Kurokawa Onsen is the pride and joy of Kumamoto Prefecture, and strolling through this little spa town is one of its many pleasures. I recommend you first get a map from the information center (see photo). Time flies quickly as you take in the many restaurants, cafes, and stores selling pickles, liquor, rice crackers, sweets, ceramics and other local attractions. End your visit at the Ashiyu or foot spa, warming you up and taking your tiredness away.
