Amazing experience ”

- Great environment- It is a very clean, tidy and quite place surrounded by bamboo and trees. A great place to relax yourself. If you walk out from here, there are more onsen hotel. You can wear Yukata to walk around and see sakura along the way. - Great services- the services from front desk staff and the waiters are excellent. They are very helpful and professional. They tried their best to introduce us the courses and facilaties. They greet us sincerely and passionately. Will definitely come back again :)

I will consider this a value for money for the facilities and the services it provide at the ryokan. Dinner experience is amazing, both the food and staff. Onsen is not crowded(weekday), able to enjoy the peaceful atmosphere early in the morning all alone. Definitely will recommend peers to stay at ryokan for a authentic experience of Japanese style accomodation.

It's just the 1st Ryokan at the first entrance of Kurokawa Onsen. The Ryokan also provide free shuttle services for their customers who arriving by bus. Just tell them the arrival or departure time so they can arrange the transport. Will visit here in future if I come to Kurokawa Onsen again.

Awesome experience”

Good service and awesome food! However, location may be alittle difficult to find and the options for onsen is limited - only one outdoor and one indoor bath. That said, the complimentary 50min private bath was a bonus! Not to mention that the location was close (within walking distance) to nearby shops. Big thanks to the staff who made the experience great for us and also for doing a good job in deodorising the room (as the onsen does not have non-smoking room)

Wonderful stay”

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Ryokan Wakaba. The room was beautiful and we loved being able to soak in our own private bath that looked out over the river behind. We couldn't hear anything from the other rooms, and it was so tranquil that we wish we could've stayed for longer than one night. The dinner and breakfast were also delicious and we enjoyed the variety of food on offer (although there was so much we weren't able to finish it all!). The rest of the village was a 2 minute walk down the hill and a lovely little place to explore. We'd definitely love to return in the future.
