Would thoroughly recommend this place. Gardens and baths are beautiful. Whilst it is very expensive the meals were amazing with very friendly service. The Hakone areas is great and definitely visit the open air museum near by which has fantastic sculptures.

We must have had the worst room in the place. It was dingy, damp, with mould round the walls of the bathroom and damp patches on the walls. The approach to the room itself was down a long dark concrete passage past drains and peeling walls. The view from our room was over plastic sheeting covering other passages. I am... More

First the good points. Everyone who works here is fantastic; friendly and eager to help. The lovely lady who looked after us, Hansa, couldn't have been better and the food was sublime. To my mind, however, authentic doesn't have to mean shabby. We paid £300 a night to stay here and, at that money, you do expect a certain level... More

Amazing Japanese inn with its own outdoor onsen and fabulous food. Only three minutes walk from the station too. Wear your kimono and get served a ten course meal. Be prepared to sleep on a futon which isn't erected until after dinner and to have your privacy continually interrupted by your attentive service! Hakone is a great little area to... More

I would say it's a must do, and the only reason I did not give it a 5 star, it that the rooms are a little run down and need some renovation. The food is authentic Japanese haute cuisine, and might stretch your boundaries a bit. You need to go with an open mind about the food or really don't... More

We decided to splurge on this Ryokan, and loved it. Very interesting experience. A few things we decided: - it's important to be on time, or early. We felt it was a bit rushed for us to get settled. Through random course of events during the day, we arrived 15 minutes before the 5pm cut off. It was enough time,... More

One of the highlights of our trip. Yes, the rooms are a little dated but this really doesn't detract from the experience of staying in a traditional in. We were in one of the outer rooms, with our own hallway and indoor onsen. The food was amazing- ten courses for dinner and eight for breakfast. Having your own personal room... More

Stayed here for 1 night. Came from Osaka so all up it took us around 3-4 hours to get here. We arrived 7pm at night, by the time we checked in and all it was around 8pm. Rooms were huge and very spacious. It was very clean, as you would expect in a Japanese Ryokan. We were served a delicious... More

I went there with 8 membsers of my family at the end of December, 2013. It's real old Japanese house with annexes. As it was not built for the inn, but for the second house for the family of Japanese old financial group, you can experience the atmosphere of traditional way of living in the olden time. One thing I... More

A wonderful ryokan. Great food and exceptional service. If you want to get away from it all, this is a place to come to. The service is truly exceptional. And I emphasise this again. You will be hard pressed to find a better set of staff, professional and engaging. The premises are dated, but clean and functional. Be reminded that... More
