Spring is slowly but surely coming to Kurokawa Onsen…the mornings can be cool and crisp,yet the afternoons can heat up to over 15 or 16 ° C. Warm enough for an ice cream while you wander through town!

You’ll notice one or two areas where essential road repair and construction is going on in the center of Kurokawa if you visit at this time,and parking in the main Visitor Center car park is strictly limited as building work continues on Ryokan Nanjoen.  A little birdie tells me that some improvements will be going on at the Visitor Center itself later this year.

You can park at several other car parks in Kurokawa for free, one I often use is on the left just before the temporary traffic lights on Sakuradori. Or  continue past the Visitor Center and you’ll find several other numbered overflow  car parks  further down the road,although signs seem to be entirely in Japanese!

On a recent visit  my son made this fun and informative mini video about Kurokawa Onsen , please take a look  at Kurokawa Onsen part 1 on YouTube!

Resident in Kyushu for over 20 years and fortunate to be living in this beautiful corner of Aso close to a number of onsens including Kurokawa, which I love to visit with friends or my guests from overseas. Keeping this semi-official blog in English for the Kurokawa Onsen Ryokan Association now gives me the perfect excuse...I just HAVE to try all the (public outdoor) baths I possibly can!
