After Yufuin, we headed to Kurokawa to take a dip in its famous onsen (hot spring). We stayed at Yumerindo Hanadomari, a ryokan with own private in-room onsen.
The nightly rate per person includes both dinner and breakfast! We were highly anticipating the meals because this ryokan has high ranking for its food.

Our menu… unfortunately, can’t read it..
shochu.. a Kyushu island specialty, distilled beverage made from barley, buckwheat, sweet potato and rice..
I wasn’t too sure of what I ate.. but it all tasted very delicious and were so ornately presented…
horse sashimi….Kurokawa is in Kyushu’s Kumamoto prefecture, which is famous for horse meat. I had horse sashimi before at Guu, so I wasn’t really shocked. It’s not too gamey and kinda chewy. I think you’re eating this for its texture.
kind of disappointed that the dessert wasn’t Japanese….
we went back to our room and found grilled rice balls!! such a great midnight snack!
we also had our B-speak roll from earlier…
The next morning, they set up the breakfast in our room. That was probably the heaviest breakfast I ever had (not including breakfast buffets). Such a big spread! and so colourful!
FAIM? OUI OUI!!
