Thank you for your feedback. It is a great honor. AMATO is a popular room for repeater travelers. It is certainly a good room that you want to live in!Rooms, meals, hot springs ... We are pleased that you like it.Tea censer is also popular scent. The scent of tea makes my heart gentle.We are very pleased that Mr/Ms Joe G liked it as well. Takufe is an inn in the mountains, so it is difficult to get there. However, it is fun to drive Kumamoto in the four seasons. Please come again in another season. Of course We have confidence in other rooms. Please come and stay with us in various rooms. We are preparing a lot of OMOTENASHI and waiting for Mr / Ms Joe G.

We feel very good.Mr / Ms Bravo J, Thank you for your feedback.We are pleased to receive many impressed impressions.Everyone at TAKEFUE will spend time of healing and become happy. We feel very good.TAKEFUE offers more than the price hospitality. We are very honored to like you. In autumn, TAKEFUE is a beautiful and very popular season of autumn leaves. I would like to see it once. Snow makeup in winter is also beautiful. Bamboo is beautiful in summer. TAKEFUE boasts every season. I am sorry that reservation acquisition is difficult. We hope to see Mr / Ms Bravo J again. For that reason, we are waiting for the best OMOTENASHI.

Thank you for your question. In case of using JR Kyushu, it is best to arrive at Kurokawa Onsen by bus. The TAKEFUE staff will pick you up to Kurokawa Onsen free of charge. Please contact us in advance. Details are on the official website. Please refer. ■TAKEFUE official homepage → Access page We are also looking forward to seeing you.

"The ones with private onsens are worth the extra money but the smaller rooms are also amazing, we stayed in both for good comparison."
"There are a lot of steps within the compound. Check with reservations if that is a concern."
"The ones with the private outdoor baths are worth it if you want to go for a soak 24/7."
"Every room is amazing. If you stay in multiple rooms you will need to go off site for 3-4 hours. The city of Kurokawa is worth exploring"
"Any villa is fine, even though you choose the less expensive. They are still very big & of good food selection"
