View details


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 kaiseki meals made from plenty of fresh local vegetables and other ingredients. Experience the taste of the seasonal dishes.

The 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.
