里の湯 和らく

Satonoyu-Waraku / Kumamoto Kurokawa・Tsuetate 71


A high quality hot spring inn just for two, hidden deep in Kurokawa.

Each room is built uniquely and every room has a spacious hot spring bath and wooden deck.

The hot spring uses water drawn up from the ground (waters are diluted with ground water due to high temperatures). If you open the windows, the green of the mountains and the mutter of the clean, flowing water will bring you all the more relaxation.

The bathhouse some distance from the rooms is another charm. We have individual bath holes as well as an open air bath absorbed in the colors of the season. The nebulous waters are filled with natural salts and well reputed as being gentle on the skin.

Dinner is served in an open kitchen, rare in mountain inns. The chef’s talents prepare vegetables grown in the grand nature of Aso and seafood from Asakusanada, giving the feeling of a performance.

In this hot spring inn for adults in the mountains of Kurokawa, we invite you to experience a special time for two.

I was moved in a very nice room. The old furniture, the big pillars, the beams, etc. were wonderful. The spacious and spacious space was so restless. The bath in the room was great. I could see the scenery outside and I was completely relaxed. The food was fresh fish and all fresh vegetables were delicious. I was full with lots of food. I am delighted to have very good memories. I think I want to go again.

I was able to spend a very nice time. Thank you for the perfect response to allergies and hate foods. Thank you very much for your quick response to the temperature adjustment of the room's bath, despite the late hours. The food was so delicious that I could not eat it. After the meal, he gave me a tour of the hot water, and thanks to that, when it was dinner we had a good drink too ... It was kind to the people of the staff, thank you for the bright and enjoyable correspondence. After that, the bartender's older brother was having fun-I was healed by the fine-grained customer service and the pleasant space. Also, I would like to visit you by all means

Waraku's hot springs are nebulous. They are filled with natural salts that occasionally change their color and are popular for their gentleness on the skin. Another charm is that you can bathe in waters at the perfect temperature 24 hours a day. The public open-air bath and anayu baths alternate between genders on a time rotation. (Please note that there are no shower facilities at the open-air or anayu baths. Please take your time enjoying the hot springs.)

Quality: Sulfur-containing sodium chloride sulfate spring
Effective on fatigue recovery, stiff shoulder, stiffness, and neuralgia, but it is said to be especially good for cuts, burns, etc. It is gentle to the skin.
