This famous, charming ryokan is located at the very heart of the town. It is located just alongside the Kurokawa river, and the bridge to access the hotel is a touristic spot itself. We only used their bath facilities and enjoyed a lot. Although very rustic, it's a unique place. The baths are partially gender-separated. There is a women's bath... More

Kurosawa Onsen has been one of the destinations where loads of Japanese people adore to stay over nights but it is known to be expensive and inaccessible. We decided finally to give it a go and chose Shinmeikan: for its amazing historical establishment and reputable Onsen areas. From arrival to departure, we could not fault them a thing. We already...

Unlike Yufu and Beppu, everything is more concentrated so there is a great onsen town atmosphere. The streets are tiny but pretty. People walking on the street in their yukata. I enjoyed Shinmeikan very much. The building fits... More

At first sight it was as pretty as one could imagine, period building sited alongside the river and connected by a bridge walkway to the access road in the heart of town. Then the disappointment, we were assigned a room in the annex across from the main building; a non-descript modern building blocked by another building. The room was ok... More
