I have been to three ryokans with both private and public onsens during my Kyushu trip and I have to admit that Yamamizuki is by far the best of the best of all I have ever been to. Starting with a pickup van from Kurokawa Onsen bus stop, the hotel staff was very nice and helpful. He gave us a...

About 15 min drive from the Kurokawa town center. This Ryokan is up in the hills and nested in nature. They are known for their spectacular huge outdoor onsen by the stream. It was a dream came through to bath in total nature. No artificial screen was needed to protect our privacy as it faces a remote hilly wood. The...

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...

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....

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...

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.

This onsen ryokan is located about a three hour bus ride from Fukuoka city.
