What is a Ryokan? Ryokans are the best way to experience Japanese culture and enjoy the true comforts of Japanese hospitality and service.
Hot springs have a very long history in Japan, and they are an intimate part of Japanese culture. There are over 3,000 "onsen" ,or hot springs, in Japan. Many can be found at the ryokans available on Japanese Guest Houses.
From JR Tazawako train station, it is a 50 minute taxi ride to Kuroyu Onsen. By bus, please take the Ugokotsu Bus bound for Nyuto Onsen and get off at the Ganiba bus stop. From the Ganiba stop there is a pick up service. When you arrive at JR Tazawako train station, BEFORE you board the bus, call the Kuroyu Onsen and tell them which bus you will be taking to Ganiba. The free shuttle bus will then be waiting there to take you to the ryokan.
