It may be brand new, but Hakone Kowakien Ten-yu – with its irresistible onsens and elegant design – effortlessly encapsulates the tranquil Japanese ryokan; with a modern twist.

Hakone Kowakien Ten-yu manages to ooze contemporary refinement while bestowing each guest with exactly the sort of experiences you would seek while on holiday in Hakone; much of which has something to do with the enticing onsens here, including an infinity hot spring pool overlooking the forests and mountains beyond. 

About Hakone Kowakien Ten-yu

A sprawling resort, one which is a delight to call home for a few nights, Hakone Kowakien Ten-yu is dripping with sleek interiors that’ll make you want to linger longer. Polished finishes and mood lighting set the scene for a sophisticated stay, while the two onsens found on the fifth and sixth floors invite you to relax in their soothing waters; a must-do while in Hakone. One of these is laid out in an infinity-edge style with unbeatable mountain views, while the other is indoors and faces the green of the forest. Topping it all off is the hotel spa, and a platform outside for rejuvenating yoga sessions. The surrounding area is ripe for wellness, in fact, with walks to be had along the Chisuji Falls and Mount Sengen, as well as yet more onsens right next door to the hotel at Kowakien Yunessun; this watery wonderland even has baths of green tea, red wine and sake! If you’d rather drink your sake than wallow in it, hit the chic hotel bar for specialty cocktails, and keep fuelled up in the restaurant for beautifully presented Japanese fare.
