    What a treat to stay here! Some staff spoke English and those that didn’t were very patient with us (we don’t speak any Japanese). The private bath was spacious and the main bath had a lovely outdoor area that we both enjoyed. Dinner and breakfast were outstanding. We wish we had stayed two nights instead of just one. We highly recommend.

    My "onsen village" experience, deep into Kyushu

    Wakaba Ryokan is located on the edge of very quaint village with numerous onsen concentrated in one area, where the peaceful sound of the river and steam rising up all around you. The Japanese breakfast was very good. Having been to Japan 14 times, I can say Wakaba Ryokan is reasonably priced and has exceptional service provided by a very warm staff, with several of them being able to communicate clearly, in English.

    Lovely onsen ryokan - highly recommend

    Absolutely worth the stay! Great hospitality, clean & tidy, delicious breakfast & dinner. There is a shared hot spring at the ryokan, and also 2 private hot tubs which you can reserve for free. My room is 102 Yuri with a private hot tub. The room is very spacious and clean. The staff would prepare the futon beds for you while you have dinner, and put them away in the morning when you have breakfast. Most staff speak very good English and one lady who speaks Mandarin is very diligent and helpful. The only one thing I would suggest is the staff may acquire more knowledge of Mt. Aso tourist information, as I was told by a staff that the crater area was closed for the day, but later I found it's closed on and off during the day depending on the changing levels of poisonous gas, so I decided to go there and managed to visit the crater areas twice (during my 1st visit there's an alarm to ask you to evacuate immediately but some time later it opened again). So for tourists who are flexible with their itinerary and especially those who are driving, you can check the Mt. Aso status online from time to time to decide if you should go there.
