A high-quality hot spring inn just for two, hidden deep in Kurokawa.

Each room is built uniquely and every room has a spacious hot spring bath and wooden deck.

The hot spring uses water drawn up from the ground (waters are diluted with groundwater due to high temperatures). If you open the windows, the green of the mountains and the mutter of the clean, flowing water will bring you all the more relaxation.

The bathhouse some distance from the rooms is another charm. We have individual bath holes as well as an open-air bath absorbed in the colors of the season. The nebulous waters are filled with natural salts and well-reputed as being gentle on the skin.

Dinner is served in an open kitchen, rare in mountain inns. The chef’s talents prepare vegetables grown in the grand nature of Aso and seafood from Asakusanada, giving the feeling of a performance.

In this hot spring inn for adults in the mountains of Kurokawa, we invite you to experience a special time for two.

黒川温泉には久しぶりに泊まりました。 こちらの宿は初めてのところでしたが、とても美味しい食事に大満足でした。 特に、夕食は素晴らしく、どの品々も細やかで丁寧な仕上がりの素敵なお料理でした。

I stayed at Kurokawa Onsen for the first time in a long time. This was my first time at this inn, but I was very satisfied with the delicious food. Especially, the dinner was wonderful, and all the items were delicate and polite finishes.

The first Kurokawa Onsen this time. We stayed at Okukurogawa no Sato no Yu, which is a little far away. Surrounded by a lot of greenery, the atmosphere of a precious Japanese atmosphere made me feel very calm when I arrived. Each staff member of the inn had a pleasant feeling, and I was grateful for their support. On the morning of our stay, the staff members who noticed that they were injuring their toes and were dragging their toes called on us, and we were pleased to switch from sandals to slippers. The room was very comfortable with sofas, beds and ceiling fans. Cold liquor while listening to the sound of the river on the wood deck was the best. I really liked the hot springs in the guest rooms, but I was concerned about the unusual noise of the ventilation fan bearings. The open-air bath for men on the first day was surrounded by greenery, and I was soothed by the quiet, large open-air bath. On the morning of the second day, I was hoping that the cave bath had changed from the one for women the day before to the one for men, but it was disappointing because it did not. The evening bar "Sun Moon" is a special cocktail with a reasonable price made by a friendly master of craftsmanship, and it was a very delicious cocktail to enjoy slowly in your mouth. Fruit cocktails take advantage of the deliciousness of the ingredients and are recommended for those who can not usually drink alcohol from the beginning to the end without diluting with ice. I would like to revisit it again.

Waraku's hot springs are nebulous. They are filled with natural salts that occasionally change their color and are popular for their gentleness on the skin. Another charm is that you can bathe in waters at the perfect temperature 24 hours a day. The public open-air bath and anayu baths alternate between genders on a time rotation. (Please note that there are no shower facilities at the open-air or anayu baths. Please take your time enjoying the hot springs.)

Quality: Sulfur-containing sodium chloride sulfate spring
Effective on fatigue recovery, stiff shoulder, stiffness, and neuralgia, but it is said to be especially good for cuts, burns, etc. It is gentle to the skin.
