At the foot of Mt. Yufudake, on a plot of land of about 10,000 tsubos that leads to Lake Kinrin, there is an inn called “Kamenoi Besso” where you can enjoy a hot spring bath with its source unspilled.
Since its establishment in 1921, the inn has welcomed many guests while carefully preserving the elegance and tranquility of its garden.
In this article, I will introduce in detail the charm, location, features of the rooms, and cuisine of Kamenoi VILLA, a dignified inn standing on a vast site in Oita Prefecture.
Location of Kamenoi Villa
Kamenoi VILLA is located in Yufuin, Oita Prefecture.
When you think of Yufuin, you probably think of hot springs, but Yufuin is more than just hot springs.
This small town, located in the center of Oita Prefecture, has long been called “the Karuizawa of the east and the Yufuin of the west,” and is a place where you can enjoy the beautiful cityscape and nature.
The best seasons to visit Yufuin are spring and autumn, when you can enjoy cherry blossoms, autumn leaves, and other trees that remind you of the seasons.
There are many places to visit when visiting Yufuin, such as “Michi no Eki Yufuin” (Roadside Station), where you can buy local foods and crafts, “Kobo Wahyoha”, which sells handmade beckoning cats, which became popular after it was featured in the media, and “Utsukomiya”, which is also called “Rokusho-gu”, a shrine dedicated to the six pillars of the Goddess of Mercy. In addition to souvenir shops, there are also many unique stores such as cafes and art galleries along the Yunotsubo Highway.
Kamenoi Besso is an inn with a great location, perfect for seeing all these sights.
Attractions of Kamenoi Cottage
Since its establishment in 1921, the Kamenoi Inn has been carefully maintaining the elegance and tranquility of its garden, and the garden surrounded by greenery of trees over 200 years old, and the guest rooms, all of which are differently designed, give a sense of nostalgia and comfort.
You can feel the change of the seasons up close, and spend your time as you wish with dishes made from local ingredients and the smooth hot spring water from the source.
The hot spring at Kamenoi Besso is also a great place to enjoy the natural hot water from the source in the garden all night long.
This natural, free-flowing hot spring water from the source in the garden overflows into all the baths in the main bath and guest rooms, making it a must for hot spring lovers.
In the bathhouse in the garden, you can enjoy the scent of the plants and trees, the starry sky, and the slow flow of time.

All the rooms are spacious and restful, where you can spend time in the quiet garden and feel the seasonal atmosphere up close.
All the rooms have a different flavor, so you will feel fresh and new no matter how many times you visit.
