This has been on my bucket list for a long time and it certainly did not disappoint. I do agree with other reviews that the rooms could use a touch up. I also would have preferred maybe two mattresses because it was a bit hard. The style is beautiful and traditional Japanese simplicity. We had our own onsen so no... More

This turned out to be the highlight of our Japan trip for our two kids, ages 9 and 10. Greeting was very friendly and we weren't at all sure whether this place was going to be appropriate with kids. It isn't really, and we warned our kids that they had better behave because we adults wanted to try this place.... More

A stunning ryokan in the Hakone mountains - reachable by car, but if your luggage will allow then take the mountain rail for a far more interesting experience! The rooms could've done with a touch-up, but were still plush while retaining authenticity, with tatami flooring, sliding shōji doors, traditional futon beds, and the provision of yukata and geta sandals to...

Booked easily through tablet.com, arranged for hotel driver to pick us up at the train. Arrived early and did the Hakone circuit (Highlight of that tour was the sculpture garden, but the whole tour, though touristy, was worth doing.) Traditional exterior bizarrely looks faux Japanese, but the interior is a contemporary architectural zen palace. Our suite w/ mountain view was... More

An amazing peaceful Ryokan with great attentive staff and fantastic food. Our stay was a highlight of our recent tour of Japan. The Ryokan is at the foot of the cable car to the top of the mountain where enjoyed a stunning view of Mount Fuji. Put together this made for a most memorable stay.

That was my wife and I first visit to Hakone and our first stay in a Ryokan, so we didn’t know what to expect! Location: Hakone is a lovely and charming little town with lots of trees and greeneries. It felt so good to be there. To note that there are several museum worth visiting in Hakone, out of which... More

This this place is incredible...you even get your own butler who will serve you your traditional Japanese dinner and breakfast in your room. The onsen is spectacular and they have an indoor pool as well. The service is quite something and the food fantastic.

Our experience at Gora Kadan was simply incredible. The grounds were stunning, the rooms were beautiful, the food was excellent, and the service was impeccable. It's a luxurious, peaceful retreat in the middle of the mountains. The staff goes out of their way to make sure everything is perfect and you are taken care of. The traditional japanese meal they...

Definitely one of the top in Japan may be also in the world. This place is gorgeous, in all of terms. Hospitality, room, food, cafe, view, amenities, features.... A place where a celebrity is not a surprise to find. Whatever. You have a lot of thing to enjoy and tell more than tweeting you saw a celeb. Another point is... More
