Hakone is one of the most popular onsen resorts area in Japan. It is located in Kanagawa ken and you can go there almost within an hour by Shinkansen from Tokyo station. Here I made a list of best Ryokan (hotels) where you can enjoy perfect Onsen and food!
1. Hotel Nanpuso
Onsen in each room is like this. You can enjoy the natural landscape from there.
They prepare beds with Japanese traditional design although the floor is Tatami. The room is furnished in half Japanese and half Western style.
Address: 179 Yumotochaya, Hakone, Ashigarashimo District, Kanagawa 250-0312
The concept of this ryokan is the moon. They use yellow lights and decorations everywhere in the building which gives us warm atmosphere and feel welcomed.
Even they serve dinner with moon-shaped plates. The decorations are really beautiful and pretty.

3. Hakone Suimeisou
Look at this beautiful view from the room! During spring season, you can enjoy cherry blossom viewing from there.
Address: 702 Yumoto, Hakone, Kanawaga, Japan 250-0311
Sitting the seat, you can become one with the nature around and Lake Ashi. I’m sure you will have a great experience here, enjoying the view and refresh yourself.
Dinner is served putting six plates on the basket. The way they arrange the food is beautiful and it looks like a flower.

5. Hakone Yuryo
The round shaped bathtub makes you feel something different and special from other Onsen. There is a partition around, so you can enjoy it all by yourself not caring about others.
Have you grilled fishes like this? This is the traditional way of how Japanese people grill fishes at home. Not only eating the food, you can enjoy watching as it’s cooked and have an awesome experience.
