Asozuru Onsen Kame no Yu

2053-53 Nishizato, Oguni-machi, Aso-gun, Kumamoto 麻生釣温泉 亀山の湯


A lodge with private baths that accepts day trip visitors 24 hours a day

Asozuru Onsen is situated on the border of Oita and Kumamoto Prefectures. It is accessible 20 minutes by car from the Oita Expressway Kokonoe IC, or 20 minutes by taxi from the JR Bungo-Nakamura Station.

This onsen lodge specializes in private baths, and features 13 separate cottages in its vast premises. Since each cottage is detached from the others, you can relax without worrying about noise coming from neighboring rooms.

All the cottages are equipped with a free-flowing semi-open air onsen bath. The baths come in a variety of constructions, including cypress wood baths, cut stone baths, rock baths, and a wooden barrel bath.

The onsen is a slightly alkaline simple spring with a pH of 8.1. It is rich in metasilicic acid, a natural moisturizer. You will feel your skin become smooth after a bath.

Day trip visitors can use the baths through a coin-operated timer that drains and refills the tubs with every use. They are available 24 hours a day, so you can visit even late at night or early in the morning.

Five of the cottages are for overnight stays. They are equipped with a refrigerator and microwave oven so you can bring your own food. Their attached onsen baths can be used by pushing a button. You can bathe as much as you want anytime you want during your stay.

The place also has a “Jigoku Mushi” kitchen that uses steam from the hot springs to cook food. You can bring your own food to easily make and enjoy the steamed cuisine famous in the region. Don’t forget to bring your own cutlery and seasonings, and make sure to take all your garbage with you.

The lodge’s fees are quite reasonable, making it a convenient place to refresh yourself and relieve your fatigue in a private atmosphere.
