We booked two nights and found out time ruined by torrential rain (no one's fault obviously).
Had we tried to use the Hakone pass we had bought in Tokyo it would have been a challenge as the boat and rope car from beside the hotel were not included and neither were most of the buses that went by the hotel. If you stay at this hotel don't bother with the pass and pay as you go.
The rooms are large and very comfortable. The Japanese bath house is delightful.
Eating at the hotel is VERY expensive but good quality. They appeared annoyed that we did not book for dinner and kept has waiting for nearly half an hour to get a table in a half full donning room.
Watch out if you want to eat late. We went to bed hungry as we triedto eat at 8.30pm one night!
