    Kurokawa Onsen village is everything a traditional Japanese hot spring village should be - tranquil, pretty, relaxing, and charming without being hackneyed. An hour's drive from the rail junction at Aso, the village manages to find a balance between the neon and concrete sprawl of larger onsen towns, and the ultra-expensive exclusivity that makes others inaccessible to all but the well-heeled. The two dozen traditional ryokan inns in town have banded together to allow day visitors to visit on the 'onsen passport' system, a 1200Y pass that grants access to any three of the onsen in the village. Personal favorite? -- Yamamizuki ryokan's stunning riverside bath, a short walk from the town center.

    A small village up in a mountain valley of Kyushu, Kurokawa Onsen makes a great stop (overnight if you have the money) for an afternoon on the way from Aso to Beppu. Buy an "onsen passport" and sample three of the village's onsen, each located in one of the many ryokan.
