What Is Yamadaya?

Yamadaya is a Japanese inn with fine Japanese dining.

It is located about 10 minutes walk away from Yufuin Station. We are best known for our original seasonal dishes, which are carefully prepared by our owner, who has years of training and experience as a professional chef. In particular, our chef’s carefully handpicked meat and Ōita prefecture super-fresh fish are delicacies you won’t find anywhere else.



At Yamadaya you can enjoy lavish, colorful original kaiseki ryōri (traditional Japanese meal brought in courses) made with abundant seasonal foods and impeccable skill right in your room (or the dining hall if you prefer). We have eight hot springs (two inside, four outside, and two family baths) and rooms with indoor and outdoor baths, giving our guests ample opportunity to sample and enjoy our springs.

Rooms

All of our rooms are traditional Japanese tatami-style.
We have many different types of rooms, each with their own location and architecture. Some guest rooms have their own hot springs, others enjoy a serene view of the trees in our garden and nearby Mount Yufu, and some are simple standard rooms. However you like to travel, we’ll be sure to find a room that fits your style. Every room has both a distinctly Japanese charm and Wi-Fi.

Hot Springs

We have three types of hot springs

male and female communal springs, outdoor garden baths, and family baths that can be reserved for private use. Guests are free to take advantage of all of these. Our family baths can be used for any time of day or night, and can be locked from the inside to ensure a safe and private bathing environment. Whether you prefer to enjoy the view of Mount Yufu or our garden, we are certain you will find many situations with which to enjoy our springs.



Our springs are alkalescent simple hot springs. They have plenty of hot water, so we maintain the springs’ heat and freshness by using the hot water flowing directly from the hot spring source. With the springs’ gentle, soothing properties, your skin will become smoother, your body will be warmed to its core, and your circulation will be improved. Our springs can even help you scrub off excess keratin from your skin, which has made them a big hit with our female customers.
