All About Japan

The Ryokan Designed After a Moon Princess

| Ryokan , Hakone-Yugawara

The famous Japanese folk legend of Kaguya-hime (also known as The Tale of the Bamboo Cutter) tells the story of a beautiful princess found in a bamboo stalk who eventually returned to the moon. Built with that story in mind, Kinnotake is a playful, extraordinary inn constructed in harmony with the nature of Hakone.

Located in Sengokuhara with its many facilities and art museums, this ryokan is convenient for its location close to Hakone sightseeing spots like Lake Ashi. It also has an excellent view of Mount Fuji and easy access to Gotemba. For a fee, pickup service from the airport is available, and they even have a large collection of wines and a fully equipped spa room. Take in the charms of the bamboo found all throughout the building as you enjoy a first-rate stay in Japan!
