Since it gets dark in Japan as early as 5.30 pm we were in for an adventure trip to find this destination. Although this place is close to the railway station it was so dark that we struggled finding this location. Our disappointment baesd on the spooky trip to this place was soon replaced with joy once we entered this place. Its a beautiful onsen resort with a wonderful staff. The hospitality and facilities were both top notch. The rooms were cosy and the onsen bath amazing. Please make sure that you reserve a room with private onsen since public onsen might get a little crowded and uncomfortable . We were served a lavish spread of kaiseki dinner which was mostly non veg. When I said that I was a pure vegetarian the chef was kind enough to immediately cook-up some fine veg options which were very tasty. Please make sure that you inform the hotel staff well in advance about your food preferences so that they can prepare accordingly. We missed doing that however we were lucky that the chef had some veg stuff handy. The place is definitely worth a visit

Our stay at Tonosawa Ichinoyu Shinkan was perfect and the highlight of our trip to Japan. Everyone we encountered was so polite and helpful. We arrived in the pouring rain and had some difficulty finding the actual building, but all of the workers in the surrounding building helpful us locate the building. We were early and left to go sightsee, and when we arrived back to check in, our luggage had already been brought to our room. The dinner provided was HUGE and very delicious. Our room was large, clean, comfortable and the mineral bath in our room was the perfect temperature and so soothing after a long day in the rain. My one "negative" comment (which didn't detract from the overall experience at all but might be good for some to know) was that there was no shower in the room. The hotel was conveniently located by a train station, and despite what other reviews have mentioned, we didn't struggle getting our luggage up and down the hill (but we're both about 30 and in decently good shape. If you have any mobility concerns or a large amount of luggage, this may not be the case for you.) The morning of our departure, we left early and the staff were kind enough to let us in to breakfast about 15 minutes early so that we could eat before catching our train. Staying here was the highlight of our trip to Japan. If you're on the fence about booking, just do it!

This ryokan in Tonosawa Hakone is fantastic! Tonosawa is a beautiful little village, 5 minutes by taxi from the Yamuto station, and on the switchback train line to sights in Hakone, bus lines etc. The village itself is really nice to walk around, with a stream going through it. The Japanese room we had was very nice and comfortable, the onsen was fantastic (not private but I never met anyone there), and we had two dinners that were amazing!!! The breakfast buffet is also very nice. But the dinners were really the highlight, with a traditional many-course meal, everything was excellent and really good value. The staff were also very nice and helpful.

Delightful ryokan with friendly, helpful staff especially explaining how the traditional dinner was supposed to be prepared and eaten . The private' onsen' hot bath en suite was fabulous as well as the larger one available. Rooms are spacious and futons very comfortable. I stayed here Oct 22 and was delighted to be back.

Delightful ryokan in a peaceful wooded area with private open-air hot-spring baths and an indoor mineral hot spring (onsen). Tonosawa is a beautiful little village close to the Yamuto station and the ryokan a short taxi drive uphill. Dinner and breakfast is typical Japanese style and there are also Kimonos one can wear for a traditonal experience. Staff are friendly and very helpful. Definitely worth a visit.

This is quite a traditional ryokan. Dinner and breakfast was delicious and included typical rice, soup, pickles, salad, and protein (egg, fish, beef) miso and vegetable dishes. Also, traditional kimonos to wear, futons in rooms plus open air onsen. Most rooms had a private hot both as well whereas mine didn't. I had stayed here in 2018 so was delighted to be back however it is somewhat remote.

Ichinoyu Shinkan is the newest addition to the Ichinoyu chain. A very cosy place with hospitable staff. For 2 adults and 2 young children, we got a big room on the third level with high ceiling and an onsen bath in the balcony. The room was just like the one featured in the website. The bath was not big but could sit 2 adults and a kid (asian sized). Compared with other costly hotels with private onsen attached to a room, this one was definitely value for money. Need not pay a bomb for this wonderful experience.
The room was new, clean and spacious. The sink was a beautiful procelain with a tap that flowed warm water. There was no need to keep adjusting cold and hot water taps. The toilet seat was heated, like many in the country.
They do not provide shampoo or soap in the room, but could be found in the shared bath. Yukatas are provided for adults only.
For dinner, we ordered the cheaper set A, but was already very sumptous; authentic Jap cuisine different from standard Jap food found outside the country.
The hotel is a 20min uphill walk from Hakone-Yumoto station. So we took a taxi at the station and paid 660yen for a less than 5min ride to the hotel. Another option is to take the Tozan line from Yumoto station and alight at the next stop Tonozawa station. Just walk down a narrow but scenic path, 10min to the hotel.
Another tip. Outside Yumoto station, towards the taxi stand, there is a baggage delivery service where you can pay to have your luggage delivered to your hotel. You can then continue exploring Hakone from there. We paid 1000yen for 2 small luggages.

We stayed here for 2 nights as a family of 4 with 2 young children. All in all it was good for the price and a very good location for exploring the local area. It is perfect for a one or two night stay.

The rooms were clean and spacious with a separate toilet and small sink area. The kids loved the hot spring water bath on the balcony and whilst sitting it you could look up the mountains and into the trees...very relaxing. I have stayed in other Ryokan and the difference here was that I found the futons were not thick enough and a little uncomfortable. Two put together would have been better. As with all Japanese hotel rooms there were plenty of toiletries provided.

