    Value for money”

    I will consider this a value for money for the facilities and the services it provide at the ryokan. Dinner experience is amazing, both the food and staff. Onsen is not crowded(weekday), able to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere early in the morning all alone. Definitely will recommend peers to stay at ryokan for a authentic experience of Japanese style accomodation.

    Great ryokan stay at Kurokawa area!”

    Nice family-run ryokan with very friendly and attentive staff. The room is quite spacious and the futons are comfy. The indoor and outdoor onsen is good as well. Breakfast is ok. Value for money in comparison to other ryokans in the area.

    Amazing experience ”

    - Great environment- It is a very clean, tidy and quite place surrounded by bamboo and trees. A great place to relax yourself. If you walk out from here, there are more onsen hotel. You can wear Yukata to walk around and see sakura along the way. - Great services- the services from front desk staff and the waiters are excellent. They are very helpful and professional. They tried their best to introduce us the courses and facilaties. They greet us sincerely and passionately. Will definitely come back again :)

    Closest to bus stop”

    If coming from Kumamoto, if you’re not carrying too much luggage, walk toward the service station, turn left and walk down the stairs and Ryokan Wakaba is on the right. It takes you straight to the entrance. If you have too much luggage, go across the street from the gas station. Walk down the road, go through the tunnel and turn right for the entrance to Ryokan Wakaba. If coming from Beppu, walk down hill, turn left and go down the side road, through the tunnel. Ryokan Wakaba is an excellent ryokan. Lots of staff speak a little English so it is very helpful. Great service in a comfortable setting The rotenburo is really nice as it sits right next to a cascading waterfall. Relax to the roaring of the water rushing down or stay inside for a quieter relaxing soak. They serve excellent meals. I had a great stay.
