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...

We wanted to experience a Ryokan, contrasting with the hustle and bustle of Tokyo and Kyoto and where better than one in beautiful Hakone with an onsen fed by natural spring water! This was the expensive and indulgent part of the trip - and one of the most memorable. We felt completely relaxed in the first 10 minutes, loved the...

We had a great stay at Yamo No Chaya. I don't eat fish and communicated this to the staff ahead of time and they were incredibly accommodating! They provided me with a great, delicious and varied dinner (pork, chicken, steak!) the first night an an even more delicious steak the second night. They also provided us with western breakfast. We...

This was a once in a lifetime experience. This Ryokan/Onsen was a day of absolute luxury built around ancient hot baths bubbling out of mountain rocks. Perfect place for R&R after three days of sightseeing in Tokyo. Our room was beautiful and traditionally Japanese, with a balcony overlooking a rugged, rocky, forested landscape. Dinner was an absolute event. Course after...
