The hotel is very quiet and peaceful. We selected a Japanese style room, so had tatami mat floors, low tables, and slept on a futon on the floor. It was quite an experience! Our room had a hot springs tub that opened to the outside. It was wonderful to soak after spending the day walking. Note that the shower also... More

We stayed here for my husbands 30th with another couple. The place is amazing!!! The level of service at Gora Hanaougi is exceptional! Every detail is taken care of. The breakfast and dinner provided were very nice, but we kind of sick of it after the second day. Tip: If catching a train here from Tokyo - Get off at... More

I really hadn't researched this Ryokan (leaving the planning to our travel agent) so when my wife and I arrived, we were just blown away. It is an amazing luxury experience. Two highlights stay with me. Our assistant who showed us to our room, and served us at breakfast and dinner was completely charming. She was someone who we have... More

We just returned from Hakone and stayed 2 nights in Gora Hanaougi. It was an incredible amazing time. We had the standard room with the outdoor tub and shower. The room was a marvel of great, design, classic Japanese decor and technology highlights such as soft dimming lights and a top of the line Neorest Toilet. The staff are incredible.... More

This Ryokan is highly recommendable! We came here at the beginning of our Japan trip and we definitively would come back. Travel from Tokyo is quite easy, also for "beginners" and when you arrive by public Transport in Gora, the Hotel will pick you up. 3 minutes later, you are in a different world!!! Modern Equipment, but also very cosy... More

This was our first visit to a ryokan on our first visit to Japan. After 5 days in Tokyo this was a welcome change from the city. Took a while to get here but it's an adventure and worth it. The ryokan is right next to the station at Sounzan and there is an elevator which takes you down to... More

We stayed one night in April. We departed from Hiroshima to Gora Hanaougi. It required 2 bullet trains and two local trains and a tram to get to the hotel (we could have been picked up by the hotel but we took the tram up, just so we could experience it. When we checked out the next morning, we took... More

A great place to stay for a night or two. Fast pick up at the train station, smooth check-in, room with view AND private onsen (for those who don't want to go public), amazing dinner in private dining room, same for breakfast.

We were assigned a young lady who acted as interpreter and waitress and she was utterly delightful. The spectacular meals were truly impressive and the sushi was some of the absolute finest I have ever had. The chef went out of his way to accommodate us. The reason I did not give it the highest rating is that some of... More
