Kurokawa Onsen Ryokan Ichinoi

6630ー1 Manganji Minamioguni, Aso-gun, Kumamoto 黒川温泉 旅館 壱の井


A popular sulfur hot spring with many health benefits

This onsen lodge is popular for its milky white sulfur hot springs. It is located on an elevation along a narrow forest road, around 7 minutes away on foot from Kurokawa Onsen. It is surrounded by the thick foliage of trees, and has an elegant and welcoming exterior.

The onsen is a simple sulfur hot spring with plenty of mineral deposits and a pH of 5.1. The mild spring water is rich in metasilicic acid which are natural skin moisturizers. You can enjoy it in an indoor communal bath, an open-air bath, and 4 rental private baths (separate fee required).

To use the private baths, you must make a reservation with your preferred time at the front desk. You can enjoy a luxurious soak in total privacy as the free-flowing spring waters continuously fill the spacious bath.

Note that the spring water contains hydrogen sulfide which can corrode iron, copper, tin, and other metals, so you should remove any metallic accessories before bathing. Day trip guests can use only the open-air bath and the private baths.

The ryokan serves popular kaiseki course meals made with regional ingredients. You can savor Higo-ushi beef, basashi(horse meat), rainbow trout, and fresh seasonal vegetables, as well as a local brand of rice known as Akigeshiki.

This place lets you enjoy a relaxing time in a quiet, rustic atmosphere. You can also take a refreshing stroll on the walking courses around the area.
