Wonderful place
This was an amazing place. I wish there had been more nights available when we originally booked. We would have definitely stayed longer. The food was amazing and the staff was too.

This is the best ryokan in hakone. Food is great, hospitality lvl 10/10 and very clean rooms. A true blue ryokan experience. I love the private onsen which is 24 hrs accessible after 10pm.

Great location, amazing service and wonderful food
Overall, this place was wonderful. They were very mindful of cleanliness and service, especially in the midst of reopening with the recent COVID count decrease in Japan. Pros: - Location was amazing. Just a 3 min walk from Gora station if you walk thru the tunnel at the station. It has stairs so might be harder if you have a stroller or heavy luggage, but it will save you 10+ mins instead of walking around. - Food was off the charts, especially the last night of the stay. They set us up in a large tatami room for our family (each group had their own room for breakfast and dinner). We had fresh fish, cooked fish, beef, chicken, crabs, lobster, stew, and on and on. It was waaay too much for us to finish and so good. Kids were happy with their food too (usual okosama stuff like ebi-fry, etc). Could not change times (8am for brekkie and 6pm for dinner) but not much to do in Hakone after 6pm anyways. No baby food though so you would have to prepare yourself. - Onsen: they have a normal onsen that allows day visitors, as well as you can sign up for 40min sessions in the private baths if you stay. Very clean and very nice private, outdoor onsen for you and your group. - Service: Catered to all of our needs. Sheets changed, extra towels, food allergies, etc. Rooms were a bit older but very well kept, updated and clean. Our room had futons which they lay out and put away while you're eating. Overall a great find. Our 5 year old cried because she didn't want to leave.

Fantastic experience. I felt like a guest in someone’s home; I arrived early and the caretaker was nice enough to hold my luggage while I explored the town. Not to mention the private hotspring and it’s night time view of the illuminated mountain-side. Truly amazing!

Traditional experience with modern amenities
Spacious, traditional rooms with futons laid out on tatami, and actual paper shoji screens separating rooms. Quite comfortable if one is used to sleeping on a lowered surface, but may prove an issue for mobility impaired guests. In the same vein, accessibility is extremely limited - guest rooms are accessible via stairs, ditto for the dining hall. Guests with mobility issues may need to look elsewhere. Dining is kaiseki-style in the evenings, and breakfasts also have quite the spread, with excellent variety and competent preparation. Finally, the inn is located extremely close to Gora train station, and I'd like to inform all potential guests that there is an underpass right next to the station exit, running under the cable line line, that allows commuters to get to said inn much quicker than my rather more circuitous route around the station. Dragging a suitcase around really makes traversing mountain roads a lot more arduous than usual, so please take this shortcut.
