Top choice hotel in Unzen

Fukudaya is a hip, stylish onsen hotel mixing Western and Japanese decor. The rooms with private rotemburo are gorgeous, with milky water and decks overlooking a small creek running below. The cafe-lounge in the lobby is a chill hang-out spot, and meals – in small, private rooms – vary between kaiseki and teppan-yaki of local wagyū.

The bar has an expansive, eclectic collection of vinyl.
