It is great to be by the river soaking in natural thermal water and in your own hut. It is worth it to pay for it. Don't forget to bring your own towel

We came to Yunomine pronounced as You-know-me-meh mainly because of the UNSECO Onsen bath. Be prepared to wait 1.5 to 2hrs if you want use the bath. We decided against it and cooked some eggs instead. You can buy the eggs, sweet potato or corn from 2 of the nearby shops. Corn takes 40min and sweet potato takes 1 hr to cook. Cooking eggs was the fastest - 20min. You need to rinse the eggs with cold water after cooking it. Overall, it was a nice stroll from our hotel and an interesting experience cooking the eggs.

Hidden away in the mountains like a bit of Japanese history that resisted time, the place is romantic and a bit magical. The odd smelling vapor that comes up the little stream that crosses the village gives the place a mystical aura. Do like the Japanese. Go buy a few eggs at the local market and boil them in the stream water.
We stayed at the Ryokan Adumaya and we loved it. The traditional meals we had there were beyond awesome and the Japanese woman who served them was so nice. Unforgettable.

This is a beautiful little onsen town, full of ryokans and inns for the onsen enthusiast. It's a good place to spend the night if you are walking the Kumano Kodo or going through the sights of the Kii Peninsula.

This hot spring is 1,800 years old and is UNESCO World Heritage listed ; why would you not want to experience this ?! Couples can book it for a few $ for 30 minutes ; the "tub" itself is actually very small (2 people only just fit) and they really could do better in dressing up the surrounding area (covering up the concrete beams and wires), but it is good fun. You get the Tsuboyu Certificate to confirm that you did it !
