癒しの宿彩葉 (Iyashi no Yado Iroha)
|Open:||10:00 till 16:00|
Iyashi no Yado Iroha is a nice ryokan in Kannawa. It became part of Beppu Onsendō this year. Looking at the buildings, I think this ryokan is quite new. They recycled a lot of the wood of a mansion that belonged to the great grandfather of former prime minister Aso Taro.
Guests stay in a kind of private cottage and it seems that you get sushi for dinner here. Everything looks really nice. I wouldn't mind staying here a night, or two. The onsen was nice too. The men's bath and women's bath are identical. There is an indoor bath and a rotenburo. I stayed indoor mostly, because it was raining hard.
Beyond the entrance gate is a nice garden
They're not really cottages, but the guests stay in these buildings
This is the rotenburo of the women's bath

It was strange weather that day. It rained on and off.
