Everything about this stay was perfect! Once arriving at Gora, we were picked up in minutes and whisked to our escape at the ryokan. Upon arrival, they took our shoes and bag up to the room as we filed the paperwork to stay. Whole we waited they provided us small treats and tea. They even took our photo (later at... More

A most wonderful escape from the long and windy drive from Tokyo. The place is wonderfully decorated in lots of wood and beautifully retro pieces of furniture. Service was excellent! The outdoor balcony with an onsen was lovely. Food cannot be faulted. Only one minor complaint. Wifi was not stable in our room 113. Perhaps it's too far away in... More

After celebrating the new year in the chaos of a huge city like Tokyo we decided to head to Hakone for 2 nights, looking for a a relaxing place in a natural setting. Gora Hanaougi was the perfect choice! Getting there from Tokyo is quite an adventure but it worth every minute spent in trains. Located just a few minutes... More

Gora Hanaougi is a very traditional onsen lodge (Ryokan) which provides extremely comfortable room (some with in-room open air onsen) and excellent food. Service is wonderfully good. The location is very convenient - located just a few steps away from the tram/cable car station. It is about 10 mins away from Gora (a town with more restaurants and the Gora... More

We had the pleasure of a 2 night stay here to start our honeymoon. The location is slightly isolated away from the main towns which for us, was a good thing. This meant a peaceful setting for us to relax and unwind. We had booked a package with breakfast and dinner provided in the tatami dining room, and were lucky... More

Peaceful atmosphere , loved the hot bath on the balcony of our room, outstanding service, especially the young lady who looked after us, wonderful massage at the spa. Great location to attractions. The food was excellent quality. However, you need to keep an open mind as it is very different from western food. We did order a western breakfast and... More

Arrived in the pouring rain to an extremely warm welcome. Shown to our room which was lovely with its own balcony area overlooking the woods. Our own onsen bath was on the balcony area with a shower area between the two (It's de rigeur to take a shower before an onsen). No time was lost in getting in the onsen... More

I honestly cannot praise this ryokan high enough, it was a perfect stay. As soon as we arrived we were escorted inside and into the waiting area where we were served tea and Japanese sweets as they checked us in. The atmosphere of this ryokan is magical, the smell of the wood and the ambiance is unforgettable. You cannot help... More

This Hotel is very nice and has the real friendly japanese style. Perfect rooms with an own hot spring pool and nice view to the valleys and mountains. The sleeping quality on the futons on the floor is perfect. Absolutely perfect is also the dinner with about 10 courses and variations of all japanese food.
