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...

We booked our stay for one night as we wanted to experiance the ryokon, and go somewhere that had baths. Our room was ok... but exteemly outdaed and smalled really strongly of mold. The baths are also outdated. Because there is only one bath that is unisex that you can reserve privately it is hard to enjoy the baths with...

We stayed for one night (thank goodness) - we loved Hakone and all it had to offer! The welcome was lovely, very warm young lady who showed us to our room... Room 101..... Smelt hideous, I don't know how to describe it just horrible. The room was ok... It was a mostly bare room with two nice places to sit,...

My husband and I booked two nights in this Ryokan as part of our honeymoon however only ended up staying one.... We were really looking forward to the Kaiseki meals however it was almost inedible towards the end, food was overcooked and there were some interesting (weird) flavour combinations such as salmon with pancetta and mash potato that was really...

Our attendant was a young Chinese fellow who was excellent! Attention to every detail - excellent service and wonderful meals! The in room hot spring was very nice as was the ability to use the public springs which you could reserve in the evenings privately. Nice peaceful location only a 2 minute ride from the train station. It was raining...
