Favorite Part of our Japan Vacation

Review of Rikyuan
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 8 Feb 2020
This was the most unique part of our 2-week Japan vacation. Hakone National Park was beautiful, and Rikyuan was wonderful. The staff was so friendly and their attention to detail made this experience perfect. We wore kimonos and slippers all around the hotel (which is fairly small, allowing for a really personal experience). The dinner was fabulous, it was so many unique, delicious, and fresh dishes. It was served to us into our room, course by course. This was my first time visiting an onsen, and we got to try both the public and private ones (which you just have to write your name down to reserve a time slot). This was a great experience. Breakfast was in a common dining room, and was such a treat! Also so many little dishes in beautiful pottery. I had read other reviews about smoky smells, which I didn’t have a problem with even though I am usually sensitive to that.

We stayed 2 nights and had a great time. The food was fantastic and the onsen were nice. Decent location for catching a bus to other parts of hakone. The staff were friendly and had very good english. We would return to Rikyuan again.

We spent one night here and opted for the full Ryokan experience with a private onsen. It was very relaxing, especially after all of the miles we put on our legs touring Japan. The private onsen was clean and relaxing to use. The dinner and breakfast were all traditional and a great experience to try some traditional cuisine we otherwise would not have ordered on our own. Getting here was a bit challenging due to some buses and trains not running when we went (Dec 2019) but that was due to storm damage. The person who looked after us (the Nepalese woman, sorry forgot her name!) was wonderful and took great care of us.

Service was the best I ever had, I can t rememberer the name of the young man looking after us but he was the kindest person ever. We fell very welcome from the 1st minute. The Ryokan is beautiful, exactly what I hoped for, not one of those multi floors Ryokan with elevator. This is a traditional house, with a few rooms, decoration is top notch. Rooms are beautiful and the room outdoor onsen outside is amazing. The private onsen is definitely worth trying, georgeous feel ! Honestly after our cold day walking around Hakone everything fell amazing and special. Breakfast was actually good and big, however we were a bit disappointed on the dinner. Beware that they serve healthy meals based on the Monks diet, no meat, raw fish only and veggies. For our taste and overall cost we expected to be blown away with flavours which wasn't the case (maybe 2-3 dish were great in flavours out of the 11). I m sure some would love the simplicity but we did another cheaper Ryokan in our trip where the food was seriously outstanding and impressive in terms of richness of flavours. If food for you is a major criteria of the experience you might want to try somewhere else but for the rest it has been the best experience / service I had in my life. Oh and the futons are great, I slept so so well

Room tip: outdoor onsen is a must have

Accessible to tourists 2 minutes from bus stop. Clean rooms. Loved the private onsen. If you have time try the round one that you have to reserve for. It has a different vibe. Very polite Nakai. Chef was accomodating as well and asked us about how the food was. It was delicious. It really was filling even with small portions. Feels really private. Overall good experience.

My partner and I were after a traditional ryokan experience to relax after a week spent in Tokyo. We’re so glad we found Rikyuan. From the moment we arrived the staff went above and beyond to make out stay memorable.

We booked a room with a private onsen and being able to relax in this at the end of the day was blissful. The traditional style beds were very comfortable but the highlight was the food. Dinner was served in our room and breakfast in the dining room with a huge array of delish dishes.

The bus stop was a two minute walk around the corner and this gave us easy access to the sights around Hakone.

We only wish we could have stayed longer.
