I believe lots of travelers have recommended this hotel for its hotspring, cuisine and hospitality. I would like to let those who are interested know that: Even it's a hotel with 300 years history, they hire young staff and the staffs in this hotel speak English. They will introduce every cuisine in English and of course the operation hour/noteworthy details... More

Thank you for the sweetest compliment I ever got. Actually,there is little staff to speak English. However,all of staffs try to speak English in every way possible. Your special comment makes us motivate more and more. I hope you will come back to Japan some day in the near future. We always are looking forward to seeing you. Thanks again.... More

The food is excellent: fresh ingredients prepared thoughtfully, balancing texture, taste and color ; all arranged carefully on different dishes of harmonizing color and shape. The ofuro are very nice, including two private ones which you can lock. You really don't need to go "ofuro-hopping" to use other ryokans' ofuros. We opted for taking a 3 hour hike in the... More

When we arrived we were informed that they upgraded us, and the rooms we got were fantastic - one was about double the size of the original booking, the other one, next to... More

Dear MarshalN Thank you for your wonderful recommendation! we are very sorry because there are not well-English speaking staff, however we are very happy to know you had a nice time at Kurokawa Onsen.
