Overnight trip to Kurokawa Onsen

Since August the 19th was a holiday we used the opportunity to go for an overnight trip to the Kurokawa Onsen. We left in the morning on the 18th and our first stop was a small village called Mameta and the Sapporo factory in Hita. We were guided through the interior of the complex and were able to see how the delicious Sapporo and Yebisu beer are produced. Of course we had the chance to do some taste testing!

After that we went to the Kurokawa Onsen, which is an area famous for its hot springs. Sadly we had some rain, but our motivation didn’t drop.

The cottage which we were able to use was also in this area so we took the chance to take a dip in the hot spring before our BBQ started in the evening.

The next day we wanted to go to Mount Aso, but sadly the weather didn’t want us to reach the top and let us see one of the still active craters. Instead we used the time to visit Kuramoto castle and get some insight in the history of Japan.

In the evening we made it back home and the enjoyable overnight trip came to a close.
