What a lovely experience. The staff couldn't be more helpful. Our room had its own onsen on the balcony with outdoor shower with great views of the mountains. We had a western toilet though. We were worried about sleeping on the floor but found the futons very comfortable. The food presentation amazing and as we are not very keen on... More

We had high expectations. The location was not perfect with the road very close to the hotel and the hot springs placed without a view. There are probably much better alternatives. The japanese food though was great and well presented. The room was clean and the people very nice. We hiked to a nearby mountain and crossed a waterfall -... More

The writer has had a stay at a ryokan on the bucket list - finally the dream realised. I was treated so well, the Ryokan itself just amazing; the food even more so. Kano-San looked after me like a princess, as did the staff. This is a must do experience for anyone. Taking the Shinkansen from Tokyo to Odawara Station... More

I was a bit worried because of some negative reviews, but our family's stay in this ryokan was just lovely all the way through. We were amazed from the moment we arrived because it just looked like a place from a picture book. The building and its surroundings are so beautiful. The service was great; the room was clean and...

It was a great experience to stay in this Ryokan! The private open hot bath is just outside the house. We could see stars and the moon on the sky while enjoying the hot bath at night! The dinner and breakfast in room was great too!

A real highlight of our Japan trip, this was a mid-trip treat for us. We stayed at Mikayawa Ryokan for 2 nights at the Tsutsuji building and it was gorgeous. Complete with separate living room, bedroom, showroom, bathroom and private outdoor onsen. This was brilliant as sporting a few very visible tattoos, was concerned about public onsens. We had breakfast... More

Brilliant and very different experience with my Japanese wife; I'm South African. I was blown away by the very warm welcome; 4 of the employees were lined up and gave us a bow as we entered the ryokan! We both enjoyed the food and especially the shared bathroom, just for the experience, even though we had our own bathroom. Can't... More

We stayed in the 'Sakura' Japanese style villa on the mid April rainy days. The temperature dropped down to almost freezing, and we were surrounded by mist. The fresh fragrance of forest made onsen in the open air a refreshing one. Dinner and breakfast were great and in the same standard as other luxury ryokans. Room was nice and clean,... More

If you want to stay in a traditional Japanese ryokan and experience a traditional kaiseki meal, then this is the place to book! The location was an easy ride from the Hakone train station (from Shinjuku on the Romancecar) and then direct on the H line bus. The facility may be older, but it has modern amenities and really strives... More
