Have a cosy night at some of Japan’s finest hot springs
Kuroishi’s hot springs have water so good you’ll never want to get out. The hot springs are naturally heated and purported to have various health benefits thanks to the minerals the water contains. Here are some of the beautiful and unique hot springs Kuroishi has to offer.
Vegetarianism is not common in the Japanese countryside. Please double-check the Vegetarian Type which the service provider can accommodate to make sure that it meets your needs. Katsuo Dashi (ﬁsh broth) is used for many types of seasoning and is very diﬃcult to remove from traditional Japanese cooking. Often being able to eat trace amounts of the ubiquitous Katsuo Dashi (ﬁsh stock) makes it easier to ﬁnd options.
NOTE: It is diﬃcult and not culturally sensitive to change meal requests, or make new meal demands, onsite when you arrive at accommodations. Vegetarian types must be conﬁrmed during the reservation process and respected during your visit.
Kanesada Ryokan is a quaint hot spring inn in Kuroishi’s hot spring area. Dinner and breakfast feature a generous variety of different local dishes. You’ll always have a great time here with its charming owner.
Lamp no Yado Aoni Onsen
Hidden deep in the Aoni Valley, Aoni Onsen is a hot spring free from distractions. No electricity or internet, just you and nature. As the sun sets, the inn is illuminated by over 100 oil lamps. A stay at Aoni Onsen is a real opportunity to switch off and have a tranquil experience that often can’t be had anymore.
The owners are so welcoming you’ll feel as if you have gained a new family in Japan. The authentic Japanese-style food is healthy, and vegan and vegetarian options are also available.
Kazen no Sho
