Hakone Kowakien Ten-yu, Hakone

Get a taste of traditional Japanese hospitality, and serene natural landscapes, at Hakone Kowakien Ten-yu.

A modern take on the traditional ryokan inn with an enchanting mountain and forest setting. Hakone Kowakien Ten-yu promises you true tranquillity. Start your day early with yoga in the garden, or catch the sunrise from the stunning infinity-edge onsen. You can then venture out trekking along Chisuji Falls, pay a visit to the Hakone Open-Air Museum or enjoy a stroll through Hakone Gora Park. 

Upon your return, retreat to the privacy of your own open-air bath – a feature of every guestroom. The décor resembles that of a traditional ryokan, but with a contemporary touch. Expect traditional futons, low tables and tatami mats complimented by a neutral cream and brown palette. Beautifully prepared Kaiseki-style cuisine is presented daily at the restaurant.
