The experience was very interesting, we would never be able to do something like that by our selves, and learning about the Onsens therapy with Kenny and Yayoi was amazing! Yayoi thanks a lot for sharing all your knowledge and mores with us! All my family had a great time, I strongly recommend it!

Couldn't recommend this experience more! Myself and my partner went together and both really enjoyed it. I was a bit nervous about the nude bathing style but the guide Kenny gave us so much info before hand that once I entered the woman only area I felt very comfortable. It was a great tour and we're both delighted we did it! Had we not done the tour and just gone to the bathing areas we wouldn't not have known about the correct etiquette and could have potentially offended people. We also got to learn about local history and culture which to me is invaluable. Highly recommend!

I had the utmost privilege of a private tour with Kenny. It was my first experience with Onsen and he made me feel very relaxed and prepared. As noted, everything needed for the experience was provided (towels, water, etc). Kenny is very knowledgeable of the Kannawa area and shared information and stories that I found very interesting while we walked through town. He appreciated and answered all of my questions. And steam cooking a meal at the end is the best way to end the tour! Kenny is a wonderful and gracious guide - this experience is a must-do to learn the historical, spiritual, and cultural aspects of Onsen/ Toji!

유명한 온천들이 아닌 마을 곳곳에 있는 온천들을 알게되어 좋은 트립이였습니다. 케니가 소개시켜주는 숨겨진 그림같은 풍경들도 볼 수 있어요. 이 트립 한번 하고 나면 다음 벳푸 여행의 가이드는 스스로 할 수 있습니다.

I had such a wonderful time being showed around Kannawa by Kenny! I’ve never done any onsen tours before, but I really loved being able to see and learn about onsen in a low key setting. Kenny also went ahead and explained a bit of history on Beppu and types of onsen and their importance. I definitely have a much bigger appreciation for onsen and and can say my experience with them from here on out will be great. It was also pretty awesome to use a steam oven to cook our food for lunch at his local friend’s home. Kenny’s attention to detail and consideration are terrific. I enjoyed every minute of the trip.

Highly recommended. Superb experience. Great value. Worth the money. Would do it again because there’s so much to learn. We had a fantastic experience with Kenny. We learned a lot, had a relaxing day, ate an incredible meal, and made friends! It was an all-inclusive tour. He brought us a basket with everything we needed—a wash towel, a drying off towel, soap, mineral water to stay hydrated, a mini chocolate, and even coins for the lockers! He thought of everything all we had to do is show up. The entire experience was well-planned and Kenny’s attention to detail was impeccable. If you’re going to spend time in public baths with someone it makes sense to know what to expect and get to know each other a little first and that’s exactly what happened. We first stopped at a performing arts space/cafe where Kenny gave us an overview of the tour and asked us about our expectations, he also treated us to tea and snacks. The tour focused on one of the eight hot spring areas in Beppu called Kannawa. We learned a lot about the area and the history and rituals of doing local hot spring baths (not the baths in hotels and resorts). As we toured the town and made our way to different onsens, Kenny pointed out and provided details about numerous onsens in the area that we could visit later on our own. One of the highlights of the tour was the delicious and very fresh lunch cooked with the steam of hot springs. We also got to meet the friendly local shopkeeper who prepared our meal. The tour packs in a lot but doesn’t over do it. We saw a bit of the town, learned from a certified onsen expert, had a healthy fresh meal, and got great advice for the rest of our visit. Not only did we have a great time, we also made new friends.
