The charms of Kurokawa Onsen are the buildings of the many ryokan with their old-fashioned elegance surrounding the Chikugo River, and the outdoor baths, overflowing with ingenuity of the different ryokan and hotels. Kurokawa Onsen is one of the most scenic hot spring towns in the Kyushu region. All the buildings are made to perfectly fit in the luxuriant nature: the structures are made of wood and rocks, the same materials that constitute the surrounding forests. Apart from the numerous private onsen, there are 2 public bath houses where you can enjoy a relaxing and revitalizing experience, maybe after a walk in the forested valley of Kurokawa Onsen. If you buy an Onsen-hopping Pass, you can enjoy a variety of outdoor baths at your leisure.

Kurokawa Onsen is the place to go for travelers or tourists who want to enjoy beautiful nature and experience real Japanese hot springs.
