casual Ryokan/Inn
Ryokan Ayunosato / Kumamoto Hitoyoshi・Kuma 10


Hitoyoshi is situated in the middle of Kyushu and south of Kumamoto. Ryokan Ayunosato is located by the Kuma River, one of the three fastest rivers in Japan. 

You can see the Hitoyoshi castle ruins across the river and the mountains of the southern Kyushu area in the horizon. Bathing with a view of the Kuma River will certainly be one of the happiest moments of your stay. 

Potassium bicarbonate salts in the Hitoyoshi hot spring water can make your skin smooth and beautiful. 

The guest rooms provide a sophisticated ""relaxing space"". Nature is depicted wonderfully, just like a fine art painting, from the windows of the room. 

Being surrounded by rivers and mountains, makes Hitoytoshi a ""great source of food"" as well. 
We prepare meals from the season's best ingredients that are grown locally in the richness of nature and we also take great care to cook the stocks carefully in order to serve you a beautiful and delicious dish. 
For guests who are fond of alcohol, we have a series of world-class "Kuma Shochu". 

Local sceneries, nature, trains, hot springs, Kuma River rafting (limited seasons only), Kuma Shochu - Enjoy various local attractions and make the most of your stay at Ayunosato.

【2-3 guests】Japanese western room with outdoor spa (8 ㎡+twin bed)

10日間の九州旅行最終日に宿泊しましたが、施設・食事・接客共に素晴らしく感激しました。 自宅から近ければ時々伺いたいのですが、遠いのが残念です。 でも、是非再度お伺いしたく思っています、お世話になりました。

I stayed on the last day of my 10-day trip to Kyushu, and I was impressed with the facilities, food, and customer service. I sometimes want to ask if I'm close from home, but I'm sorry that it's far away. But I would like to come back again.

Read more 熊本の友人を訪ねながら宿泊させていただきました。好立地に温泉露天風呂付の清潔感ある居心地よい客室には大変満足いたしました。友人への誕生日のサプライズプレゼントにも感謝しております。 ここからは少し辛口になりますが感じたままを。(主にお料理に関してです) まずプランに付いていたハイボールなのですがほとんど水のようで全くおいしくありませんでした。グラスも大きく普段私はたくさん飲む方なので,球磨焼酎を色々嗜もうと思っていたのですが,あれでブレーキがかかってしまいました。サービスとして付けるのであればもう少し考えられた方がよろしいかと思います。お肉料理の時にお願いしたグラスワイン赤は冷たすぎるし不味かったです。 最上級会席ということで期待していました。まず先付は美しく料理の始まりを楽しくさせるもので良かったのですが大豆シートはひとり2枚あった方が良いのでは?またシートの切り方がきたなかった。 前菜の白あえたいへん美味しかった。カボチャの種で見立てた松かさも良かったです。お造り,生の鮎はほとんど頂かないので個人的には3切れもあれば良い。焼き物美味しくいただきました。もう少し小ぶりでも良い。蓼酢は合っているとは感じなかった。 サービスのサツマイモのグラタン?せっかくですがあの半分の量でよいのでは?あまりにも野暮ったい。コースにも合っていないしその次の伊勢海老のお料理と被ります。その伊勢海老ですが美味しく感じませんでした。箸で食べるなら身をはずして大まかに切って欲しい。友人は生焼けだと残しました。牛は油っこく不味かった。総じて会席全体のバランスやボリュームは再考された方が宜しいかと思いました。 「女将の」ハイボール「女将の」サービスのひと皿「女将」からお誕生日のと再々言われても,残念な気持ちがします。食事の最後にでもちらりとお見えになるのかと思っていました。 最後に朝食ですが,普通でした。バイキングでは,美味しいと思ったものは通常お代わりするのですがこれと言って無く。コーンスープは紙パックで売っているレベル(間違っていたらすみません)カレーは塩辛い,一番美味しかったのはヨーグルトでした。普通より上級のお宿であるならば普通以上の朝食をお願いします。今後に期待します。

I stayed while visiting a friend in Kumamoto. We were very pleased with the clean and cozy rooms with a hot spring open-air bath in a good location. I am also grateful for my birthday surprise gift for my friend. From here it will be a bit dry, but feel as it is. (Mainly about cooking) First of all, it was a highball attached to the plan, but it was almost watery and was not delicious at all. The glass is big and I usually drink a lot, so I was thinking about using Kuma Shochu in various ways. I think that it is better to think a little more if it is attached as a service. The glass wine red that I requested at the time of meat cooking was too cold and tasteless. I was expecting it to be a superlative banquet. First of all, it was nice to have a beautiful start-up, but it would be nice to have two soy sheets per person. Moreover, how to cut a sheet was not good. The appetizer was delicious. The pinecone that was made with pumpkin seeds was also good. There are almost 3 raw slices, so I need only 3 slices. Thank you for the delicious pottery. A little smaller. I didn't feel that the vinegar matched. Service sweet potato gratin? Isn't it all right to use half that amount? I want to leave too much. It is not suitable for the course and will be worn with the next dish of Ise shrimp. It was the Ise shrimp but did not feel delicious. If you want to eat with chopsticks, take it off and cut it roughly. The friend left it to be burnt. The cow was greasy. Overall, I thought it would be better to reconsider the balance and volume of the entire banquet. Even if it is said that it is a birthday again from the "lady general" highball "lady general" service dish "lady general", I feel sorry. I was wondering if you could glance at the end of the meal. Finally, it was normal for breakfast. Vikings usually replace what you think is delicious, but that's not to say. The level of corn soup sold in paper packs (sorry if wrong) curry was salty and the most delicious was yogurt. If you are in a hotel that is more advanced than usual, please ask for an extra breakfast. I expect it in the future.

It was inconvenient that the dryer in the room was old and there wasn't much wind for the heat. Other than that, the hot water was good, the staff were also good impression, the rice was delicious, and it was a hotel that I would like to come to stay again.
