黒川温泉 旅館 奥の湯 Inn Oku-no-yu

Ryokan/Inn
Inn Oku-no-yu / Kumamoto Kurokawa・Tsuetate 44

Overview

An inn at a quiet location, upstream from the river that feeds the rice fields along the Kurokawa Hot Springs. The babbling of the river and the surrounding mountains adds color to the seasons and the inn.

On an area of over 6,000 square meters, there are 9 different types of baths that range from open air baths to family baths. You can enjoy trying these hot springs one after another.

The charm of Okunoyu is that it is the only location in Kurokawa with a steam room, a stone sauna, a pool heated by the hot springs, and a full spa. Take your time and ease the daily exhaustion of your mind and body.

We prepare seasonal meals made from plenty of fresh local vegetables and other ingredients. Experience the taste of Kumamoto in specialties such as raw horsemeat, Higo beef, and grilled fish with the seasonal dishes.

Scenery that changes in response to the transitioning seasons, natural water born of the grand nature of Aso and complete facilities worthy of a resort.

Visit Kurokawa with your family and loved ones and spend a relaxing time where no time is wasted.

Read more This is my family’s first ryokan and onsen experience and it will not be as memorable without Relux and Okunoyu! We were greeted at the moment our car arrives at the parking. Staff speaks English and check in was smooth. Thanks for helping our group with elderly & toddler as well as with luggage and show us the two rooms. The meals were exceptional and we enjoyed our first onsen experience very much. We Are glad to have private bath easily available which made it easy for us with toddler. We wish to come back next time and stay longer.
