Where is Kurokawa? Discover The Onsen Villiage of Kurokawa which lies deep in the valleys of Mt. Aso in Japan.

Kurokawa Onsen (黒川温泉) is one of Japan’s most attractive hot spring towns, located in the middle of Kyushu about 20 kilometers north of Mount Aso…. Kurokawa’s townscape is dominated by natural colors and materials, wooden buildings, earthen walls, stone stairs and a river flowing through. The town center, located in a forested valley, is compact and easily explored on foot, except for a few ryokan which are located less centrally.

The town’s lanes are lined by ryokan, public bath houses, attractive shops and cafes, a small shrine and bridges that lead over the river directly to ryokan entrances.
