Hinoyama Onsen Dondokoyu火の山温泉どんどこ湯

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath

Approximately a 40 minute drive from the Kumamoto Interchange off of the Kyushu Expressway, this facility boasts the largest acreage in West Japan for a hot springs spa resort, and adjoins the Arden Hotel Aso. In total, the waters for all of the 13 baths, for women and men, are direct flowing sulfate spring waters said to be beneficial for hardening of the arteries, and external cuts. The pride of the resort is its luxurious outdoor garden bath rustically designed with natural trees, and large lava boulders. The restaurant, coin massage corner, and free relaxation lounge are recommended. The shop selling the local Aso vegetables and farm products are also a treat. Lodging guests of the Arden Hotel Aso may bathe as many times as they wish for free.

ホテル併設の温泉施設です。

どんどこ湯は西日本最大級の規模といわれています。

浴場内はとても広く、ゆったりとできます。

庭園の中にある露天風呂は格別です。

ハンドタオルは1枚100円で販売、バスタオルは1枚100円で貸出となっています。

できれば、どちらも持ち込むとよいでしょう。

なお、アーデンホテル阿蘇の宿泊者はもちろん無料で入浴できます。

          Kumamoto lies in the center of Kyushu, a calm prefecture perfect for easy strolls around the historic center and lazy evenings in the natural hot springs at Kurokawa Onsen. For a slightly more strenuous activity, head to Mount Aso, whose surrounding hills offer hiking opportunities aplenty with views over the active volcano.