We used the communal baths a couple of times. They were clean and well set out. I felt very relaxed and my skin felt wonderful when I came out. The were also quiet which was good because my 7 year old girl was a little worried about not wearing any clothes! Be prepared! There is an indoor section and a smaller outdoor one. We did go outdoors but because of the time of year I was a little worried about being bitten...mosquitos seem to love me. The hair washing and body washing products were lovely. If I'm not mistaken they were made by Shiseido.

The staff were extremely helpful and spoke enough English to help us with what we needed. I don't believe people should complain about the level of English at such establishments when they are visiting another country. They should not have any expectations. The restaurant staff made a huge fuss of the children and were patient with them as they practised their new Japanese words. They took pictures for us and helped us with the menu. They gave us a very helpful English translation with a diagram of where the food was positioned on our plate. They made sure that we all had the right sized Yakuta as my husband and I are 6ft plus and even provided some for the kids. The shoes didn't quite fit though!

The traditional Japanese set meal was very interesting. My husband ate the lot but some was not quite to my palate. I didn't go hungry though as there was still plenty to eat. There were special kids meals too and the kids loved the sticky rice. There was a lovely steamed pork and cabbage dish which I could have had more of. On the second evening part of our meal was a beautiful fish cooked in miso which was very flavoursome.

In the reception area there is a small shop where you can buy reasonably priced gifts, snacks and soft drinks. I picked up a lovely wooden tissue box made in a traditional style to the area. There is also a reasonably priced vending machine with soft drinks and beer.

The hotel isn't far from Odawara station but we chose to get a taxi there and back. The taxi rank is right outside the station and it cost very little. We had our Hakone free pass and there is a station very close to the hotel through a lovely footpath surrounded by trees. The kids pretended they were in Spirited Away every time we walked along it. We saw a giant frog as we walked up it which fascinated the kids too. Odawara itself has lots of places to eat and lots of gift type shops.

The train from near the hotel took us to the ropeway and the cable car. We did a circular route ending on the boat across lake Ashi. A little disappointed that it was foggy and we didn't get to see Mount Fuji.

If you are getting the Shinkansen from Odawara station get there a little early as not all of the Shinkansen stop there and you get to see them speeding through the station as you sit on the platform. Have your camera ready though as they are hard to catch!

This hot spring ryokan is located about 800m up a steep hill from Hakone Yumoto station. The taxi fare from the station is about 730 yen. Be sure to take a taxi from Hakone Yumoto and not from Tonosawa which has a much smaller station and no taxis. If you end up at Tonosawa, the only way to get to the hotel is via a steep path uphill with many steps, which can be challenging with heavy luggage or bad weather.
Our room was 201, a corner room with extra windows at the side looking out to the hills. Most of the other rooms only have light coming from the screened balcony and skylight, so they might be a bit darker. We had a Japanese style room with tatami mats and futon beds which were reasonably comfortable. There is a sink and separate toilet but no separate shower in the room. The only bathing area in the room is next to the open air hot spring bath tub (rotenburo). Bath toiletries are supplied there, and a cold water tap and small wooden basin for you to mix the hot and cold water yourself to wash yourself. If you want a shower, you will have to use the public bath facility downstairs. We showered in the public bathroom because it was about 1 degree C outside. We then returned to our room to soak in our rotenburo. It was very invigorating.
Dinner featured a filling sesame miso hotpot and a few other dishes which were just right for the cold weather. It included a free flow of sake, beer, tea and carbonated plum and peach liqueur drinks for 90 minutes. Breakfast was Japanese and tasty too. Meals are taken in the dining room with picture window views of lush greenery outside.
From the hotel, you can take a 10 minute shortcut down the hill to Tonosawa station to start the Hakone loop. It took us about 4-4.5 hours (leaving out Hakone Machiko and the cedar walk because it was raining/snowing).
For those interested in going to the Gotemba Premium Outlets, there is a direct bus from Kami-Tonisawa bus stop, a 10 minute walk down the hillside. This is bus "L" which is included in the Hakone Freepass. We checked out before we headed out to Gotemba and the hotel kept our bags for us. When we returned, we got out at Hakone Yumoto, and caught a taxi to the hotel to collect our bags and back to the station to catch our train back to Tokyo. Cab fare was about 900 yen. Better than dragging your bags around with you or risking not being able to find a coin locker at the station.

I didn't know what to expect. At first glance. I was a little shocked. Keep in mind I just came from the downtown Tokyo. The staff was nice and gave us lots of info. Also told us when dinner and breakfast would be. I opened my room door and found a really clean room, a tv and a table with some authentic Japanese snacks. No spider webs or dust. Mind we're in the woods. Sort of. I had reserved a in room with a private hot spring ( well worth it) regular rooms need to share. The local store are only a 15 min walk away. The air is so fresh. So I would recommend the walk. A taxi ride from downtown only cost 730yans. I came back for dinner and it was amazing. There was so much to eat and such a variety. Thinking the end was ending. I decided to try the hot springs bath. It was a perfect combination with the fresh clean air. I fell asleep like a baby. Then breakfast was served the next day and it was just as good. The staff was just the best!! A great place to go to get away from all the inner city noise to relax. Highly recommended!! For those of you that are not familiar with this type of hotel. There's no couch or bars. It's a traditional Japanese type of hotel where they house you in a room and provide 2 meals. So you can relax and enjoy your quiet time. It's really relaxing. I never turned the tv on once.......

There is a shōtengai (shopping street) in front of Hakone-Yumoto station which is nearby the hotel and there are eateries along the stretch but I'm not sure what is the closing time.
