Kurokawa Onsen Gosyo Gekkoujyu


Kurokawa Onsen Gosyo Gekkoujyu must leave a lasting impression.  This is like a Samurai’s residence.  Everything, such as architecture, furniture, interior, and decoration, etc., is sophisticated.  It is truly exceptional.  From the first moment arriving at the last-minute leaving, we were pampered and treated like royalty.    If you want to chill out at luxury modern ryokans in Kurokawa Onsen, I would highly recommend it.  Perhaps, if you are looking for rooms with wonderful large private hot springs, I think you should stay here.  On the other hand, if you want to hang out around the center of Kurokawa Onsen in Yukata whenever you like, this is not.  The location is a little away.  It takes 5min by car.  Gosyo Gekkoujyu would be great for couples, solo travelers, family, or small groups.  The ambiance is tranquil, serene, and relaxed.  We never met other guests during our stay.  There are only 8 rooms.  Absolutely the property completely emphasizes private experiences for each guest.  A one-night stay wouldn’t be enough.  If you are going to stay here, I would highly recommend booking rooms called “Izayoi”, “Kazemachi” or “Kagetsu”.  You can see beautiful mountains while soaking in the bath.  We spent a lot of time jumping in and out of our large private hot spring.  On top of that, separately the foot spa was installed under the Irori table in our room!  Facilities including home appliances tend to be the latest.  Free WiFi reception was sometimes slow in my experience.  The room is spacious, functional, and user-friendly.  All of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, pajamas, yukatas, bathrobes, a coffee mill with coffee beans, a green tea set, and a complimentary mini-bar including beer, etc.  There are john masters organics amenities in the bathroom.  Room service is available.  There is no convenience store around here.  You may want to buy your necessities before coming here.  Then this is child-friendly.  Staff can provide amenities, samue outfits, and meals for small children if you request.  Then Gosyo Gekkoujyu has a universal design room called “Tensin” for wheelchair users.  Wheelchairs are available for borrowing.  If you bring people with weak feet, you may want to inform the staff in advance as they can arrange a room near the reception.  Once you enter your room, you wouldn’t need to move around as each room has a wonderful private hot spring.  Then there is a complimentary amazing private family hot spring in-house called “Tenku no Rotenburo” which you can use.  Don’t forget to try it.  You can fully enjoy soaking in the bath while viewing a starry sky and a beautiful moon in good weather.  That’s precious time.  You need to book it in advance when you check-in.  There is no communal hot spring in-house.  Then kaiseki food experience for dinner and breakfast was just divine.  The food tends to be sophisticated.  Are you a gourmet?  If so, you should stay here.  We were so impressed by each dish with much detail and care.  All ingredients were high-end including abalone, Japanese spiny lobster, and beef, etc.  The portion tends to be big.  You won’t be able to resist even you are full.  Don’t forget to bring your empty stomach.  You can get free horse meat and beef refills which are surprisingly tender.  Then some rice balls for a night snack were offered after dinner.  On top of that, a complimentary lunch meal was offered.  That’s a great service.  You can choose either a beef burger or buckwheat noodle for lunch.  Then you can choose either your room or the dining room when you have meals.  If the weather is fine, I would recommend having breakfast in the dining area.  You can see a wonderful panoramic view while enjoying food.  *Please note that inform the staff when you book a room with meals if you have any food allergies.  They may not be able to prepare alternative food if you request on that day.  Then there wouldn’t be nice restaurants around the property.  The location is out of the way.  You may want to book a room including meals.  Then all staff was exquisite, sophisticated, and considerate.  It couldn’t be better.  If you expect 5-star hotel service, you should stay here.  Overall the price range would be reasonable.  The performance of the service was above expectations.  We would stay here again.  At last, don’t forget to check a weather forecast before booking a room.  That’s the most important.  Free shuttle service is available from Kurokawa Onsen Bus Stop.  You need to book it in advance.  Have a nice trip!  Welcome to receive any questions about the property from the below space.  *Check-in and out times 3:00 PM/11:00 AM If you check-in after 18:00, you need to inform staff in advance.  **All information is as of the date that I posted on my blog.  Check Availability and Pricing for the ryokan on Agoda or Booking.com
