Very convenient and beautiful location that is just next to the Yunessun waterpark property and bus lines. We were always greeted when we returned to the ryokan. Food was excellent and our hostess was wonderful! We had our own private rotenburo and the kids thoroughly enjoyed it; the boys did not want to leave when it was time to move... More

Ryokan staff were wonderful! Greeting us at the door, and helping us check-in. Staff in the day speaks some English. They even gave us a map and guide on how to best explore Hakone and be back on time for dinner!. Private onsen in the room is amazing! We had so many baths that our skin were smooth and soft!...

Prior to this, went to two other ryokans so in a good position to compare; out of the three, this is the pits! On arrival, the male attendants were extremely polite, we were well received until the maid came. Its likely she didn't like foreigners and there were definitely a lot of foreigners who visit there; her attitude was distinctly... More

We went there back in March 2010 but I still remember that this was an amazing first time ryokan experience complete with a beautiful kaiseki (traditional multi-course Japanese dinner) experience for dinner and breakfast. Service was great, our room was prepared for us and the futon was very comfortable. Our room also had a private open bath area and a... More

It was pouring rain and we had just walked almost a mile from the bus stop (don't trust the map on their website!) and were soaking wet. But once we made it to the front door, we were whisked in, dried off, and settled into our traditional tatami-mat room. The nice open balcony looked out on a mist-shrouded, low-mountain terrain...

We wanted to spend a couple of days in Hakone during our family holiday in Japan and were keen to stay the night in an authentic Japanese ryokan. Did lots of research before deciding upon the Mikawaya and am glad to say we chose well. Managed to get from the Sheraton Grande Tokyo Bay to Shinjuku station and then on... More

The Mikawaya was a great disappointment in many areas. To name a few: (1) Food. This was well below the standard of other ryokan that we have stayed at. Dishes that should have been served hot were served lukewarm or cold. Some dishes contained western elements (such as mayonnaise dressing) which neither seemed appropriate, nor tasted particularly good. It was... More

Great place to relax with a very serene setting, the room is very spacious and clean. Traditional on its outlook, but very well maintained. Access to transportation is not bad too. Although direct buses to most places do not stop just outside, but it is only 3 mins walk from Yunnessun, which has most of the buses going anywhere from... More

We stayed in Hana Room 1 - see their website/standard room/Japanese style room with open air bath(onsen). The room is on the ground floor and there is a running "pipe" which brings hot spring water into the onsen. Although the room does not have an attached shower/bath, there is a small shower area next to the onsen for you to... More
