Part 2 of my visit to Yuwaku Onsen which was used as a model for Yunosagi Onsen in Hanosaku Iroha. This post mostly contains comparison shots. If you want to see the itasha decorated cars, food and various goods I saw while there check out part 1.

The insides doesn't match at all.
Image from Episode 15 - 20m59s
If you move towards the city center you'll get to this bridge.
Image from Episode 17 - 09m52s
The building to the right of Yuina is covered by lots of trees in real life.
Image from Episode 4 - 02m50s
At the end of the bridge there's a map of the area.
Image from Episode 1 - 22m55s
Ohana and Minko runs past this place in the first OP.
Image from Episode 1 - 22m42s
They started running towards here from further up the street.
Image from Episode 1 - 08m42s
Along this street is also where we first see Ohana in Yunosagi Onsen.
Image from Episode 8 - 04m52s
Another shot along this street.
Image from Episode 2 - 22m51s
And you can also find this store that was shown in the first ED here.
I had one of these Yuzuotome yuzu drinks while sitting on the same bench as Yuina in the previous picture.

Back near the place with the map there's also this fork in the road.
Image from Episode 25 - 07m50s
The right path in the forked road leads to where Kissuiso is in the anime.
Image from Episode 8 - 02m57s
There's no Kissuiso up here in real life. There used to be a hotel called Hakuunro Hotel here, but it went bankrupt in 1999 and was torn down in 2006 and it's been replaced with a park area.
Map of the park area.
Image from Episode 2 - 00m15s
In the roof of the pavilion in the shot of the park area there's some pictures of Hakuunro Hotel. It didn't really look like Kissuiso.
Image from Episode 2 - 02m08s
This shot of the hotel as seen from Lake Gyokusenko is a tiny bit similar though.
Image from Episode 25 - 01m45s
Lake Gyokusenko is also where they perform parts of the Bonbori Festival.
Image from Episode 25 - 01m42s
Lanterns near the lake.
Image from Episode 25 - 18m36s
Parts of the Bonbori Festival is also held near these stairs.
Image from Episode 8 - 04m51s
Reverse shot from the stairs.
Image from Episode 4 - 14m51s
The stairs leads even further up.
Image from Episode 4 - 15m01s
Until you get to Yuwaku Inari Shrine.
Image from Episode 4 - 15m09s
Fox statue at the shrine.
Ema hanging place.
Lots of anime ema and even a Kirby one for some reason. I've marked a path from the park area where Kissuiso was in the anime to the shrine in the map below.
This location was visited on 2016/10/09.
