During my trip to Japan in Cherry Blossom season 2016 I wanted to make sure to spend a whole day in a Japanese Onsen Ryokan. Yamanochaya stood out to me for two reasons; firstly I was looking for onsen with 'natural outdoor bath' types of onsen and I also needed a place that accepted solo travelers. The solo traveler part...

We booked the Asebi room, it is a special room with a big round bath, and 2 foot baths, also comes with a private staircase and a private terrace on the top floor. We were driving from Tokyo and was running 1.5 late. The hotel hostess was waiting for us the whole time and was in touch with us about...

The ryokan is perched on a hill. To get there, you need to take a subway train from Odawara (JR line) to Hakone. Then a shuttle bus to the ryokan. Alternatively, just cab from Odawara (Suggested by the ryokan). Thereafter, there is a bridge you need to cross with your bags to walk up a small slope to get to...

To get to Yama no Chaya, you have to cross a rustic bridge that sways gently over a rushing river. It's shaded by a copse of trees, and a steep stone path leads to its unassuming entrance. Inside the ryokan is a world of refined elegance and tranquility. The service is impeccable, and from the moment you enter, you are...

After 5 visits to Japan to hit the ski slopes of Niseko, we finally took some time to explore more of Japan. Travel to Hakone only 30 minutes via Skinkansen to Odwarra and it is an easy taxi ride to Yamanochaya, crossing a very narrow bridge to reach this secluded Ryoken nestled into the hillside. The room is traditional but...

Yamanochaya is a lovely traditional Ryokan operated by the family's third generation. Take a taxi versus the shuttle bus from Yumata station to avoid getting past the narrow bridge and extremely steep driveway to the entrance. The minute you walk into the Ryokan, a warm welcome awaits as your shoes are taken and staff guides you to your room. Along...

Nice property in Hakone, located a bit away from the main road and other houses. The rooms are nice, make sure to select one with private bath. All meals are served in the room. While good, the food didn't impress us, compared to similar places we have visited. Check out the well-stocked shōchū bar!

Beautiful Japanese Onsen in Hakone, an hour from Tokyo by train. Hakone is an amazing country park, with many hot springs and fantastic countryside. Yamanochaya is an upmarket retreat not far from main rail station from Shinjuku

食物無可挑剔的美味,在食材上也十分的講究,唯一真的硬要雞蛋裡挑骨頭的話,是芡汁中讓我吃到小小不勻的顆粒,但除此之外十分完美!服務人員極為禮貌與周到!英文流利更不用說,而房間舒適,同時在裝潢呈設可以看的出來細膩與用心,真的非常完美!絕對大推! Amazing food, outstanding service, and comfortable room, I would strongly recommend this hotel as this will be one of the best Japanese hot spring hotel experience u can ever get!

We had one of the rooms with a private bath, which was wonderful. I was able to try out most of the other public baths and it was fun. The bar area was great and the pours were generous. Service was also great. However, the dinner was terrible. There wasn't a single item that I enjoyed. Very disappointing. Breakfast was...
