Staff were very welcoming and helpful. Room was spacious and comfortable with a lovely relaxing ambiance. Very nice additional touches, such as nice toiletries. Meals were meticulously prepared and beautifully presented but somewhat challenging for those unfamiliar with Kaiseki cuisine.
While the meals were excellently presented, there was a lot of fish and meat sashimi, a definite challenge for people unused to eating raw meat, particularly horse meat! With Kaiseki meals there is a set menu and no choice of food for dinner.
The food: great Kaiseki dinner & breakfast served.
Location is bit far from Kurokawa Onsen Bus Station, but ryokan provides pick-up & drop-off service from/to the bus station.
It is slightly away from the centre (up a small slope). However it is away from the walking crowd. It is also along a 4km hiking trail. We have discovered an unmarked trail-path the leads us back to the Ryokan after Lover’s Hill (part of the hiking trail). There is 2 hiking trail around 4km each. The staff is very friendly. Especially the Oji-san who drove us to and fro the bus stop.
The outdoor onsen is a bit small next to the forest. However, it is all natural. The water temperature of the indoor onsen is slightly cold (need fixing)
All staff was kind. There was staff who can speak Korean. It was very convenient. Dinner and breakfast were so nice that we felt like being treated well.
The floor of the open area spring bath was a little dirty.
We like everything! The gracious shuttle driver, location away from the main roads (a slight uphill walk but not difficult), the large tatami room with balcony, the totally awesome kaiseki meals (truly wonderful), the respectful privacy offered by all staff, the heavenly futon to cuddle under, the outstanding onsen - so clean and beautiful.
Nothing we didnt like. Everything was excellent!
With a stay at Kurokawa Onsen Ryokan Ichinoi in Minamioguni (Kurokawa Onsen), you'll be steps from Yamakawa Onsen and a 4-minute drive from Meotodaki Fall. The front desk is staffed during limited hours. Free self parking is available onsite.
