My Japanese friend took me to Sounkaku in the Hakone area for a night and it was really a treat. Located beautifully high up on the hills at the end of the cable car, this traditional Japanese Onsen hotel is really luxurious and comfortable. We were warmy greeted with a cup of Matcha tea in the lobby and then lead to our spacious tatami room overlooking a small garden with a pond. The room was serene and beautiful and came with separate bathroom and toilet and amenities like tea set, mini bar, a bath amenity set, yukata robe, socks and a bag with a Japanese bath towel.

In the evening we enjoyed the beautifully laid out indoor and outdoor communal Onsen baths (gender separated, so you bathe in the nude) first in the hotel and then after dinner also in the neighboring hotel, where you can use the Onsen for free. The hot thermal water was pure pleasure! The next morning we went to the hotel's own Onsen bath once more, as every day they switch which area is designated to the men and women. Both areas of Sounkaku and also the one of the other hotel were really nice and clean and the water from their own spring really great for the skin.

The food at the hotel was exceptional. The kitchen is run by a renowned chef from Kyoto, who prepares Kansai Kaiseki cuisine, so Japanese fine dining from the Kyoto region. Both dinner and breakfast were a stunning multi-course delight, during my whole Japan trip I've never had anything quite like it. Not only the food itself, also the presentation and the service were marvellous.
