Home Japan Travel Guide Kyushu Kumamoto Kurokawa Onsen

People flock to Kurokawa Onsen near Mt Aso in Kyushu for one reason; to soak in natural hot springs with the best views. The location is secluded and a bit remote. This makes it easy to completely refresh yourself by just being in this small town during an overnight stay.

As there are multiple onsen, you can choose where to go. It is good to know that if you want the most impressive views you should go to an onsen outside of the village center. The onsen in the central area are the most traditional ones. This area has received many regular and noble visitors over the centuries, and its history is long.

Most onsen also allow day trippers to use their facilities for a small fee, so you are not required to stay overnight. You can even purchase a day pass that allows you access to 3 different onsen. You can then move between them just wearing your yukata and wooden slippers making this experience a thoroughly Japanese one.
