Kurokawa onsen was a bit of drive from Beppu so we got there in the late afternoon. The ryokan was thoughtful enough to reserve a carspot for us and carried our luggage up to our room. We chose a traditional Japanese room complete with futon, sliding paper doors and traditional decorative ornaments. What we did not expect was that there... More

We are a family of 3 staying for one night at Yamamizuki. It was a very pleasant stay with helpful staff, delicious food and best onsen. My 3 year old son loves the bath so much and we could make the most of our short time here enjoying the outdoor bath. It was raining in the morning before we checked... More

We made the booking for an A-type room via email and liaised with Amy Lee. She speaks English and was quite prompt and helpful with our booking. We informed her of our arrival time as we were taking the bus from Fukuoka. The ryokan is about a three hour bus ride (9.20am to 12.05pm) and we were dropped off at... More

This onsen ryokan is located about a three hour bus ride from Fukuoka city. The bus drops you off at a bus station along the main road adjacent to Kurokawa Onsen town whereby a driver from the ryokan will be there to greet you and take you to the ryokan located about 1.5 km away. You have to arrange your... More

I'm travelling with my dad. Yamamizuki has a very deep impression in my heart. Everything is done to perfection, even to the small details. I recommend booking rooms with private bath. The bath is overlooking the forest, separated from the room by a small garden. Outside hotspring is very beautiful, the view to the small stream and sound of the... More

However, the room is a bit worn out, not well kept ; in room onsen water is only warm (maybe well below 40deg C) & also... More

We arrived at Yamamizuki in dense mist and rain, that gave the place a mystic atmosphere, like a movie. The fog tangled up in the trees and the little stream trickled down through the valley, enclosing the onsen. The greeting was as excellent as it can be in Japan, and by the sight of the room, and, with an exclusive... More

This was my second stay in Yamamizuki within 4 months. The first time was in January of this year, I was very impressed with everything, so stayed there again in May as wanted to see how this place looks in the Spring when the leaves are plentiful and green as the whole property is surrounded by trees. I particularly enjoyed... More
