The attractions of Kurokawa Onsen are the architecture of old-fashioned and elegant Japanese-style hotels along the Chikugo River, and their original and meticulously-designed open-air baths, which fill up the place with a sensational atmosphere.
For spa-hopping, the bathing pass ”Kurokawa Onsen Yurutto Coupon” is highly recommended: the pass comes with six tickets for 500yen and are available at any locations in Kurokawa with sweets and snacks.
Kurokawa Onsen promotes the use of environmental-friendly soaps and shampoos, and the cultivation of plants and trees every year, in an effort to preserve the Chikugo River where fireflies can still be witnessed today. From Kumamoto Nagomi Tourism Site.
