It feels like home. More like a guest house / B&B than a hotel.”
Our family stayed 1 night there just few days ago. The price is at the best value compare with other hotels for a large room of 5 people (4 adults + 1 kid). The owner Kaz is the soul of this place - kind, polite and punctual. You can see his efforts and love to this place. If you are looking for a homey, local Japanese stay in Yufuin, this is what you should look for. One thing to be mentioned is the shared bathroom with low hot water pressure. But it is totally acceptable for just 1 night stay. Location is away from the main street but getting away from busy life is our key purpose to travel in small town (and there is nothing much to see at night in main street). Much appreciated the breakfast, dinner and shuttle pick-up!

it was nice”
it was my first time to stay at Ryokan, so i have no idea other places are better or worse. but staffs were very nice. they picked me up and dropped me off at the station when i want. the room and foods were clean and nice. but if you are looking for very very various and and traditional Japanese dish, it wouldn't satisfy your expectation. i liked it though.

Nice small guesthouse with onsen”
Kaz the host is very nice. The room, the food and the onsen all great. The guesthouse is not located near the town centre, but Kaz offers pick up so it's not a problem at all. Good for travelers who want to be away from all the tourists.

Amazing! Well worth it!”
We absolutely loved it here! Only stayed one night but we were picked up from the station and enjoyed the onsen ourselves prior to dinner. The dinner was also very delicious and worth splurging on. The room is just like the pictures - very beautiful! It definitely feels like you're in the middle of no where -very peaceful. Although it was more expensive than my other stays, it was also the most memorable. Would stay here again!

It is the most precious and secret place for me.”
Facilities, staff, and service are the most perfect places in Japan. If you are looking for a very japanese style ryokan, you should go there. They have free pick up service, and hospitality

Feel Japan with Secret base”
I spent nice holiday because of this place. Everything is good especially the food provided was almost perfact to feel Japen. Moreover, the best thing was nice people there. They were not only really kind but also tried to break the ice when we were arrived. It is located in quite far away from the station. But for I, I rent a car from the airport, so It was not a big deal. It was the first time to take a rest in Onsen. It should be experienced before you died. That's really awesome. I super specially recommended. Hace a nice trip guys. !!

Our Best Stay in Japan”
We loved Secret Base Tokinokakera very much. It was a little haven nicely created by the Tokinokakera team. The food was fantastic, the onsens were nice (there were outdoor and indoor options), the yukatas were so pretty and the room was nicely decorated. We really enjoyed our stay there. We would like to do a shout out to Tomo san who kindly fetched us to and fro the Yufu Station. And he also kindly drove all the way back returned us my hubby's sweater & pant. Super cool chap! Anyway, we highly recommend Secret Base and hope it will also leave good memories like it did for us. :)

expensive but nice”
The breakfast and dinner were outstandingly delicious with lots of fresh vegetables and a variety of food. However, it was disappointing that they only had one option for the meals. As we had a toddler we decided to eat there two nights and had to have the same meal twice... The owner offers free transfers to and from the heart of town each day which was really appreciated (otherwise, you'd need to get a taxi and that would significantly add up to extra costs). The family bath was amazing and beautiful but it would have been better if you could see outside more instead of the ugly roof... Our room was massive and clean. I'm not sure it was really worth the exuberant price though... I was expecting it to be more hidden up in the mountains.

Great chance to experience Japanese culture”
We had stayed for a night and as soon as we arrived we truly loved this place. It's quiet, beautiful and cosy. We also loved the animals there especially three beautiful cats. The place is about 10 min ride from Yufuin station. The staff offered free rides for us for our arrival and departure which was helpful. The onsen, breakfast and dinner were all wonderful. If we have the chance to come back this would be the place we wanna stay again. Big thanks to the staff as well!
