I was a bit apprehensive with the dinner and breakfast as my son and husband had dietary requirements but they catered to our food requests. The multi course dinner and breakfast was excellent. In our multi course dinner, there was sashimi, crab, and sukiyaki. We were stuffed

Most fantastic stay in this small family owned ryokan. Very easy access from station. The ryokan website clearly outlines the direction. It is quiet, clean, peaceful and an ideal place to remove all stress from the body and mind. The staff speaks several languages which is a

This was a memorable stay in Hakone. The Ryokan is well-appointed, the rooms are spacious and clean, and the view from the room is great! The location was great for us -- it allowed us to explore the phenomenal Hakone outdoor museum on foot on the evening of our arrival and

My husband and I stayed here for our last night in Japan, and it was so lovely! After coming from hectic Tokyo, Lalaca was peaceful and quiet. We arrived about 1pm, and knowing it was too early to check in, we left our bags with no problem and went off to explore the region by

Yes the private onsen is an open air bath. There is a view but it's not fantastic and you have to get out of the onsen to catch the view since they have to build a screen between the onsen and the exterior. It does not come with a view like that of an infinity pool.

30 minutes is enough for most guests. Your best bet will be to ask the owner upon check-in or if you do not mind, take a later slot so if there is no one else using, you can continue beyond the half hour.

We didn’t have JR passes but the best way for us would be to take the train from Shinjuku to Odawara, transfer to the local train to Hakone Yumoto followed by a transfer to the tram from there to Gora. In all, it takes around 2-2.5 hours. I would highly recommend the Hakone free pass which covers the leg from Shinjuku to Lalaca and back . Just remember to flash the station masters your passes when you are entering.

How do we get to your onsen from shinjuku train station?
"Go for the Japanese style room."
"Great views from the second floor Book the private onsen when you check in"
"Wifi didn't reach to rooms, but for us wifi in Lobby was good enough."
"If you want a private 'shower/bath, ask for the Western-Japanese room, but definitely indicate that you would like to sleep on a tatami mat. Don't miss out on dinner and breakfast. You can reserve directly with the hotel via email. They only accept cash, however you can pay the full total beforehand, using a credit card - very easy if you don't carry a lot of cash! I had room 301, big with a great view and very quiet."
"Room 301 has twin beds and its own shower but it is a traditional Japanese shower, secondary to the small bath."
$272 - $644 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
