ゆふいん月燈庵
Yufuin Gettouan

Ryokan/Inn

Overview

Within a space of ten thousand square meters there stand 18 separate villas with open-air baths. This inn surrounded by great nature was named Gettouan a name originating from the hermitage (an) enjoying the light (tou) of the moon (getsu).

If you take a step in to the main building, reconstructed from a 300-year-old home, details such as the wide strong pillars and high beams give a distinct atmosphere of a traditional Japanese construction.

The paths and bridges on the way to the cottage emphasize the moonlight.

In rooms that thematize "tea room" from the good old days, you will find the vividness and richness of the four seasons in Japan. It feels as though your body is taking a deep breath when you take an open-air bath surrounded by forest. This is precisely an experience to ease the mind and body.

The cuisine served is a Japanese traditional kaiseki banquet with every dish prepared with close attention to every detail including color, flavor, and smell.

In this inn you will spend a happy time feeling the best quality of hospitality which was came about through a slow flow of time at Yufuin.

The food is great and the service is excellent and the staff are super! Thank you for making my stay so memorable. The ONLY thing I can think of that needs improving is the for the two OSENS that are for the luxury suites. The waiting area is at the outdoor. We have no way to know if it is in use until we walked there and when it is in use, it is too cold to wait outside so we have to go back to our rooms and come back out again to try. One night I have walk back and forth 3 times in order to get in. So maybe you can develop a better system. BUT overall, I love this place and will come back again. I will recommend to all my friends.

Thank you very much for your help. I slowly rested. Especially cooking and staff are amazing. I went to a famous restaurant in various places, but I was impressed with the menu, the material, the instrument, the wonderful sense. However, it is regrettable that the book is poor though there is a nice lounge. While roaring in the room, Iwanami Bunko was something, it was awesome.

特別室とスタンダードプランでの差別化をもっとはかると良いと思います。 特別室専用貸切露天風呂が2つ有りますが、コンセプトを二通りにするとより満足度が高まると思います。

I think it would be better to differentiate between special rooms and standard plans. There are two private private-purpose outdoor open-air baths, but I think that the satisfaction level will be raised if the concept is made in two ways.
