As a large waterpark, I was a little skeptical about the quality. However, I was pleasantly surprised with the variety of indoor and outdoor pools and baths. The themes were quirky but only novelties. I only had time to try the waterpark that included the "coffee", "green tea" and "pancake" theme hot pools but what really blew me away was... More

The Hakone national park offers an amazing variety of things to do. From a cruise on lake Ashi to a cable car ride which culminates in the steam vents at the top of the mountain, this area is worth a half day trip.

We went to Yunessun since my sister's family told us that they had a great time last year. If you are into amusement parks you will have a great time here. I am a nature type person so this was a little too made up. Basically this is Vegas/amusement park/pools. It was very cold outside (10C) and my feet were... More

The Yunessun is a hot springs resort in Hakone. The trip itself is great and very picturesque, as it is along the coast; think the Pacific Coast Highway with a bigger road and fewer curves. The Yunessun has a large number of different pools to try, both indoors and out. Some of the staples include sake, coffee, wine, green tea,... More

Ok, maybe I've only been to under 10 hot springs in my life so I don't know if it's the best ever, but hear me out. It's more of a theme park than natural hot springs, and I know that doesn't sound better but all the hot springs have different themes like red wine, ramen, and green tea. It's a... More

Wasn't expecting to go nude here. But as is custom, when in Rome, etc. etc. I hope there are no security cameras for there may be unaccustomed photography. Just kidding. This was a very natural and relaxing day for me I paid about 5,000 jpy for my ticket and enjoyed hours of hot spring and hot baths as well as... More

This is a great place for couples and families to have a fun day. We enjoyed time in several different hot springs (hot tubs). Maybe my favorite was the wine tub featuring a huge wine bottle continuing to pour fresh wine/water into the tub. Sometimes it got a little crowded, but people were continually moving around and we found some... More

This is a great place to relax. It's a hot spring with a twist; with coffee, wine, sake, chocolate and green tea. I think the best one is the outdoor spring over looking the mountains. Great view! I was here 3 years ago, it seems that the place was cut in half because of the construction going on the other... More

Best for nature-scene lover. Mountainous, foggy, and chilly. Indoor flavored pools are great. Hot water temperature is soothing. The crowd is distressing though. Swim wear rental is over-priced. Better bring your own swimming wear.
