Where to stay in Kirishima

Most tourists and visitors in Kirishima opt to stay in one of the hot spring onsens that dot the foothills of the Kirishima Mountains. You can find several basic inns and hotels in the city center as well, but most of the accommodation options lie in the surrounding villages, where they provide easy access to the hot springs and the national park. The hotels and traditional ryokans, or Japanese-style guesthouses, usually include private bathhouses, pools, and saunas.
