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...

We had a really nice, relaxing time at Yamanochaya. The walk from town is about 20 mins and pleasant enough. (As others noted, it's mostly uphill so not great with large bags.) We arrived a few minutes before check in but had no issue - the staff was very welcoming and helpful. We used the baggage forwarding service at the...

We were recommended to give our trip an authentic Japanese element and I don't think we could have chosen better. This place is superb - crazy but superb none the less. Set on the side of a woody hill about an hour from Tokyo. The air is fresh and the river and local fauna & flora provides a great soundtrack...

On my first trip to Japan for 14 days, we decided to spend 3 days and 2 nights at a Ryokan, and we ended up booking a room with Yamanochaya. We booked the Tsukimidai Type C (Without in room onsen). We went on the 14th - 16th of November 2016. My wife and i had a really wonderful time at...

A must when visiting Japan. Access to Hakone by JR is not as complicated as it seems and worth the additional detour when travelling between the major cities. Next time, we would love to stay longer as we enjoyed the peacefulness and tranquillity of the premises and nature. Private onsen = worth evey Yen.

Yes, a traditional roykan with an onsen or a hot tub on the outside as we booked that slightly more expensive option (well worth it) - what more can one wish for? It was great to start the morning with a bath. Traditional quiet neighbourhood within walking distance (without bags) to the station. With bags take the little bus which...

This is a quintessential Ryokan in a lovely area. Very quiet, great service and relaxing. The rooms are nice with private outside showers and natural hot baths. Pretty special. The communal single sex hot baths are large, outdoors and very relaxing with natural hot springs flowing into the stone pool. The food is unusual, weird and you need to be...
