I will be travelling to Japan with my wife this April and we have a night at Hakone between our trip from Tokyo to Kyoto/Osaka on 5-6 April and we are looking for an authentic experience of a japanese Ryokan. We dont mind if it is a bit westernized but essentially what we are looking for is a room with a private hot spring bath (open air would be great), kaiseki dinner and to be friendly to first timer westerners!!
Budget is around 300-350 eur for the night.
We are litteraly overwhelmed with all the options and we are looking for some suggestions if possible. We did find some rooms in Mizunoto and Hotel Okada but there are so much more and aince its one night only we want to do it right.
