Aso Hotel


Welcome to Aso Hotel
Ichibankan and Nibankan!

Aso Hotel is situated at the heart of Aso Uchinomaki Onsen, about one hour’s drive by car from the city of Kumamoto. It is an excellent location for strolls and access to leisure spots. A short car drive takes you to such tourist attractions as Daikanbo, Kusasenri, and the Yamanami Highway, where you can experience the dynamic nature of Aso.

Ryokan-style Ichibankan

The hotel-style Nibankan has Western-style rooms as well.

Blending the attractions of a hot-spring ryokan (Japanese-style guesthouse) and modern hotel The Ichibankan offers a ryokan style of accommodation with a basic plan of one night/two meals. The popular outdoor hot-spring baths provide a panoramic view of Aso. The Nibankan offers a hotel style with a basic plan of just overnight stay or overnight stay with breakfast; it has both Japanese-style and Western-style guestrooms. Guests can choose which annex they want to stay in to suit their traveling style.


Soak in hot-spring water drawn directly from the source The special characteristic of the Aso Hotel onsen is that it uses genuine hot-spring water drawn directly from the source, with no other water added, no heating, and no circulation. The outdoor baths atop the Ichibankan offer views of the five peaks of Mount Aso in the daytime and the starry sky at night. Unusual in Kumamoto Prefecture, the Nibankan’s hot-spring water is certified as drinkable. A drink of fresh hot-spring water is said to be good for your health, so by all means try it!


Savor the delights of Kumamoto and Aso The multiple-course meals using seasonal ingredients are popular. Each carefully prepared dish, from the colorful hors d’oeuvre and seasonal sashimi to the main course and dessert, is served with warm hospitality. Why not enjoy a taste of local sake together with your meal? Other recommendations include Aso’s special Akaushi beef steak and basashi (raw horsemeat), a specialty of Kumamoto.
