Satonoyu Ryokan

A small hot spring hotel where you can contact with Japanese culture.

Nagayu Onsen is about an hour’s drive from Oita city and located at the foot of Kujyurenzan. This quiet hot-spring area surrounded by rich nature has a hundred-year-old history. On the top of the river which Nagayu Onsen flows, there is a “Satonoyu Ryokan”.

The head water of Oita River is running through the broad area of the hotel, and it is the place of scenic beauty in all season. If you strain your ears, you can hear the sounds of birds and insects and the music of the trees. This hot spring has kept preserving the gushing hot water by “not boiling, not adding water, not circulating”. You can feel the joy of sitting in hot water as blessing of nature.

Through the bath with free-flowing hot spring water, Japanese-style house, meals and rich nature, the experience of staying here will attract you. At this hotel, you can contact with Japanese nature.

A rain water of Mt. Kujyu, known as the roof of Kyushu, has dissolved a lot of mineral into the spring source we use, and we run the hot water which gushes out to the surface for a bath, by “not boiling, not adding water, not circulating”.

The bathtub is completely covered by precipitates and hardly in its original shape. The holly green free-flowing hot water is used at the bath of our hotel. When you get into a bath, carbonaceous precipitates which are deposited at the bottom of the bathtub stir up and make hot water cloudy at once. The mineral-rich hot water is very soft and fresh. Please enjoy the real hot spring.
