Brilliant place to rest for a couple of days! Everything was perfect, from the staff’s politeness and helpfulness to the magnificent rooms and onsen :)
This was my best onsen and ryokan experience in Japan! We were met at the bus stop and treated like royalty. A special thanks to Mr. Iwano for taking such good care of us. The resort had two outdoor onsens to use and it was spectacular to sit looking out on the river and the woods while soaking in the mineral bath. The silence and mountains were special after city visits. The dinner and breakfast were both delicious and our desire for coffee before starting breakfast was met with a smile and fantastic service. We checked out and enjoyed the village the next day and they met us at the bus stop to catch our bus to Beppu.
That we didn’t stay two nights!!
Kurokawa is one of Japan’s prettiest hot spring resort towns, and Miyama Sansou is probably one of the best places to stay: it is a bit out of the village in a beautiful setting with the villas situated along a river. Lots of trees were om blossom. The villa is huge, we liked the western bedding, and the private onsen was wonderful. It is quiet and peaceful, and we understood later that many hot spring places can we overcrowded with tourists. We used the very nice outdoor onsen at the Yamamizuki (next door), with a spectacular view of the river and surrounding woods. The Kaiseki diner in the evening was excellent, and liked the special sake deal (3 sake wines out of the list to try for only 1,000 Yen). There is lots to see and do in this beautiful region on Kyushu, Aso mountain is only 50 minutes away. highly recommended!
Breakfast, dinner and staff service was excellent. They provided us with free drinks, free towels (to keep) and clothing amenities in the rooms. It snowed while we there there and they provided coats for us to wear to dinner. We booked a room which had a private onsen and had access to three other onsens, including yamamizuki (wth a gorgeous view of the river). It was located at the edge of the township so driving here is recommended.
I’m not sure if they had free WIFI at the restaurant. Free wifi was good but limited mainly to the rooms.
Very quiet location, good for those seek for privacy. Staffs are extremely friendly and helpful. We left a personal item behind and the hotel staff helped finding it sending back to us the next day we called! Will go back again.
Check out time at 11:00am is a bit rush, wish to be a bit later.
