This is a true gem in Hakone. We have stayed there for only one night, we took the room with the private open air bathtub. First: we had just arrived at the Gora station, still trying to understand were we were; there were a brand new Mercedes with a private driver (not booked or asked for, by the way) waiting...

We celebrated an anniversary in this exceptional spa hotel. We had our own suite, so we did not use public services. It was cosy feeling when it was raining a lot. The service was excellent and traditional. Japanese dinner and breakfast in our own room was great. When we were leaving our own hostess and one of the hotel ladys...

My family (myself, my wife and our two teenage kids) stayed at Gora Kadan for one night in April 2017. It was a memorable experience. The structure is a combination of an historical landmark building and a series of annex which were built during the last few decades. While some of the common parts have the external appearance of 1970s...

This ryokan is absolutely amazing. We stayed in a couple other ryokans on the way and the offering here was absolutely outstanding. It was triple the price of what we paid before at other ryokans and therefore high expectations from our side. We stayed in the annex building - room Kakou with its own outdoor bath (as well as indoor...

Although very expensive even for Japan standards we decided to spend a night there before going from Tokyo to Kyoto. They were voted best spa in Japan and their Kaseki meal was supposed to be the best around Hakone. The staff was very friendly and helpful. That was a plus. Other than that me and my wife had at best...

This March I took out family of six (2 adults and kids aged 8-17) across the world on a tour of Japan, a place we had never been and made Gora Kadan our first Ryokan stay, as so many had recommended it. The Ryokan experience is different, for sure. Sleeping on floor mats may not be everyone's thing, and I...

Our visit to Gora Kadan started out a bit rocky. When we walked in my daughter felt that she was allergic to something in the air or the room. There is a strong scent of incense, flowers and also the tatami mats. She immediately started to have a reaction. We were worried that we were in for a long night....
