air hot-spring, the inside bathroom and the sauna. You won’t get bored even if you stay in the hotel all day long. They have foot-bathing with small fish which eat the hard skin on your feet. The spa with 13 different effects is superb.

the house with the unique arched roof

I had been personally involved in creating their pamphlet of this facility. (It hasn’t been completed, though.) The open-air hot-springs are dotted around in the 2,000-tsubo (6,600 ㎡). The open feeling is superb. The accommodations are dome-shaped cottage-type buildings, so you don’t have to worry about next door guests. When I was gathering the information, they only had buffet-styled meals. It may not be your cup of tea.

There is an open-air hot-spring with the magnificent view.

You can enjoy the Aso mountain range and the vast land from the open-air hot-spring. From the spacious big bathroom, you can see right across the 5 mountains in the Aso mountain range. The meal is buffet-styled, but they have high-class Japanese cuisine with high quality and was satisfactory, focusing on the Black-cow beef of Aso. The room was western-styled, but it was very spacious. You can see the grand Aso mountain range through the window of your room. It is such a good inn for relaxing, enjoying the nature.

You can have the Black-cow beef for your meal.

It is located at the foot of Mt. Aso. You can see the Aso mountain ranges from the open-air hot-spring. The rock-bath is charming. The room is spacious and fashionable. You can have home-made Black-cow beef for your meal. Among many hotels, it is an unusual hotel, as they prepare cow meat by themselves. I suggest that you should drive there.

You can enjoy the service of the classy Japanese-styled inn.

The staff’s responses were marvellous. The atmosphere of the dining area was very comfortable and the staff who helped their guests were very pleasant too. The delicious meal was satisfactory and the bath as well as the atmosphere was very charming. The open-air hot-spring with the waterfall was splendid. I could spend my time relaxed in the wonderful nature.

the rural hot-spring in the mountains in Southern Aso

It is located to the South-east from Mt. Aso. If you drive, you need to go down Mt. Aso towards the South and then go to the East and then climb up the mountain again. I visited Beppu and Yufuin, but this one is really good. It is the Yamaguchi Inn in the Tarutama hot-spring. 〒869-1404 2331 Kawayu Aso-mura(village) Aso-gun(county) Kumamoto-ken(prefecture).Popularkeyword: Kajikano·rotenburo·Takinoyu·daiyokujo·senshitsu

It is the hot-spring hotel with a grand view on the mountain in the Nichinan-city in the Miyazaki prefecture.

It is a hot-spring hotel on the mountain in the Kitago hot-spring area in the Nichinan-city in the Miyazaki prefecture. The golf course is attached to it, so if you play golf, it will be perfect. As it is in the mountains, the scenery from the open-air hot-spring is brilliant. There are few things around the hotel, so you can really relax.

the hotel attached to the golf course

The former Prince Hotel Aso became Granvrio Aso in the Route-inn Group. The charge has become reasonable, keeping the similar standard as before. It is good to stroll on the golf course in the evening. The number of restaurants will satisfy you. Driving a rent-a-car is the best way to visit places in the Aso region. If you book one from the Orix Rental Car through the Route-inn HP, you can rent a car for the cheaper price.

the resort hotel which represents Aso

The Uchinomaki hot-spring is located in the southern part of Mt. Aso. It is the hot-spring area where you can have a view of the grand Mt. Aso. Especially, as the open-air hot-spring is on the top floor, the view from there is marvellous. On the fine day, Mt. Aso can be clearly seen.

It hasn’t been spoiled by sightseers and is a relaxing hot-spring area

How about the Kurokawa hot-spring, extending your trip? My recommendation is Kurokawa-so with the calm atmosphere, the delicious meal and the open-air hot-spring. If you buy Tegata(a commercial paper) at the inn, you can visit other hot-springs at other inns. It is not spoiled by sightseers like Yufuin. You can stroll around in your Yukata with your husband.
