Hakone Pax Yoshino, Hakone

Excellent - £££


Explore the beautiful scenery of Hakone in a charming traditional-style ryokan inn.

Hakone Pax Yoshino is just a short stroll from Hakone Yumoto train station, nestled in an area known for its hot springs, beautiful alpine scenery and towering mountains – including of course the famous peak of Mount Fuji.

The ryokan-inspired hotel offers a taste of old Japan, with traditional touches such as tatami mat floors and complimentary yukata robes. You’ll feel yourself unwind almost instantly, thanks to a soothingly neutral colour palette and cosy lighting.

If you’re looking for an invigorating break away from the chaos of Japan’s big cities, this is the perfect place to stay. From Hakone Pax Yoshino, you can head out on hikes to explore the natural splendour of the area, then head back to soothe aching muscles in the hotel’s steaming indoor and outdoor hot spring baths.

In the evenings, tuck into an authentic Kaiseki multi-course banquet, before dancing the night away with drinks at Night Club Sharou. This unique hotel really does offer the complete package.


Rooms at Hakone Pax Yoshino are designed in a traditional Japanese-style, with tatami mats, low futon beds, sliding screens and floor-level seating. But you won’t miss out on any of the modern comforts you’re used to, as each spacious room comes with air-conditioning, premium bedding, generous baths and complimentary toiletries.

Pick the right room and you’ll also wake up to wonderful river views, or bathe al fresco in a semi open-air bath.

The hotel has its own restaurant, Ichii, where banquet-style meals are made from the freshest local ingredients. There’s a bar, gift shop, traditional games such as Go, Mah-jong and Shogi (Japanese chess) and a children’s play area. And if you need some me-time, take a dip in the hot spring baths or settle down for an indulgent massage.
