Stayed one night and we had very high expectations as this was the highlight of our Hong Kong/ south korea/ Japan tour, also by far the most expensive (+$750 2 people one night). However it did not live up to expectations. Besides the first person who checked us in the other staff members spoke almost non existent English, also the... More

I love this place! It’s definitely my favourite stay over my whole japan trip. Also my most expensive. The onsen has fabulous service. The lady that helped me was super sweet and nice even though we had to use broken English, and lots of sign language to communicate. The food is delicious and there’s soooo much of it. I had...

This is in reference to the review posted about 4 weeks prior to this one, I have checked with Mikawaya in March 2014 and they said they did not serve vegetarian/vegan meals, imagine my surprise to read a recent review for Dec 2014 saying Mikawaya went out of their way to serve vegetarian meals. Mikawaya has since confirmed that they... More

Having never been to a ryokan before, it is difficult to review this property. That said, here goes... Loved the experience overall...the room was two bath suite with a private onsen. The room had a lovely guest room where we took our meals and a sitting area overlooking the mountains. Also, we had western style beds. Oddly, the bathroom were... More

The Ryokan was run down, paint was peeling and it smelled musty in many areas. I could overlook these issues but could not overlook the rudeness of the staff upon our arrival. We traveled in a typhoon and we arrived friends were waiting to greet us. The staff insisted we be oriented to our room and pulled us away from... More

We stayed in the ryokan for a few days during the summer based on recommendations from friends. We found it to be an authentic and interesting experience. The hosts were superb and the actual house was great and located in the mountains of Hakone. You get to sit on the floor and sleep on futons on the floor and eat... More

We stayed here in June for a night in the fuga room and it was definitely one of the highlights of our trip. We loved this experience from the moment we arrived and were greeted by the staff to the moment we left. We had two very fussy eaters aged 9 and 13 with us and they really enjoyed the... More

I went with my mom and stayed for 2 nights and 3 days, which was our best vacation ever. Staffs were absolutely wonderful. The one who was in charge of our room, including serving the meals, spoke good English, more than functional to make a delightful stay. The rest of the staff, especially the elders didn't seem to speak as... More

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!...
