Probably the ryokan with the most beautiful onsen in the whole of Kurokawa (easily top 10 in the whole of Japan)! The male only onsen is located just next to the stream. For the ladies, it will be a 1 min walking naked from the indoor onsen to the beautiful outdoor onsen. Dinner and breakfast are amazingly high quality. Our... More

This onsen ryokan excels in trying define the meaning of Japanese hospitality. Distanced away from the Kurokawa onsen town proper. Yet, it makes up for it by being away from large tour groups, excellent in-house onsen, and hospitality second to none. Recommend this hideaway onsen resort that mains to please in any manner. The rooms were large and well furnished.... More

Yamamizuki is a good place to relax. she provided the best service and meals to guests. All staffs are very nice. Especially one of the staffs Miss Chan is so friendly that we felt comfortable very much. The onsen is very very good and the food is fresh and yummy. However, she is the best!!

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

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
