Enjoy authentic yoga sessions overlooked by trees, hike through the surrounding mountains, or learn more at the area’s spectacular museums. Vibrant and captivating Tokyo is also just a couple of hours away.

A feeling of relaxation envelops the entire property, highlighted in the open-air onsen; an infinity hot spring features on the hotel’s sixth floor, overlooked by a striking waterfall. Meanwhile, the hotel’s spa is reminiscent of an old Japanese house, surrounded by gardens and offering a menu of indulgent treatments using premium national products.

Japanese cuisine is renowned around the world for its incredible flavour and individuality, and Hakone Kowakien Ten-yu is no different! Using fresh, seasonal ingredients, the ever-changing menu reflects Japan’s famed culinary heritage, serving both traditional and more innovative dishes in artful displays.

Tastefully decorated, luxuriously furnished and impressively sized, Hakone Kowakien Ten-yu’s rooms mix modern design with traditional Japanese touches, such as the beautiful open-air baths made from Shigaraki pottery, and tatami flooring.
