We walked part of the Kumano Kodo trail up the mountain from Yunomine Onsen resulting in a great view on the mountains. We had a nice kochi and kocha and bought eggs to cook in the hot spring (there is a separate ''cooking'' bath, where people cook eggs or edamame).

A must when you are in kumano area. There are two kumano kodo starting from here. One to kumano Hongu and the other one to Funatama-jinja 船玉神社. The onsen here is cute and famous. A popular place for Japanese tourists. There are 3 restaurants serving delicious food and coffee made of water from the spring.

Cute little thermal village near Hongu. 10minutes bus from Hongu station. Pay attention to check buses as there are not so any running to and fro. Yunomine is mostly Ryokan's and minshukus. There are a couple of restaurants and the stream that runs in the centre is half boiling thermal water and half cold water. It's very nice to sit... More

Nothing beats a soak in hot water after a 2 day hike in the mountains. The beer vending machine was across the street and we were lucky enough to be early into town and had a minimal wait for the private onsen. The water was hot and the beer was cold, the perfect reward after the hike. The town is... More

I lived and travelled in Japan for nearly 2 years and the onsen part of the culture never really won me over - sitting in a public bath naked with a load of other men and not doing anything isn't my ideal travel pastime. But my girlfriend and I came here to walk the Kumano Kodo and figured we'd get... More

We enjoyed the next door "pubic" wash area and hot spring which was diluted with natural spring water. It was still hot (40 C) but the minerals were not as intense. Because it is a public bath for locals, the operators expect visitors to bring their own soap. Aside from running taps of hot and cold water, a change room... More

A very nice place to stop after a long day of hiking. Very peaceful, very small village. Lots of ryokan options, each one with their own onsen.
