I love love the concept of walking around shoeless which is their policy that you take off your shoes once you step in the hotel and lock in the locker. It is so liberating, everyone walking ard with just socks (So be prepared to wear bring some nice socks) or walk ard sockless.... THey also provide yutaka for the guests... More

My first observation upon entering the room was the absence of a shower. Yup, there was only a toilet and wash basin. I thought maybe this place was hostel style and shower facilities were at the end of the hall. Only upon further enquiry did I discover I was expected to use the showers at the rooftop onsens which are... More

Excellent unexpected wonderful hotel. The English speaking staff is excellent. The atmosphere is Western/Japanese with a perfect blend of both worlds; make sure you get the breakfast and dinner package. Do book this hotel!

Our night included dinner and breakfast and we were very happy with the buffet. Western and Japanese food. Staff very polite. Had a private onsen for only 1,000 yen Accommodation really clean...

This was the most we spent on accomodation during our trip, and we weren't dissapointed. We booked a traditional japanese style room with private outdoor onsen bath and it was lovely. The food, service and location were all oitstanding and we wished we had booked more time there in hindsight. We would definitely stay here again!

Ryokan tenseien We stayed at this ryokan for 2 days in the village of hakonen. Everyone stays at this village for the easy access to lake Ashi from where you can see Mount Fuji on a clear day. The hotel has hot water springs (we didn't try). We also had normal beds instead of the usual futons. The bathroom was... More

What a fantastic place, in a wonderful area, with fabulous staff and amazing scenery. We absolutely loved it here and would love to come back to explore some more. You'll be given a yakuta (light kimono) upon check-in to wear everywhere in the ryokan, along with your socks, which to me was a huge plus. No wasting time worrying about... More

We had a great time staying here. Booked the traditional room with 2 meals. We had to leave before their breakfast opened and they were very accommodating and prepared bento boxes for us to take with us when we let then know the night before. There is a small shuttle bus that charges 100 yen from train station to take... More

Really a very nice hotel, though it is not a traditional ryokan experience. Location is a bit of a walk from town (definitely NOT walkable with heavy bags as I did). Take the 100 yen shuttle, not the public bus (I made a mistake). The shuttle drops you off right outside and it's a 100m walk to front door. CONS... More
