After a 2-1/2 hour drive from Fukuoka, we arrived at the besutiful village of Kurokawa. We were greeted by a team of helpful people from Kurokawa Onsen. Checking into our room was easy and we were impressed with the hotel and rooms. Walk through the village was pleasant with many surprises - a small stream that explains how the village... More

This is one of the best onsen ryokan I ever stayed. The environment (in November) is blossomed with the magnificent autumn colours. The ryokan has a transfer service to pick up & drop off guests at the Kurokawa bus station. It is really worth the 3-hour bus journey from Hakata Bus Terminal. Okunoyu has several indoor & outdoor onsen for... More

My husband and I stayed in the special western room with a private onsen on the patio. This was a tranquil, memorable and relaxing experience. The ryokan staff was courteous, friendly and spoke enough English for us to communicate fine. We loved our meals here, we stayed here a total of two nights and none of the meals repeated. Even...

A bit isolated from the main village but love the mountain and quiet location. Our room was nextby the water stream and we can hear the nice water sound throughout the stay. We have a small private onsen bath with excellent view of the river and the trees. We went on a rainy and windy day. Several public onsen to... More

Stayed a couple nights early in early Nov. Taking into account what we paid, this was the experience, in summary: 1) Zombie reception. No greetings on arrival. Didn't speak a word of English (which is fine by me) BUT made no effort to help when we asked about how to get around the area. Bordered on rude when we asked... More

After a few false starts we found the hotel, up a little lane next to a river - isolated and beautiful but only 5 mins from the village. We were met outside reception by the staff - someone parked our car for us, someone else showed us to our room. We were on the first floor of the main block... More

I researched many hotels before finally settling with this choice. It was not a bad choice. But for my family, we preferred something else. The hotel was very traditional, and the nice onsens were "mixed gender". I could not get myself to be brave enough to do that. So I didn't get to experience the beautiful riverside onsens and the...

I stayed here for 2 nights with my family. The service was really nice and touched our heart. The staffs are very sincere and take their job very professionally. Whenever we came back to our room after spa, we could feel that they read the mind of customers and take care of us. There are several hot spring places in... More

This is a lovely traditional ryokan.However, we were disappointed that one person was not designated to serve us. The quality of the sheets and towels especially was very poor. Our own outdoor bath was a treat. Breakfast in a crowded dining room was not fun. Coffee was undrinkable. Staff was very kind and well meaning.The dinners were first rate and... More

The staff was very friendly and the hotel is very beautifully integrated in the nature. I took the greenest pictures ever! The riverside bath was by far my favorite due to the location by the river and due to the water's temperature which was more bearable to me than the one just next to the riverside (also stunning but too...
