Accommodations in Japan

Ryokan Ichinoyu Honkan


Situated on the banks of the Hayakawa River in Hakone is this old ryokan from 1630, Ichinoyu Honkan.

Ichinoyu Honkan has a total of 22 traditionally appointed rooms with tatami mats, which are classic Japanese mats made of rice straw. Tatami mats have a temperature element that makes them cool in the summer and warm in the winter. The rooms also have traditional “shoji”, Japanese sliding doors made of rice paper on a wooden frame. The thinness of the rice paper allows light to flood into the room, but without you being able to see through it, preserving privacy.

When it’s time for bed, you will snuggle down on a traditional futon. The rooms are also equipped with Wi-Fi, air conditioning, a fridge, TV, an en suite bathroom and an electric kettle, so you can enjoy a cup of green matcha tea at the short-legged table.

This ryokan has gender-separated onset baths, a dining room as well as a souvenir shop selling local products. The breakfast and dinner, both of which are included in your stay, are served in the dining room.

In the morning or evening, you can slip into a traditional yukata kimono and visit the day spa, where you can enjoy a range of massages and facial treatments.
