    Although it is in a distance away from Kurokawa onsen town, the free shuttle from hotel makes travelling easy. The outside bath has good view but the water is too hot for one to soak in. The inside bath also has good view of waterfall. Amenities (eg. to

    숙소까지 가는 길이 멀지만 온천마을까지 먼거는 다 마찬가지고 료칸도 깊숙이 있다고하지만 버스 내리는곳부터 마중나오시고 데려다 주시고 너무 좋았습니다. 모든 직원분이 친절하시고 노천탕도 너무 좋습니다. 실내탕은 생각보다 작았지만 창밖의 폭포가 가까워서 앉아보기 너무 좋았습니다. 객실탕은 1명?2명 들어갈정도로 작았지만 족욕하듯 발만 담구고 맥주마시니 좋더라구요ㅎㅎ 좋다는말만 하는거 같지만 진짜 좋았습니다ㅎㅎ 다음에 또 료칸을 가면 이곳으로 가려구요!
