We went there for 2 days and it could not have been more wonderful. From the moment you arrive everything you could need is taken care of for you. The staff is incredibly friendly and helpful. The rooms were beautiful, we stayed in a different room each night and they each were amazing. The food was fantastic and there was... More

I just left today, but already consider abt coming next time, in another season (or rather, would love to come in all seasons). Takefue is spotless, from the view, to the room, the food, the service, the onsen, everything is simply perfect. Ms. Mayo helps us on all what we need, our sincere gratitude to her and all staff in... More

Takefue is truly a class above any other ryokan or hotel - everything from location, food, service to facilities was top-notch. It's a couple hours from Hakata by bus, but don't let that deter you, because Kurokawa Onsen is a beautiful and peaceful town with numerous nature walks and charming shops to explore. Our family took two rooms, both of... More

We had a honeymoon trip at Takefue. Everything was awesome especially private huge outdoor onsen in the room.We could float a tray with a sake bottle on top in the bath. They also provided an enormous public rotemburo, which can be reserved for private bathing so we had a chance to take many pictures in the onsen. Takefue has exclusive... More

We stayed over night at 竹ふえ to celebrate my husband's birthday. We were originally wait listed but we got lucky to have an opening on the day we wanted to travel. The property had a beautiful garden and landscapes. We were so happy with the size of the beautiful outdoor bath. It also comes with a table and foot bath... More

It is hard to put into words how special of a place Takefue is. Not only is it the most beautiful, relaxing and awe inspiring place we have ever stayed, the staff of this wonderful ryokan are some of the loveliest and most caring people we have ever met. We stayed at Takefue on April 15th/16th, the night of the... More

Nestled in the middle of a bamboo forest, Takefue is the perfect getaway for city dwellers, young and old alike. The service is impeccable, food delicious (and always so generous), and the environment absolutely stunning. Never having been a fan of onsen's, Takefue has made my family and I love the hot spring & ryokan experience. The staff's friendliness and... More

Visited the amazing Takefue almost a year ago now and only got time to write this review! I have to say this is one of the very few hotels that truly impressed me and my husband because when it comes to staying at a hotel we are quite picky. We indeed enjoyed every single second at Takefue even though it... More

Staying at Takefue was surreal. Although the employees could improve on their english, they made our stay extremely memorable. The food was unforgettable and the baths were superlative. We left a charger in our room and they were able to return it while we were still 3 hours away from the ryokan. This incident is indicative of the service you... More
