The Kurakawa Onsen is located at the Aso-gun of the Kumamoto Prefecture. There are a lot of hot spring resorts located at the two sides of the Harakawa river. The hot spring resorts try using some less striking advertisements to maintain the harmonious environment. You will also find that the local architectural style of the area is maintained.
