After the day being slightly hazy and enough so that we could not view Mt Fuji anywhere we were delighted to find on waking up and opening our HUGE picture window that overlooked the lake, FUGI-SAN! right there in full view perfectly clear as the view from our room.
Wonderful Hotel shuttle direct to Odawara station used to leave... If I had known that beforehand we would have also taken it from station to hotel. But we used the transport from our "Hakone free pass" which took alot longer. Located directly next to the sightseeing boats on lake Ashi, that connect with the cable car, rope bridge and the rest of the circuit; if you come out of hotel and go the opposite way there is a beautiful walking path along the lake to that historical gateway (I'm still jet-lagged so I forget the name).
PRIVATE ONSEN (for those of you that want to share that with your husband but his tatoos make it difficult)
& hotel massages
*If you can make reservations as times fill up for both.
Directly across the street is an excellent and super cheap restaurant too.
For the cost, this hotel was wonderful. VERY spacious for Japan.
We were only there 2 days 1 night but I wish we had stayed a few more days in both this hotel and this beautiful and relaxing area-
after 9 days with alot of walking in the heat of Kyoto, Nara and elsewhere sightseeing, this was a delightful break before returning to Tokyo.
