This is Jizo shrine in the center of Kurokawa.
Look closely, can you see lots of Onsen Hopping tokens?
For good luck you can write a messege on your used Onsen Hopping token and hang it up outside the shrine.
This month is the best time to view autumn foliage in and around Kurokawa onsen.
So take a walk around town, a hike to Seiryu no mori, or just relax and enjoy the views from an outdoor bath. We suggest Oyado Noshiyu near the Visitor Center or Ryokan Sanga (on the edge of town) for leafy autumn scenery.
If you are driving we recommend Kuju Road Park, an 8.8km toll road through Kuju foothills, which are particularly beautiful at this time of year. It is about 15 min. by car from Kurokawa onsen area. And 500 yen per car.
