熊本県阿蘇郡南小国町にあり、阿蘇山の北に位置した南小国温泉郷の一つ。全国屈指の人気温泉地として知られ、2009年版ミシュラン・グリーンガイド・ジャポンで、温泉地としては異例の二つ星で掲載。 ほとんどの旅館に露天風呂があって、温泉巡りができる「入湯手形」を購入することにより、3カ所まで選んで入湯可能。『手形』は旅館組合の事務所兼案内所で買える(絶対お得なので買うべき) ただし、2016年くらいから、 昔ほどのブランド力が落ちてきて、 魅力も少しづつ落ちつつあるのが正直な感想。 今一度、変革が必要な温泉エリア。 一度は行くべきだが、代わり映えないので リピートするかはあなた次第か。 It is located in Minamioguni-machi, Aso District, Kumamoto Prefecture, one of the Minamikosito hot-spring resort located in the north of Mt. Aso. Known as one of the most popular hot springs nationwide, it is a 2009 Michelin...More

Kurokawa onsen can be accessed using the highway express bus from hakata (takes 2.5 hrs). When you arrive there is a feeling of calmness. Cute little shops to explore. You can purchase an onsen pass which allows you to visit the onsens in the town.

Although it is fairly hilly, it is easy to walk from end-to-end and from top-to-bottom because of its compactness. They have a 1300-yen onsen hopping pass which allows you to visit 3 onsens outside of your own. The pass is good for 6 months. Kurokawa...More

It's fun to walk around this small resort town and see the traditional-ish buildings and shops. If you come here, you should stay at least one night (and preferably two) at a ryokan.

A quiet and has a variety of good ryokans. We did a short walk around and look at the shops. Due to its location, the prices at the shop are slightly higher than bigger town but reasonable.
