The woodland setting of Ryokan Sanga envelopes and relaxes you gently. The traditional hearth on the estate, which releases into the air the scent of burning wood, is a lovely touch that adds to the rusticity, especially as you use the outdoor baths. The rooms are elegantly appointed with well thought-out views onto the lush landscape. The sounds of the... More

We spent 2 nights here in January and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The staff are extremely friendly and accommodating. As we stayed during winter, we arrived to an already heated room and our futons were so comfortable making for a top nights sleep. I highly recommend booking a room with a private hot spring, ours was a private outdoor hot... More

Truly enjoyable experience. Traditional ryokan in secluded forest area near Kurokawa onsen village. Attentive and friendly staff took care of everything from very first moment of pick up at the bus stop. Nicely maintained baths with several choices. Excellent 10 course kaiseki dinner and generous Japanese style breakfast. Room had all I needed. Definitely recommend this place.

We stayed three nights at this superb ryokan, which although quite remote and taking some effort to get to, was well worth the trouble to do so. Sanga is a located by itself a little out of the town of Kurokawa Onsen, while other onsen in the town are quite crowded together. A shuttle service to the town is provided... More

Hands down the best hotel I have ever stayed at - and I've stayed at quite a few. Nestled away in the mountains surrounded nature. Staff were kind, food very tasty.?Rooms are huge and with expensive decor and furnishings. Onsens are phenomenal. Great place to unwind. Cannot recommend It enough! I would recommend Ho-No-Ki room as you get a walk... More

The ryokan is located at the very end of Kurokawa onsen area, so it's quite calm. To access to the town you might need a car. All staffs are great, always willing to help. Dinner course is delicious, they also serve horse meat (raw). It taste good but if you dont like just inform them in advance. Beware if you... More

Our stay at Ryokan Sanga was definitely the highlight of our whole trip in Kyushu. Its merits are as follows: 1. The ryokan took our remarks very seriously. The shuttle'd been already been waiting even before our bus arrived; they took and printed a very nice photo for us as a honeymoon gift. 2. The staff members there were all... More

We arrived at Fukuoka International airport and took the Kurokawa Onsen bus at the domestic airport (shuttle between terminals available). Sanga's driver was waiting at the bus stop upon our arrival. The staff are very helpful and efficient even though they speak little English. The food was very good and none of the items was repeated for the 4 meals... More

We have stayed in several Ryokans in Japan & this one tops the lot! After a scenic bus ride into the moutians from Fukuoka Airport we were greeted by Sangas courtesy bus at the bus stop in Kurokawa. The driver dropped us off in the centre of town & minded our bags until check in at 3pm. The town is... More
