We visited both this onsen and the nearby Hirauchi Kaichu Onsen. I preferred Hirauchi as we visited as a couple and could go in together (Yudomari has 2 sections separated by a bamboo wall). Although a local told us that we potentially could enter the...More

We were there 10 years ago and I still remembered the place. So, during our trip in 2018 we decided to go there again. No change at all - this place is fabulous. We spent an evening there with heavy rain and another one with...More

Yudomari and Hirauchi Kaichu are two popular seaside outdoor onsen in Yakushima. Unlike Hirauchi, Yudomari is available for 24 hours. There are men's bath and women's bath. And there's one more walking along the wall. This one is closer to the coast. The temperature isn's...More

This onsen is fantastic, Extremely cheap (when we went it was 100 Yen) and not at all fancy, you arrive, make your way down a small outside path, put your clothes wherever seems out of the way, and fumble your way into the onsen. Despite...More

An onsen like it should be - next to the sea, with waves splashing into the lower bassins. Crabs running around :) In the evening also a gathering point for young & old islanders.

Rating: 4-1/2 stars Yudomari Onsen comes in a close second behind nearby Hirauchi Kaichu in the Battle of Yakushima's Oceanside Onsen. The pool near the parking lot was unexciting, as others have rightly noted. Far more appealing was the bath a little farther down the...More

Both evenings we spent on Yakushima we spent at this onsen, and both were epic. Amazing spot to experience the sunset. The separate men's and women's pool near the parking lot, holds little appeal (more people, young kids, noise). Walk past to the pool farther...More

Yudomari onsen is located in the very south of Yakushima. There is a rockpool onsen bath which is divided by a plank to separate women and men. But keep walking pass this onsen and you will soon come to another onsen pool further out towards...More
