Beautiful secluded family owned Ryokan in a forest environment high above the hills of Hakone that offers great value for money. Huge, traditional tatami-rooms with private indoor and outdoor baths. Also each room contain one of those big massage chair (the one you usually have to pay for)! It does lessen the traditional atmosphere, but they are fun and painful to experiment with. The food, dinner and breakfast is delicious, beautiful presented and served in the room.
The lobby is not very appealing, but you won't stay there anyway. Also the elderly owners, especially the wife, seem a bit overworked. Like the running the ryokan is too much work now. We felt bad letting her carry all those bowls of food and making the bed. But this is something you see more and more in Japan since there are not many young people to take over ryokans.
Overall a great experience.
We took a taxi from the art museum, but the ryokan is also easy to reach with the bus which stops... More
