Great place for a traditional ryokan experience. Staff was very friendly even though I could only speak English and helped me navigate around town. Food was delicious, especially the breakfast, and river side location is pretty spectacular.

We asked a Japanese friend to help us find a place in Hakone that felt like a genuine Japanese experience... but not overly uncomfortable to Westerners. Having been to the area before I knew there were some places where it would be quite hard to be a foreigner with limited Japanese language skills and other places that were far from... More

This wasn't the cheapest or the most expensive ryokan I stayed in, but it was probably the best in relation to what I paid. The directions on Japanican website from hakone machi port are wrong. Food was really nice and the location is beautiful. The tap for our shower was enough for a shower, but probably would have been too... More

We stayed here for two nights and initially found it all very strange and different, but soon settled into the Japanese way of doing things! The ryokan is well located near a bus stop, but is quiet and peaceful save for the rushing river outside. Our room incorporated a private outdoor onsen which was definitely a bonus - being able...

I booked the small private onsen room, which is right next to the river. The room was spacious enough and well kept. The whole ryokan still has the old original feel to it and the restaurant at the 4th floor is very very nice with all the wood furniture and high ceiling. Staff are very friendly and knows good English.... More

This ryokan is simply outstanding. Located just down a short path from the Tonosawa mountain railway station, it sits on the main street (about 50m from a bus stop) right along the river. Some rooms have a beautiful river view. The ryokan is clean, well-kept, with fantastic customer service. The hotel has 2 public baths that switch daily between male/female... More

We stayed in this ryokan for two nights, it is a relatively busy place with most rooms booked especially around holidays. Looks like the clientele is from many places around the world. The price is quite reasonable with two meals included. We had pork pot for dinner and it was OK, although the portion is quite large and can easily... More

This hotel was great. It offered traditional Japanese rooms, hot springs, and excellent food. Recommend getting a room overlooking the stream as well as a private bath. Futon bedding was very comfortable.

My wife and I stayed here for 1 night in April 2015 and it was faultless - we stayed in one of the rooms with our own private onsen and it was spectacular - hot spring water in a covered outdoor onsen, right next to a loud crashing water fall - amazing The hotel also has the traditional meal in...

This was our first ryokans, and it was pleasant to be introduced to the concept. Rooms are nice and traditional, in room hot bath ( at least in our one) was great, and we also booked the public one for the 6 of us for an hour. Dinner and breakfast were very nice, staff is welcoming. Bit difficult to get... More
