Great way to acclimate to Japan!

Amazing, authentic Japanese onsen experience! The rooms and views were amazing, and the meals and service was excellent. Beautiful onsen and meals in Yakutas, what could be better? Note there are no western meal options so be prepared for a full Japanese breakfast. The hotel doesn’t make referrals but we used MK Taxi Limos to get us directly there from Haneda, which cost $350 but was really easy. We also used Aki from Coconut Hikes Japan for a private tour of the area. He picked us up from the hotel and did a great job taking us on a hike with Mt. Fuji views.

We stayed here over the weekend and it was literally the best hotel I’ve ever been in! The room was spacious and beautiful, with a private onsen and balcony facing the Japanese mountainside. There’s also only 15 rooms so everything is super intimate and private. The included dinner and breakfast were absolutely incredible — delicious and an experience. I would 100% recommend this place. We will stay here again if we’re back in hakone.

A wonderful resort for relax, the semi-open hot-spring with view right in your room is superb. Staff are friendly and helpful, the vegetarian-twist of recipe for dinner and breakfast are nice and it remains the sophistication of Japanese cuisine. The book choices in the library is nice too, nice art book and Japanese traditional craft and art theme make the resort extraordinary.

My family of 4 (with 2 kids aged 11 and 3) stayed there for 2 nights in December and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The resort's theme is art, and art works are featured in your room and around the resort. Every aspect of our stay from the welcome when u arrive, check in, dining, onsen, farewell etc were wonderful. All the staff i interacted with spoke English (pretty impressive for a resort in Japan) and they were very thoughtful and attentive. It is a small resort (<15 rooms ) so it doesn't feel crowded. We left feeling happy and refreshed. Shouldn't all holiday breaks be like that? I highly recommend this resort.

Wow what a place - simply stunning and very calming. We stayed for 2 nights and fully enjoyed our stay. Our room was fantastic and our private onsen was the best. The food was all Japanese and delicious - great way to try the local cuisine. The staff are all very kind and respectful. They all tried their best to speak to us in English. Wonderful place - would defo go back if I event get the chance and money!!
