Kyushu: Onsen Paradise – Unique Hot Springs You Can Enjoy

Onsen (hot springs) are my favourite places to visit whenever I am in Japan. I make a point of going to one or more and if I can combine this with a stay in a Japanese ryokan then that is even better. Kyushu is known for its volcanoes and with the volcanic activity comes a huge variety of wonderful onsen that you can visit and appreciate. […]

Beppu, Japan: A Day of Onsen, Nature & Food!- Kyushu

  Recently, I spent a day in Beppu, in Oita prefecture, Kyushu, and I loved it so much, I had to write about it! Beppu Onsen, as the name suggests, is well known for being one of the largest onsen towns in Japan! The hot spring water of hundreds of public baths is sourced from eight different springs! The eight springs are named Beppu Onsen, Kannawa […]

Very well done of the recommendations.

Hi Paul, Just got into Tokyo, and back into the world of free hotel WiFi. The ryokans may be terrific, but wi-fi isn’t one oftheir strengths.. So far, it has been terrific! All connections worked really well. Everything is so much easier than when I was in Japan last time, about 100 years ago. Lots of English spoken; buses, trains, subways all do signs and announcements in English now. Before there was none […]

Valuable Local Knowledge

Hey Akiko,   I had no idea about the tattoos in the baths! That’s so strange (hello Japan lol)   In that case – we will go western style rooms throughout all of the trip if that is ok, anything on free-sell around the 200-240 per night would be great!   I will tell him the sad news and will get the payment as soon as […]

Everything went so smoothly

Hi Kathy,   How have you been?  Just want to thank you for having organised such a great trip to Japan for us  again!   Everything went so smoothly , this time, we specially enjoyed the stay in hotels as the breakfast was 100 times better than the youth hostel ones. We didn’t need to carry luggage as often as we used to, what a relief! […]

Fabulous Trip

Dear Yoko-san   I hope you are well. The trip was fabulous. I had a very enjoyable time. Everything went well, the food was delicious and the hot springs were soothing.

Takayama – a great opportunity to experience a ryokan

We felt blessed when we were greeted by the lovely guide at Osaka airport after a long queue for fingerprinting, face recognition etc. Of course we were weary, and it was a great luxury to be swept to the hotel in a very flash Toyota limo. Hyatt very good. Room on first Japanese second floor, so a good view of the roof below, but it was […]

This is a great time to go.

Dear Ryoko,I have just returned from an exciting and blissfully indulgent holiday in Japan. I was overwhelmed by its beauty, its cultural richness, its varied, delicious and healthy cuisine, by the remarkable efficiency with which everything ran, and by the exceptional level of service and the generous hospitality of the Japanese people. Japan is extremely safe, with the only damage from the earthquake (for which the […]

Onsen Experience

Hi Clem Well, I’m back!! Japan was fantastic!! All the accommodation was great. Good to be back to a soft bed now though, that’s for sure. They were all in really good locations – even the Tokyu Hotel in Kyoto was only a 10 min walk from the station so we only caught a taxi once when we arrived. Takayama Ryokan was amazing. Hubby loved it, […]
