There are many famous hot springs in Japan such as Beppu Onsen, Arima Onsen, and Kusatsu Onsen. This time, we would like to introduce “Hakone Yumoto Onsen”.
1. What is Hakone?
Do you know Hakone? Hakone is a town located in the western part of Kanagawa prefecture.
Hakone can be reached from Shinjuku by train called Romance-car in about 1 hour and 30 minutes. I have visited it twice, and it is a recommended tourist destination that I will never get tired of.
2. What is the highlight of Hakone?
The highlight of Hakone is that there is a hot spring town where you can eat while walking!
You can eat manju and kamaboko, and there are many delicious foods such as hand-baked rice crackers, soft serve ice cream, and soba noodles!
3. What kind of hot springs are there in Hakone?
There are many hot springs such as day trip hot springs, footbaths, and open-air baths in Hakone, and you can enjoy various hot springs.
There is a private open-air bath at ‘Hakone Yuryo’, which has a free shuttle bus from Hakone Yumoto Station.
4. Recommended places in Hakone!
In addition to the hot spring town, we also recommend “Owakudani” and “Venetian Glass Museum” in Hakone!
You can reach Owakudani by ropeway. Owakudani is famous for its volcanic terrain and black boiled eggs.
Venetian Glass Forest is very beautiful with many works made of glass.
5. A recommended ryokan that I actually stayed at.
The inn I stayed at was ‘Hakone Yutowa’, which just opened in August 2019 in Gora.
There is a footbath and a bonfire in the courtyard to warm you up.
There was also a library lounge with lots of books and free drinks, and a play lounge where you could enjoy board games.
Hakone is a wonderful place. There are many delicious foods and many beautiful places. You can make wonderful memories with your family, friends, couples, and anyone else! Please come visit us in Hakone.
