Located in the centre of Kurokawa Onsen, Oyado Noshiyu offers outdoor and indoor hot-spring baths, Japanese-style accommodations and a traditional teahouse. I loved everything. I was 3 months pregnant during my visit, so I requested to have meals without the raw ingredients. I didn't expect them to comply due to the difficult request, and I didn't double check with them when I checked in, but they followed through with my request and the meals we had there were amazing! The bath was great. I loved how the baths are all scattered in a moss garden, so we could take a walk to the onsens while enjoying the garden and the ryokan complex is very lovely. The room is very spacious and their service and explanation is very thorough. We really enjoyed our stay!
Boasting spacious indoor and outdoor hot spring baths surrounded by lush greenery, Ryokan Wakaba provides Japanese-style accommodation in the peaceful mountain area. Amazing experience. This Ryokan's staff is extremely nice and helpful. They even gave us lifts whenever we needed them. The food is excellent, our best 'kaiseki dinner'! They have private bath you can book very easily and that's lovely. They have 2 outdoor baths too. The room was big, nicely decorated and extremely clean with the sound of the river next to us.
Situated among tranquil Japanese gardens, Ryokan Sanga boasts spacious open-air hot spring baths and classic Japanese-style guest rooms with a relaxing ambience. I don’t know if its peak season during our visit but we had a hard time going to the place (all buses are fully booked - suggest to advance your bus booking) but thanks to the excellent customer service of the japanese people, we were able to experience the beauty of this area. The food, ambience and the people here are superb. We even have our own private onsen in our room. Its really a total package of relaxation. We will definitely go back! :)
Located in Minamioguni, 100 metres from Kurokawa Onsen, inn NOSHIYU features accommodation with free WiFi, a garden with a terrace, and access to a hot tub. The staff here were completely understanding and exceptional. I arrived before check in, and they allowed me to store my luggage, and did so again between my check out time and departure time. I was given a ride from the bus stop to the hotel, and then back when I was returning.
Situated along Tanohara River and surrounded by tranquil nature in Kurokawa Onsen hot spring area, Oku no Yu Ryokan offers charming Japanese-style accommodation and various hot spring baths. Very nice outdoor onsen with water fall view. Staff very friendly. Delicious meals too.
Set in Minamioguni, Kumamoto region, Ryokan Yamanoyu is situated 500 metres from Kurokawa Onsen. This 3-star ryokan offers room service, luggage storage space and free WiFi. The traditional Japanese food was so great, we love that. The onsen were so beautiful. The staff were kindly and helpful.
Boasting individual Japanese-style houses and maisonettes with a private open-air hot spring bath, Ryokan Kono-Yu is nestled in lush greenery in the peaceful Kurokawa hot spring area. The best experience I've had. Will want to back there again. All their services are very friendly to the family with baby, thanks them so much.
Located in the centre of Kurokawa Onsen area, Senomotokan Yumerindo offers quiet and spacious rooms with tatami (woven-straw) flooring and river views. Guests can enjoy the on-site hot spring bath. We had an amazing room (the biggest in the whole place) and really enjoyed the onsen and surrounds.
If you would like to try really nice ryokan in the place close to nature and in a small town with really traditional vibe (architecture, food) this is the place for you. Good to escape from noises of the big cities, rest form work and forget about problems.
There are many beautiful onsens that you can enjoy all over the town. The atmosphere is really good. Well mix between traditional and modern that makes your stays very enjoyable and comfortable. Really recommend this place for those who love onsen.
The ryokans here all seem to have very high standards of services, and having chinese/english speaking staff onboard. The village centre has some nice pastries and restaurants but do note they do not open for dinner, so book your dinners with the ryokans you are staying with. There are a couple of walking trails to work off some calories which will make the onsen sessions even better to soothe the aches.
A old fashion japanese village with cosy atmosphere and very small roads. There are plenty of Onsen open to public and lots of people walking from one to another waring traditional Yukata, which makes the whole picture even more "Japanese".
I can only recommend a stay at Kurokawa Onsen in Minamioguni. The area is just wonderful, the quality of the ryokans marvelous. Besides, you can reach Mt. Aso in an hour by car, Kumamoto city in 1.5 hours.
Kurakowa Onsen is an amazing place to spend a couple of days. As well as the numerous Onsen and Ryokan, there are also some lovely walks which take up half a day. The one we did was described as the ‘easy’ one but parts were really steep, so wear sensible shoes!
