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

My first time in Japan and staying in a ryokan was one of the highlights. The moment i stepped in, I was wowed by how traditional looking this place was. From the wooden flooring and pillars to how 'old' the place looked, I felt this was as authentic as it gets. I was brimming with excitement as I removed my... More

My husband and I stayed here for two nights in Feb 2015. It was truly an amazing experience. In fact, the weather was so awful in Hakone that this ryokan stay was the best part of our 2 1/2 days there. To get there, get off the main Hakone-Yumoto train station, take a right and walk about 15 minutes up... More

There are 3 things that I would like to try while in the Hakone : stay at ryokan (japanese traditional room), eating keiseki (multi course japanese traditional dinner), and bath at onsen (hot spring bath). Ichinoyu Honkan offers a really good price for all that 3 things, comparing to other ryokan. And with the fact, that they already started the... More

I have always wanted to try 3 authentic Japanese experiences - a hot spring bath (onsen) in the nude, staying in a traditional inn (ryokan) and have a traditional multi-course dinner (kaiseki). Budget was a factor and I found one I considered good value at around 12,000 yen per head at Ichinoyu Honkan in Hakone. The ryokan did not disappoint.... More

i guess the expectations were high, the bedsheets n blankets were not fresh. The onsen was average, my room has its own onsen however outsiders can see inside (opposite the room) . The food is good. The sleeping conditions need to improve. The location is good
