Ryokan Adumaya, Yunomine Onsen

Kumano Kodo | Ryokan

The Ryoken Adumaya is a charming onsen hostel with a rich history where you can enjoy the ancient traditions and customs of hot-spring bathing. The combination of the near-mystical Yunomine Onsen (one of the oldest spas in Japan), the stunning scenery and the trails through the surrounding forest makes it easy to understand why pilgrims have been visiting this site for over 1000 years. This simple ryokan is a relaxing base for hikers wanting to practise some proper self-care and ease both mind and body.

In keeping with the authentic style, the rooms are furnished with soft tatami flooring, translucent shoji screens and low chabudai tables. Neutral colours and wooden fixtures reinforce the connection with nature, and the rooms are flooded with natural light from the wide windows. The space feels minimalist and clear, perfect for calming your mind in keeping with the ryokan’s spiritual roots, and there is a sense of connecting with the seasonal changes in the landscape outside. Yukata kimono-style garments are issued to each guest so you can fully embrace the ryokan lifestyle.

There are several onsen pools within the hotel including an open-air hot spring, a large family bath, and a Samashi bath where the warmer, mineral-rich waters are said to have healing properties. The spring water is also used to prepare the food in the ryokan, which is served in traditional kaiseki style. Enjoy feasts of delicate dishes including soups, fish, rice and vegetables, as well as the occasional cake and coffee treat, which will set you up for a full day’s hiking or be the perfect accompaniment to a few hours relaxing in the warm onsen water.

We Say
A traditional Japanese onsen experience where you can take a reviving break from the trail.
