We were very well welcomed. The room has a direct view to the Mount Fuji! The Onsen bath is awesome with the view. I forgot to tell the restaurant that I don't eat fish and they adapt it for the next meals (breakfast and dinner), so nice from them!

Nestled in the heart of Hakone is a gem of a resort that would rest the mind, quieten the heart and sooth the body.||Ryuguden promises a Ryokan experience with professional hotel service. We opted for the larger room with its own private onsen, and it was like living in your own little home, with the choice to dip in the hot and soothing onsen water at any time!||The view was resplendent, with the quiet mountains, serene lake and ... Mt Fuji majestically perched between the hills. There is a ledge to sit on and just enjoy the view.||There were two large rooms, a separate tea room for two and a separate sink and fridge area to prepare your tea. Hot and cold water all prepared.||The staff were very professional, and those from Taiwan spoke both Mandarin and English fluently. ||Breakfast and dinner are provided, with high quality produce and served in the main dining hall, which looks like a high end Japanese restaurant. You wear your Yukata and the seating is reserved by room.||Breakfast is four dishes and rice, served together and with Japanese tea. Dinner is a 7-8 course of high quality Japanese food. You CBA order beer or sake to accompany.||The hotel onsen is available for guest use, as is the connected public onsen, where you get your own locker upon check in.||Great place to relax, enjoy the scenery and put your city stress away, if just for a few days!
