Yakakutei (数寄の宿野鶴亭)


Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath

A long-standing ryokan inn, one of the top in the Hinatayama Onsen hot spring district. In addition to the guest rooms in the main building, the inn has five detached tea ceremony arbor-style Japanese rooms which emphasize elegance and taste. These detached rooms are also equipped with their own outdoor bath. The hotel’s outdoor baths, indoor bathing area, and dedicated outdoor baths of the detached rooms are filled from the Hinatayama Onsen hot spring, whose waters are said to beautify the skin and were a favorite of samurai Saigo Takamori’s. The inn’s bathhouse offers a full array of amenities, as well, making it a perfect destination for non-guests in the area who suddenly feel the desire to enjoy a hot spring day trip. The inn serves authentic kaiseki course cuisine made with seasonal ingredients from Kagoshima; the Japanese garden visible from the dining area is attractive on clear days but gains a particular elegance during rainy weather. The inn’s name means the “Field Crane Arbor,” and like the tired crane resting its weary wings in a lush field, customers can come here to relax and ease away their cares.

          Kagoshima Areas


          Over 100 active volcanoes across Kagoshima make it one of the Japan's most exciting prefectures. The prefectural capital, Kagoshima city, looks out to one of the prefecture's most spectacular volcanoes, Sakurajima, an island of its own that can be visited and seen close up or admired from afar, with the promise of breathtaking sunsets complete with frequent puffs of smoke and ash. Down the Satsuma Peninsula, the most southerly part of mainland Japan, waterfalls, sand onsen, and fascinating history await, while Kagoshima's abundance of satsuma imo (sweet potato) provide a wholesome snack as well as one of Japan's favourite drinks - shochu.
