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. We loved the many outdoor shared and private Onsen baths, surrounded by nature. The kids loved the swimming pool and the cave onsen. It was lovely to have a women-only time for the big shared onsen. The staff was so friendly and kind. We hope to return one day!
Situated among tranquil Japanese gardens, Ryokan Sanga boasts spacious open-air hot spring baths and classic Japanese-style guest rooms with a relaxing ambience. We had a terrific time at this inn. I loved the old dark wood of the interior. Our room was next to the stream, very peaceful. Our dinner was over the top amazing, and relaxing afterwards in a private bath of natural hot water made for a memorable stay.
Built in 1722, Okyakuya is situated in the historical district of Kurokawa Onsen district. Located only 100 metres from Kurokawa Onsen, Free WiFi is provided and private parking is available on site. - awesome service - transportation from/to bus stop - superb hot springs bathing - love breakfast
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. Staff were very friendly (if a little hard to find at times!) My room was clean and comfortable, with a great view of the autumn leaves from my window. The baths were delightful too! A great location - easy to get to many different onsen. I loved the kettle, fridge and microwave, they were very useful to have!
Boasting spacious indoor and outdoor hot spring baths surrounded by lush greenery, Ryokan Wakaba provides Japanese-style accommodation in the peaceful mountain area. The onsen felt very private and relaxing being up high and overlooking the river. Only a few minute walk from the center of town, but that is also what made the onsen so relaxing. You can hear the river bubbling in the open-air bath. It is not huge, but during the weekdays the onsen is not crowded at all. Dinner and breakfast were also spectacular, I didn't know I would get that much food! Everything was served beautifully, definitely worth the price.
Situated in the centre of the Kurokawa Onsen Area and boasting a total of 8 indoor/outdoor hot spring baths, Nanjoen offers traditional Japanese-style accommodation with tatami (woven-straw) flooring... We loved everything. The staff was super kind and attentive, they speak a rough english still helped themselves with Google translator, communicating was easy enough and they put every effort in it. Futons were comfortable and thicker than other ryokans', the room very warm. Kaiseki dinner was lovely, yukata were very beautiful.
Boasting various indoor and open-air hot spring baths, Fumoto Ryokan offers traditional Japanese-style accommodation with a historic charm. It is surrounded by serene greenery next to a river. I don’t have enough words to describe the experience in this hotel! It was the best place I’ve ever stayed in during my trips to Japan. The staff was amazing and helpful, the room was great, outdoors onsen just beautiful and the food ( both breakfast and dinner) was delicious! I definitely hope to stay in this place again!
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!
