We were travelling from Tokyo to Kyoto and decided to spend a night at a ryokan with a private bath for the experience. The "cottage" was oldish Japanese and clean overall. The dinner and breakfast was ok but nothing to write home about. Soaking outdoors in the cold in a natural hot spring bath was the highlight and it is an experience if this is what you came for. However you must be prepared to pay for this extravaganza! It has to be said we booked 2 weeks before our stay and had to pay mor... Read more

From Tokyo we took the Odakyu Romance rail car to Hakone-Yumoto station. Where you could get lunch and quaint Japanese snacks before getting on the bus 2 to Horai-en which cost 580yen. It started to rain when we were on our way to the ryokan. When we got off, a staff came towards us with umbrellas and carried our bags to the reception. We checked into our Japanese villa with the private onsen, the room was good sized with a living/dinning area with a separate area for sleeping. Like ever... Read more

My husband and I spent the last leg of our Japan trip at the beautiful Mikawaya Ryokan nestled in the mountainside in Hakone. It was a one day stay since it was a bit of a splurge but was worth every single penny. Getting there: We arrived at Odawara station from Kyoto. I highly recommend using either the coin storage here or the luggage forwarding service located at the bottom most floor (after exiting the station, go towards the buses and take both escalators down ...

We stayed in the Japanese style villa so our experience relates to these rooms. Not all rooms are the same and don't all have meals in room like we did. If you do stay in one of these villas you will not be disappointed. loads of room your own garden with own onsen all privately screened from everywhere else and quiet. Or daughters were in the next villa and we couldn't hear them ! breakfast and dinner all served in room by delightful ladies in traditional dress. you are also supplied with yukat... Read more

Mikawaya is a real gem. A real sense of culture and history oozes off it, and the rooms are wonderfully decorated. The staff are some of the friendliest and hospitable people i've ever come across, where nothing was too much trouble. Wifi is only available in the reception area, but the breathtaking views in the surrounding area make it easy to keep away. Lots to do in the surrounding area with a bus stop directly outside the Ryoken. Staff encouraged us to indulge in the Japanese culture that ma... Read more

This is an 18th Century Ryokan built over a hot springs. We saw things there that you only see in museums, including three large meeting rooms with the original screens. Set along side a beautiful stream carved into the mountainside, we had a room with a private Japanese style hot bath situated in a rock garden. On the fourth floor you can bathe outdoors in another hot spring. This is an old building so you need to appreciate vintage inns, but I found it wonderful. They had, however, modern... Read more

Mikawaya is a wonderful Ryoken with community and in room onsen (if you get the rooms with open air bath or the double wide suite they have private onsen). This is a lovely, historical old place (main building ~130 years old) with charming staff who make your stay special. We had a Japanese style room with open air bath and onsen, it cost around $500 a night and included breakfast and dinner. Our room did not have an indoor shower or bath, which we didn't mind because we loved the outdoor shower... Read more

They have a staff who speaks English quite fluently so no worries about that. This place is over a hundred years old and you can enjoy the old historic architecture including the Onsen spa. The food was superb. They changed the menu for us when we found a dish we'd rather not eat. There is a bus stop in front of Mikawa-ya and they also have a free parking space. I've stayed at much more expensive ryokans, but they didn't satisfy me this much. Looking forward to visiting them again. 歴?????... Read more

Just left the Mikawaya after a two-night stay and have rarely felt so relaxed (and so clean!). Our room was in the modern wing and featured its own mini-onsen on the balcony, allowing the whole family to bathe together in the open air. It was our first experience of a traditional Japanese inn and at every turn the staff were friendly and informative. We loved wearing our yukatas, even to the dining room. The keiseki evening meal was utterly exquisite and the high point of our trip so far. The ... Read more

We stayed here recently and were very pleased with everything. We stayed in two different rooms because we booked a bit late, but everything worked out wonderfully well. Our first room had an in room bath, which we enjoyed and was in the newer part of the ryokan. The meals for this room were served in the dining room and that was fine. We thoroughly enjoyed the dinner and the breakfast and appreciated the choice of a western or Japanese style meal. They were also very helpful related to vegetari... Read more
