Excellent choice. Beautiful, cozy and serene environment. ”

Excellent facilities and amenities for guests. More than adequate onsen baths, both in and outdoor, and nice too. Dinner and breakfast serve at the restaurant are delicious. Rooms are comfortable and clean. Staff are friendly, helpful and courteous. Most speak and understand simple English. Other pros are star gazing observatory and the after dinner drinks at the fire hearth hut. Accessability is not so convenient without own transport. Strongly recommended. Will return given the opportunity.

Authentic Japan experience ”

The hotel has kept most of the wooden structures, corridor, sliding doors, tatami, etc. so it feel old (in the good way) and authentic. We had diner and breakfast included. It was AMAZING! Total value for money and true Japan experience. It was a bit long for kids though. Wish we could stay longer!

Excellent Ryokan”

The location might slightly further, but it's a very large ryokan with great hospitality, the staff there welcome us warmly and the Onsen there is simply awesome, however value wise I think it's abit on the high side, but all ryokan in kurokawa Onsen charge a relatively higher price compared to other Onsen which I have been to, but overall is perfect.

The staffs are friendly, helpful and humble. The Ryokan makes you feel the austenitic Japanese tradtiotion. There are three private family onsens, one is open air, for those who are not familiar with the traditional onsen. Ryokan's atmosphere is great, and its location is just 10 minutes away from Kurokawa Spa town. The breakfast and dinner are impressive.

The beef in that 10 course dinner is insanely delicious. That star watching section actually has a freaking huge telescope that i wonder if the owner uses his whole life saving to buy that, they have an expert explaining the astronomy in Japanese (only), and I saw shooting star! The staffs are awesome, I have this malfunction credit card, but they can actually make it work. U can also book a massage section. I got a facial massage at 5000 yen only. That lady was like crafting on my face with extreme seriousness and professionalism. They have 7 onsen baths, 3 of them are private baths and no advanced booking is required.
