This was our 2nd Onsen in the trip, to this town thats nothing about onsen. Apparently, people come here to do onset-hopping, quite literally, There is a small 'town center' with an information center. Opposite this information center is what I was told a very good tou-fu place, but unfortunately, our things there, twice, did not favor us to sample...

We were checked into the new annex wing with western beds which was very nice after sleeping on the Japanese beds for a few nights. Our room came with an outdoor bath and onsen area with a view of the river. However, there is no indoor shower. The room was huge with separate living and sleeping area. It was beautiful....

Huge number of indoor and outdoor pools available. Choice of tatami or normal western beds, do book correctly ! Fantastic fresh produce, breakfast is good! Tip: We found it easier to navigate to the hotel using GPS as Google Maps wasn't spot on, it was about 100m short.

This is a really charming ryokan in a very wonderful setting. When we stayed here we were the only guests on the first night. There were a couple more on the second night. The manager told us that lots of foreign guests had cancelled because of the Kumamoto earthquake. It is a shame since there was no impact at all...

This review is based on my two visits of Kurokawa and this specific onsen. It's very hard to explain how amazing are both! Kurokawa is a small village in the middle of the mountains, full of onsen and extremely green and calm. The Okonoyu onsen is probably one of the best in town. It's little be up further from the...

Kurokawa is a tiny town inside mountain. It's quite unique because the whole town is full of onsen and ryokans. We are lucky to go there during winter when they decorate the canal in the middle of the town with lanterns. At night, it's magical to see the lanterns lit up along the canal. Okunoyu is very beautiful and nicely...

After a 2-1/2 hour drive from Fukuoka, we arrived at the besutiful village of Kurokawa. We were greeted by a team of helpful people from Kurokawa Onsen. Checking into our room was easy and we were impressed with the hotel and rooms. Walk through the village was pleasant with many surprises - a small stream that explains how the village...

This is one of the best onsen ryokan I ever stayed. The environment (in November) is blossomed with the magnificent autumn colours. The ryokan has a transfer service to pick up & drop off guests at the Kurokawa bus station. It is really worth the 3-hour bus journey from Hakata Bus Terminal. Okunoyu has several indoor & outdoor onsen for...

My husband and I stayed in the special western room with a private onsen on the patio. This was a tranquil, memorable and relaxing experience. The ryokan staff was courteous, friendly and spoke enough English for us to communicate fine. We loved our meals here, we stayed here a total of two nights and none of the meals repeated. Even...

A bit isolated from the main village but love the mountain and quiet location. Our room was nextby the water stream and we can hear the nice water sound throughout the stay. We have a small private onsen bath with excellent view of the river and the trees. We went on a rainy and windy day. Several public onsen to...
