    A wonderful Experience

    what an amazing experience. The onsen is beautiful, the staff is incredible and the experience is out of this world. I felt like I was back in Edo Japan. The rooms are incredible and the area is wonderful. They service so much food and are soo accommodating as well. Definitely give Kurama Onsen a try, it will be so worth it!
