This is a great hotel ! I discovered this place on my third day in Japan, and on a short trip (5 days) from Tokyo to Kyoto I have to say that this place is the one I liked the most. The hot springs are amazing too, you definitely have to test this. By the way, I was able to... More

We stayed at Tenseien based on favorable comments It turn out to be a bit of disappointment. We stayed for one night in a Japanese-western room with private bathroom. The room is clean and quite large. It has modern facilities including a PC in room although the mouse is not usable. One big plus is the free wifi which is... More

Location: Easy access. Just get off at Harkone main station, and either walk 15-20mins or take minibus (100yen/person). Room: We stayed in a Jap Style room with Private Hot Spring at the balcony. The room is big, with 2 toilets. It looks like the room is for family. Hotspring: The hot spring is big enough for a couple and is... More

We loved the beautiful surroundings and the breakfast spread! The Kaiseki dinner was nothing to shout about (we had better Kaiseki dinners in a ryokan in Kyoto). If you are looking for a ryokan experience, Tenseien is not the place.

This was our best experience in Japanese hotels during our 19 days trip in Japan. May be this was because we were traveling in a group of 12, for a couple may be it is easier to find a small traditional ryokan, if you want more intimate atmosphere, but for our group this Tensein was just perfect! As already mentioned,... More

To be fair to this hotel (i wont call it ryokan because it doesnt feel like it), i visited a very pretty and excellent service ryokan in kawaguchiko (mt fuji) before i came. Naturally, expectations will be higher as a standard has been set. Pros: 1) hotel surroundings are very pretty and zen. There's a temple, river, waterfall all surrounding... More

Stayed for one night. Was completely blown away. Location - it's situated in the town of Hakone-Yumoto, which in my opinion, is the best place to stay in Hakone as it is bustling with quaint shops offering lots of Hakone tidbits, souvenirs and restaurants. Just a 5 min shuttle bus (Take ryokan shuttle bus A when you exit the station,... More

This property was easily my favourite from our recent trip to Japan with our children. From the moment we arrived in this lovely town, to check in and opening our door to our western/ Japanese room, I knew we were in for a special time. We had several baths including a family spa which was fun and the surrounding views... More

We were on a week long group tour of Japan and this was not supposed to be one of our hotels en route. However a booking gone wrong meant that we ended up here and we were so lucky. It is everything you would hope for in a relaxing retreat. The all-you-can eat buffet served for dinner and breakfast was... More
