Well….maybe just a little quieter, there is a notable absence of tour groups, and most of the visitors in town  seem to be young ,recently graduated students on day trips. Inns and outdoor public  baths  are all open ,as are most of the shops, cafes and restaurants .

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!
