清流山水花 あゆの里
Ryokan Ayunosato

casual Ryokan/Inn


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.

Read more relux掲載の写真通り、大変綺麗なロビー・客室でした。 ウエルカムドリンクも手の込んだもので、滞在に期待感が増した。 あゆの里を選んで良かったと思った瞬間でした。 夕食もこちらの好みを反映してくださり大変ありがたく、感動しました。 大浴場のビールサービスも粋な心遣いで有難かったです。 以下、数点改善希望点があるのでお伝えします。 ・大浴場のビールサービスは女性風呂にも欲しい。 ・季節的に難しい点もあるのでしょうが、露天風呂の天井に蜘蛛の巣が点在し不潔感が…露天風呂ベランダ手すりの鳩のフンも同様でした。 ・玄関スロープのところと大浴場の中に水の出ていない(使用していない?)設備があった。水が出るべきものから出ていないと、一気に廃墟感が出ると思う。 ・朝食は種類は豊富だったが、いたって普通でした。夕食が素晴らしかっただけにギャップが大きなものになりました。業者向け食材だと思いますが、味にもう一捻り欲しいところです。 色々申しましたが、九州内を中心に年間10泊ほど温泉旅館に宿泊します。 貴宿は接客も丁寧で総じて良いお宿だと感じました。 またお世話になりたいと思いますので、是非改善していただければと思います。

According to the photos on relux, it was a very beautiful lobby / room. Welcome drink was also elaborate, expectation increased for stay. It was the moment I thought it was good to pick Ayu no Sato. Dinner reflected this preference, thank you very much, I was deeply impressed. The beer service of the large public bath was also a wonderful thing with a warm heart. Below, I will tell you because there are a few improvement desired points. · I also want a big bathhouse beer service for women bath. · There seems to be a seasonal difficult point, but spider webs are scattered on the ceiling of the outdoor bath and feeling of filth is unclean ... The outdoor bath Veranda The dove of the handrail was similar as well. · There was facilities in the entrance slope and in the public bath without water (not used?) Facilities. If water does not come out of what should go out, I think that it will feel ruins at once. · The breakfast was rich in variety, but it was normal as usual. The dinner was wonderful and the gap became big. I think that it is a food for traders, but I want another taste. Although I mentioned a lot, I stay in a hot spring inn about 10 nights a year mainly in Kyushu. I felt that your hotel is a nice accommodation polite and good overall. I think that I would like to take care of you again, so I hope you improve it.
