Traditional Japanese hospitality

Review of Bangakuro
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 18 Nov 2017
If you want to savor a hot spring experience in a traditional Japanese inn, I recommend this place. The main building dates back 160 years and has a nice rustic but expansive lobby. This is an intimate family run inn and I would guess that there can’t be more than forty rooms and the main building is designed in a way that most of the rooms are not adjacent to each other. It is very quiet. Our suite was large with both a tatami room and a second room with beds and a couch. A long veranda looked out into the woods of the large multi acre property. Two baths - one outdoors - offer relaxation and privacy
while enjoying the invigorating water. Added to the pleasure of our stay was in-suite dining with food that was quite above the quality I’ve had at other inns of this type, ten courses at dinner with innovative presentations of Japanese dishes including beef, pork, vegetables and seafood. Not inexpensive but good value for the product; very worthwhile if you are looking for an elegant and traditional Japanese experience.

Reviewed 26 April 2014

Beautiful secluded family owned Ryokan in a forest environment high above the hills of Hakone that offers great value for money. Huge, traditional tatami-rooms with private indoor and outdoor baths. Also each room contain one of those big massage chair (the one you usually have to pay for)! It does lessen the traditional atmosphere, but they are fun and painful to experiment with. The food, dinner and breakfast is delicious, beautiful presented and served in the room.

The lobby is not very appealing, but you won't stay there anyway. Also the elderly owners, especially the wife, seem a bit overworked. Like the running the ryokan is too much work now. We felt bad letting her carry all those bowls of food and making the bed. But this is something you see more and more in Japan since there are not many young people to take over ryokans.

Overall a great experience.

We took a taxi from the art museum, but the ryokan is also easy to reach with the bus which stops in front of the Ryokan.
