    As a business traveler, I've had the pleasure to stay at a various assortment of luxury properties around the world. For this family trip, I was looking for a special property where my family can enjoy a few days of relaxation. The staff and property of Kurokawaso has delivered and exceed every aspect of our expectation. Certainly will revisit Kurokawaso again for our future family trip. Thank you again the the entire staff for the wonderful memories.

    This was one of the most beautiful places I have seen in Japan and the staff went far above and beyond to make our stay pleasant, delicious and comfortable. We got lost and they offered to drive 45 minutes to our location to guide us into the resort ( we did end up finding it, but they met us 15 minutes out to be sure we wouldn't use gps and get lost). We were running late and they kept our dinner to serve after all the other guests as late as 10-11pm and did not make us feel awkward about it. They did the same with breakfast when we needed to sleep in, which was not expected or normal for ryokan! Due to an emergency at home we had to leave early and they sent us with a picnic, amazing local coffee blends to go and homemade pie. They also mailed me a dress I forgot in the closet. The trip could have been a disaster but their consideration and kindness made it really lovely. I hope to come back sometime soon :) Even the one day was enough to feel truly relaxed, I can only imagine what 3 days would have been like!

    Amazing Get-Away from the world
    Amazing break from the real world! This ryokan was a short walk outside of the busy main area. 4 Beautiful onsen areas. Amazing dinner and breakfast. We only experienced difficulties at other ryokan-onsen which were closed for cleaning.

    黒川温泉の中でも、かなり良い宿だと思います。 料理は工夫されていて、とても美味しく適度な量でした。 温泉も3種類あり、湯巡り不要だと思うほどです。 年配と若い男性のスタッフの人も話しやすく、とても親切で丁寧な対応でした。
