Good mid-range ryokan with good food and excellent service. The range of baths is quite extensive. I wasn't too keen on the horsemeat but that may be a personal thing. The only issue with this ryokan is that it is quite far from the main town center, be prepared for quite a walk, or ask the staff to shuttle you into town.

Excellent experience here in Ryokan Sanga

This place was incredible. Hide away from the business and crowded area of the big city and bathing yourself in the sense of nature. It was 1.6 km from the centre of Kurokawa onsen village but that was not a problem. When you arrive at Kurokawa onsen just go to the information centre not so far from the bus stop and tell the staffs which understand English there to call the Ryokan for pick-up service then the Ryokan's staff will come to you in 10 minutes.

This was our 1st experience staying at a Ryokan. We splurged a little by staying a night in both rooms that included a private hot bath because my wife was a little shy. Located outside of the center of Kurokawa, we wanted some privacy & wanted to enjoy nature. We got much more - as the hotel staff was very accommodating; spoke excellent english; provided transportation to/from the bus depot as well as to the Kurokawa Village when we requested (they even held our luggage during the morning of our departure, transported us to the Village, picked us up after a few hours while we enjoyed shopping & then met us with our luggage as they took us to the bus depot); the rooms were very spacious, private & clean; the grounds of the Ryokan were very peaceful; dinner & breakfast we experienced both days were plentiful, tasty (even the horsemeat) and delicious - the presentation of the different dishes was truly remarkable; what an exceptional experience!

We booked the private hanare called Nemu-no-ki. This spacious apartment is above one of the shared baths, though we didn't hear any noise at all. There is one large tatami room, with zataku table and storage. A large bedroom has wooden flooring and very comfortable western beds. A key attraction is that Nemu-no-ki has both an indoor and outdoor private bath - the indoor one built of stone and the outdoor one of wood, situated on a spacious wooden deck. Both of these look out over the river, which one can hear rushing by below. It's a really beautiful apartment. Dinner is served in private areas within a central dining room space. Although the food is reasonably good, it's definitely not the best ryokan kaiseki meal we had in Japan by a long shot. The two main issues are that the courses are not well balanced, with too many clear broth based courses and that they are served far too quickly. We are not slow eaters but were often only starting one course when the next one came, and sometimes the one after that just a few moments later. So courses waiting to be eaten stacked up. This occurred also on our second night, even though we had requested the speed be slowed. Staff were friendly but service felt more like that in a boutique hotel than a traditional ryokan. We would go again, for the stunning accommodation, and of course, the famous onsen bathing, but not for the kaiseki dining experience.

Atmosphere- EXCELLENT When I open the window of my room, it is to the sound of rushing waters down a rapid stream. It's simply AMAZING. The room also has water boiler, and everything you need, including the clogs, yukata and shawl so that you can wrap yourself warm and not catch a cold. The atmosphere around the ryokan is amazing. I am often in a big onsen without anyone else, enjoying both the public and private pools without disturbance. LOVE IT! FOOD- VERY GOOD Although I've tasted better in other ryokans, having stayed in quite a many, I must say the quality and portions were sizeable and significant. I did think the fish could have been better cooked and presented. Staff-- EXCELLENT, especially my driver :) They were the typical polite Japanese staff, and one can't fault any of their service. Attentive but not intrusive. There is only 1 driver that drives u around ryokans to try the various onsens, and the one Sanga Ryokan had was an AMAZING one--caring, attentive and always on time. If he wasn't he would apologise profusely. He was also genuinely interested in the people he ferried and asked many questions despite not knowing English v well :)

It was the best night in my life!

First of all, I would like to thank all people I met in Kushu. This is the most frendly region in Japan, or maybe i just was very lucky. Then i didn't knew what to do because the last bus has gone or try to find the way how i can quickly get to somewhere - i was always saved by somebody. Thank you all, I will back and I will try to plan my jorney more carefully to don't make you troubles! :) And of course Kurokawa Onsen and Sanga Ryokan it was one of the most memorable places I have visited. There are many nice hot springs in this town, but Sanga is very very special inn. It very beautiful and warm. Firstly because of staff. Its not just because they are professionals. They really can to become your family! Then the "check out" time has come, I was crying in my heart I didn't want to go anywhere, if this place isn't Sanga.Thanks to the staff this place have very strong and fantastic atmosphere of Japan, not like some other ryokans in Kurokawa (which have just spirit of "high class european hotel" in spite of japanese-style interior). And I want to note Sanga hot springs. That was excellent! I have privat outdoor bath in my room, but I also tried other hot springs. I cant to find such words to describe my admiration! Sound of the river, scent of the forest and charming views made me to forget about all problems, doubts and about all the world. I already started to recommend Sanga to all my friends and of course I want come back to this incredible place again! With love to Sanga Ryokan.

Sanga Ryokan is one of my favorites, elegant and welcoming, and I will return again precisely because it is away from the crowd. The service is friendly and efficient, the meals are excellent, and the scenery is sublime. The property is large, set in spacious grounds. Our room had it's own stone bath, in a gorgeous setting, though we tried the others on the property and enjoyed them, too. There is no need to try the other onsens because the variety on the property itself will keep you busy. The staff will run you into town whenever you want, but as the town is so small, a few hours there which includes lunch time will probably be enough. The staff at the town information centre will ring the Sanga Ryokan to pick you up after your town visit. We stayed two nights, arriving on the bus from ASO station. You buy your bus ticket from the machine next to the bus staff office. There are staff there to help you, and there are plenty of people going your way. At the Kurokawa Onsen bus stop, we rang for a pick up via our Australian mobile phone and we were picked up in about 5 minutes. This trip we stayed 2 nights at Momijiso (Myajima Is) and 3 nights at Kurama Onsen ( Kyoto), old favorites where we have stayed previously. gg (Mosman, NSW, Australia)

We stayed on the 2nd level in the main building. The room is enough for all 4 of us to share but is not spacious. The meals are excellent and we enjoyed our meals a lot. The baths are great too and there are 3 private baths too. Staff are helpful and friendly even if they are not conversant in English. Beautiful grounds. Definitely worth a stay.

The ryokan staff made us feel welcome right from the beginning, the baths and the surroundings are lovely, and our room, on the first floor of the main building, was simple but perfect. We loved having our own private bath as much as the outdoor ones. Hearing the sound of rushing water, exploring the quiet corners of the ryokan, and enjoying the wonderful meals made for a great getaway. I actually liked that the ryokan was a little ways out of Kurokawa, especially since the staff made transportation easy.
