We took the train from Tokyo. The trip there was a fun adventure in itself. First the local mountain train with its switchbacks, then the cable car. We walked up the hill on the wrong side of the cable car tracks first so we were happy to get to our room. The room was not fancy but authentic with its... More

Kiritani Hakoneso is located a little up the mountain from Gora, but easily accessible by the cable-railway running from Gora Station, which connects to the ropeway a bit further up the mountain. Having gotten on the wrong train from Tokyo, we arrived a bit later than the latest check-in time, and fretted for our dinner. However, the personal at Kiritani... More

We were planning trip to Japan for 10 days and were debating whether to stay in Ryokan for a day. M glad we took this decision and stayed at Kiritani for a day. We are Indians and thought we wud have difficulty in conversing with the staff there. . But luckily we met Mr.Odawa and another lady there who understood... More

We bought this stay in a packaged online deal. The price is a little on the high side but the overall experience is superb. I've always have shoulder pain. The Onsen definitely fixed me up. It was so comfortable... I was totally recharged after every Onsen. Sometimes me and my wife would dip in the private Onsen. The open-air Onsen... More

Location - It was a bit confused to get here. Suggest to print a local map for the direction to the hotel from Koenkami Station. The area is very safe, residential area that you can walk around with their yukata, making you feel a local and tourist at the same time. It took us about 2.5 hrs from Yokohama station.... More

Downtown Tokyo price for poor accommodation. The Ryokan was hard to find and the staff seems confused by our arrival. The room and corridors smelt musty/smokey and very, very run down. Dinner was ok but the racket from the upper floors and the train make sleep difficult. The private onsen was another 3000 yen and you have to walk down... More

We've chosen this Ryokan for its good price-value-balance compared to other hotels in Hakone and for the good location. The main building we stayed in was a bit run-down but ok. The annex seemed more modern. The food was really excellent (breakfast and dinner). The room was large and comfortable. Unfortunately we didn't have a nice view though. The private... More

From the moment we walked up the hill to Kiritani Hakoneso, we felt welcome. It started when the proprietess came out and helped us drag our heavy bags up the rest of the way to the hotel then delivered them upstairs to our second floor room. The place is a bit dated, but it was very comfortable and we had... More

I stayed a night here as it was the splurge for my Japan trip. It was easy enough to find - once you get out of the right side of the tram/cable car at Koen-Kami (from Gora station), you go down the stairs, turn right at the road, walk up the hill till you see the red sign on the... More
