Lovely place. Great to be able to unwind and spend time in such a beautiful area. It was an ideal location for going to the rugby in Oita but also for visiting the onsen in Kurokawa. Despite the negatives, we enjoyed our stay here and would recommend.
There was hardly any consideration for Western needs. No knives or forks, no furniture at all - despite the confirmation stating that futons were in place. It was sit on the floor, or outside on the deck... There was also nowhere to put any clothing - we had to use our suitcase. I know, most travellers do, but we were there for 3 nights and moving around Japan, so it would've been nice to be able to sort our stuff...
Very nice host, welcoming. The room is actually a small cottage house made of wood. Has kitchen facilities, a bath and a bathroom. Sleeping on a mat on the floor (still can't get why japanese like it so much- why not invest in a real bed..). Take into account you need a car to get here.
The owner is very friendly, she used translate machine to communicate with us.
If do not have own vehicle, difficult to reached it. As the cottage located far from the sightseeing and hotspring area.
Great place with everything you need.
This cottage was perfect for our trip to Kurosawa onsen, we stayed 2 nights in this wonderful fully equipped cottage in the mountain/woods. The host was so helpful before we arrived giving us lots of information about the onsen hopping passes and the surrounding area. When we arrived we had a very warm welcome by the lovely couple that own the cottages, giving us lots of lovely treats and games to play. The cottage was very comfortable, kitted out with TV, bath/shower and fully functioning kitchen. As there are not many restaurants in the area it's best to do a big food shop and cook breakfast and dinner yourself. There is a lovely seating area outside where you can eat or have a BBQ. (Have to hire the BBQ before you arrive) We would advise that you need a car to reach Kurokawa onsen as well at this cottage as it's located a short drive from the village. All round wonderful stay and one of our favourite parts of Japan. The host made us feel so welcome and wanted to ensure we had the best time.
With a stay at Kurokawa Mori no Cottage in Minamioguni (Kurokawa Onsen), you'll be steps from Yamakawa Onsen and a 4-minute drive from Ota Onsen.
