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)


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.

I chose it as a present for my parents. It seems that the facility was far from being described. I did not eat as much as I thought, and I was not very happy. It is very disappointing. I was told that only the bath was good. As the age group is higher, I may be such an impression but I am disappointed. Because it was never cheap.

部屋からの眺めも良く、お風呂も料理も良かったです。 お世話になりました。また行きたいです。 主人はお風呂上がりの生ビールがサイコーに冷えてて美味しかったと言ってました。 接客サービスも行き届き良かったです。

The view from the room was good and the bath and food were good. thank you for helping me. I want to go again. My husband said that the draft beer after the bath was delicious after chilling to Psycho. The customer service was also good.
