Ryokojin Sansou (旅行人山荘)


Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath

A long-standing hotel established in 1917. The 165 thousand square meter hotel grounds sprawl in a quiet, natural forest. The hotel was formerly the Maruo Ryokan inn, where famous authors and poets such as Akiko Yosano, Mokichi Saito, and Ujo Noguchi stayed and left their handwritten works. The hotel’s bathhouse is supplied by a simple spring and a simple sulfur spring, and bathers can relax in a large indoor bath or outdoor bath. The waters of the simple spring can also be drunk for health benefits. The bathhouse is open to non-guests, and the hotel also boasts four outdoor baths which can be privately reserved for ultimate relaxation. The hotel serves traditional Japanese kaiseki course cuisine made with seasonal ingredients from Kagoshima.

          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.
