    Excellent staff, Luxury private Onsen, Dinner is tasty and a lot. We have visited many place; Fukuoka, Kurokawa, Yufuin, Beppu, and stay over night in each city and my mom love to stay here the most.

    Just mention that this ryokan is not located in Kurokawa city around 5 mins by car. However the hotel prepares free shuttle bus to Kurokawa city and need to book before.

    The dinner was very delicious and the private onsen is my favourite - it is a actually better than the other onsens I tried out on the onsen street. Staff are very helpful and lovely. Look forward to staying at this place again!

    It is not located in the main onsen street area. However they provide shuttle service to the bus station.

    The staff was very friendly, the place cosy and clean, the food delicious. The onsens were just amazing with a river flowing just underneath. We have not found nicer rotemburo onsens in the whole of Kurokawa Onsen. Fabulous place!

    friendly and helpful staff, superb food (completely different dinners on each of the three nights I stayed), intimate atmosphere and beautiful surroundings for the baths next to the river. Much nicer situation than the other ryokans in the middle of Kuorkawa. When I said I was leaving early in the morning and missing breakfast, the staff made up a bento box for me to take along.

    smoking area should be insulated- there was a smell of stale smoke right through the ryokan; wi-fi in the rooms would be useful and easy to install.

    We had such a lovely stay at Ryukeien and even though it was a splurge for us, we were so glad we decided to stay at this ryokan: the staff were incredibly kind and helpful, the private onsen were amazing, and the multi-course dinner was the best meal we had while travelling around Japan. They are located a little ways out from Kurokawa Onsen Town but we were thankfully shuttled around when we wanted to visit a nearby onsen and to return to Kurokawa proper. We would absolutely recommend Ryukeien to anyone looking to enjoy an authentic Japanese ryokan in an onsen town that is preferred over the more popular (and heavily-visited) Yufuin and Beppu.

    Superb food, lovely setting, very friendly and helpful staff

    - no internet connection in rooms - smoking area not screened off, so there was a smell of smoke throughout the ryokan

    The staff were very helpful regarding our trip questions. The food was great. We like the three hot springs. Although it locates a little bit far from main street, they provide free pick up n drop off service to the bus station.

    This place was amazing! They met us at the bus stop and stored our luggage while we checked out other onsens. The dinner was fabulous and beautiful. The staff was really kind and helpful. Their English was very good. I highly recommend this place.
