The Kurofune Hotel is a large hotel with impressive facilities, but sorely in need of an upgrade. Staff are wonderful and try hard to make up for the fact that this hotel has seen much better days and is now struggling to bring in the crowds. A nice tourist class hot spring hotel.

We wanted a private on-sen and was a bit disappointed on the first day since the water did not look clean. I guess they cleaned up after the room was last used but since it was an outdoor on-sen, small flies and dust/dirt got into the water when the room was unused. We stayed for two nights and obviously they... More

Stayed here with family to experience a traditional Japanese experience. The ocean view rooms were really spacious and included a private bath on the deck. The course meals (dinner & breakfast) were very traditional and worth the experience. Some of the best meals we had during our two week stay. The hotel itself was a bit dated; a bit of... More

Ever go urban exploring and find an abandoned hotel? Upon doing so, do you run away in fear of monsters and pathogens or take a step inside and try to imagine what the place was like in full glory? The kurofune hotel allows you to explore the compelling purgatory between abandonment and old. It is glorious. The arcade? From 1989.... More

Stayed here one night in a room with its own rotenburo with an ocean view. Overall great experience and for me worth another go. The decor and guest events probably reveal the age of the owners/managers and therefore attracts similar generation people more but I'd say it's definitely worth a try if you're in the area looking for the classic...

Kurofune is like a 1960s Rat Pack favorite hotel, if they had ever come to Shimoda, Japan. But with time, its glamor is fading a bit. Not run down, but it's a big hotel that requires a lot of upkeep and some updating, and they almost, but don't quite, do so. Still, comfortable, large Japanese style rooms with a nice... More
