What to say, the place is just filled with grace and serenity, everything is nice to see, to feel, to enjoy. Baths are perfect, in the middle of the woods, from chilled cold to holly hot, a small sauna, salt, places to rest. Simple and authentic. Filled with locals. Mainly as a matter of fact. To visit if you can

We have visited this onsen recently. I was not impressed by it as we have been to another excellent one in the area the previous day. The setting is very normal, NO JACCOUZI, presence of different bath from cold to very hot water. The relaxing area was very crowded (a lot of foreigners). My wife told me that the woman's... More

We visited Hakone especially for a trip to experience an Onsen. The Tenzan Tohji-kyo was fantastic and well worth the effort of getting to Hakone! It was incredibly clean with basins and shower heads to thoroughly clean yourself before dipping into the different temperature pools ranging from very hot to a much needed cooler plunge pool. There is also a... More

We came to Hakone on the advice of some friends and we were glad to find out about this onsen as they accept tattoos! The whole building complex is beautiful (once you're inside) I can only speak for the ladies pools but what an experience, I spent two hours (feeling liberated with no clothes!) wandering from pool to pool, soaking...

Magical and surreal experience! Mostly locals are here enjoying the 6 different pools outside. We went on a Rainey cold day that was absolutely perfect for this experience! They only except cash and don't be daunted be all the cars lined up outside. Once outside by the pool area it didn't feel crowded at all and everyone was so respectful.... More

I chose this onsen because it is tattoo friendly. I am very happy with everything, the facilities, super clean, silent and relaxed atmosphere and all you need for shower, shampoo, conditioner, soap and hairdryer. Towels not provided tho. Flip-flops are not allowed inside the onsen but its not a problem because everything is clean. 1300 yen and 100 yen bus... More

This was one of the highlights of my trip to Japan. Being outdoors, on the side of a mountain in a natural hot spring is unlike anything I'd ever done before. You truly lose yourself to the beauty of the environment. The onsen is divided between men and women. The men's side has 7 different pools and a sauna.

Easy to get to from Hakone main station via the B bus (<10mins & 100¥). Well kept if busy mountain onsen with outdoor baths. Restaurant was good and good value. Baths are quite hot (majority over 41°C) but there is a cooler, milky pool more suitable for kids. Lovely, relaxed rest areas not just for napping - board games were... More

We didn't stay the night (as we'd left it too late to get a room) but the onsen experience itself was absolutely wonderful. My partner and I both have tatts and knew we'd be welcome here -unlike the hotel we did stay at. I made sure we read-up on the correct/non-offensive way to behave and I snuck a peak at... More
