Having visited this mountain onsen yeas ago, I thought that perhaps I had romanticized its memory. Nope, the place is just amazing. Getting there at sunset allows you to see both the surrounding mountains in the light and the dark, and both are spectacular. The...More
Loved it. Access was easy even with the changes due to the typhoon; without trains, you have to take a bus from Ichihara station; some buses only go up to Kibuneguchi, others go straight to Kurama Onsen. Kurama temple is closed so it is not...More
We stayed only one night, but it was a relaxing one. The food was tasty and served in a traditional manner by the very helpful staff. The indoors onsen was good, but the view from the outdoors one made it an exceptional experience. Would recommend...More

We walked Mt Kurama then walk another 20 minutes or so to get here. I wish we had realised there was a regular bus from Kurama station!
Anyway, we had a lovely early dinner at the lovely traditional sit-on-floor restaurant at this complex, then headed...More
We visited Kurama Onsen after two hours hiking on Kurama mountain. It was a great way to close our day, the setting in the outdoor onsen was very nice, with relaxing view on the foliage and nearby mountains. A person at the reception speaks English...More
Yes, naked. The genders are separated so there isn't really a modesty problem. But the family can't all be together. It's a very beautiful area so when my family come they like to describe guys side versus women's side... More
