Mr Naka was super friendly and resourceful. Location was close to attractions surrounding Mt Fuji and shops (restaurants and 7-11). Place was amazing - super clean, comfy Japanese futons, good kitchen to prepare meals. We're glad we chose this instead of a hotel.
-Experience Japan House Style -Very comfort and clean -Staff (Mr. Taka) very nice guy, help a lot (Hakone Visit Area) -Location also near to 247 market (7elevent)- just few meter from Hanabi -very good facilities ( kitchen you can used for cooking, TV, heater, bath room, toilet, (toiletries given), -very satisfy to stay here
The bathroom was big however there is no small chair for taking a barh. We tried to call the hotel/guesthouse but cant reach it. When we got there my name didnt come up in the reservation list luckily there is no other guest at that time.
The care taker Naka Sang is very helpful. The first day when we arrived it was almost 3pm and we didn't do enough research, so we asked Naka Sang for his recommendations. And because of him. We get free Onsen service which was fantastic. The rooms are clean, bathroom and toilets too! Naka Sang said they are trying to make a light sign board so when the customers arrive at night time the would find the house. It's easy to get there, from Odawara, get a bus: Togendai "T" line, stop at Sengkokuhara-shogakko-mae. It's easy to recognise, the bus stop is near a 7eleven, which also added credit for you although the hostel didn't provide food, you can get everything in 7eleven and cook in Hanabi. Naka Sang speaks decent English! And he is very amiable. Try talking to him on a dinner table. You will be impressed. The house is very traditional, you can even wear something like a yukata to sleep. They provide shampoo, toothbrush and hairdryer too! Best stay for people who travel on shoestring and yes, I highly recommended you to stay here. REMEMBER BUY A HAKONE FREEPASS FOR 4000￥ AT ODAWARA STATION!
The landlord was very kind and friendly, we enjoyed two hours chatting with him about japanese culture. The house gives you a perfect experience in a japanese ryokan and you can also try a hot bath. The value for money is excellent! Absolutely recommended to anyone going to visit Hakone
Location: it was really hard to find the place, we got lost on the mountain and luckily the 7eleven stuff was so kind that they took us in front of the ryokan!
Actually it took 2 hours to find the place. Even the natives don't know this place. When we called them, nobody answered. The name of the hotel is writed on 50cm x 40cm whiteboard by hand. It is not a hotel. It is a house and you will share with others the main spaces. And in our day, it was over booked and the guy (I think he was the land owner) asked for two more people can stay with us! But the house is beautiful. With the good organisation, or could be nice place. I couldn't write gid things here.
Organisation, the house looked like abondened, no light in entrance, no name of the place, nobody answered the phone, and etc.
It's a japanese house with no one around. We were free to use the facilities as long as we take good care of them, I guess. There was decent wifi in the house. A nice deep bath. A fridge to put some drinks and food in. We walked around the neighborhood and found a grocery, a 7-11, a bit further was a 24h Lawson, some restaurants and a couple of museums. Here's a link to the street view that really saved us: https://email@example.com,139.012112,3a,45.1y,238.95h,90.23t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1s344mhDR2UtlPGnxR1DoifA!2e0!6m1!1e1 We called before checking in, the owner said to just go in the house and use the left room. The staff who collected our payment at night didn't speak english but a few hand gestures and drawings helped us a bit. My friend woke up the next day, early to hike up the near mountain. It was really convenient to be near the hiking trails, the bus stops to Gotemba (about an hour away) or another bus stop back to Gora (take the M bus, not the S or sightseeing bus to get there faster). The nearest bus stop to the inn is the Sengoku bus stop, which most of the buses stop at.
We went there during summer, so it was pretty hot during the day. We were a bit wary about sleeping with the windows open, because there was no electric fan or airconditioning in the rooms.
The house inside is clean. Rooms are pretty comfortable, yet simple. Kitchen is alright. Only one bathroom available for three rooms (max 10 people).
- the arrival: I arrived two hours before checking in. No one is there to welcome you. The house was open, but no sign of life inside. There's a notice left in the kitchen giving a phone number to call whenever you get there so the cleaning lady comes to check u in. I had to go to a hotel to make a phone call. - location: good location, but god, how can you find this place if nobody in this tiny village doesn't know even of the existence of such a hotel. This is called a hotel but it looks like an abandoned house from the inside. Grass hadn't been cut for years. There is just a tiny handwritten note saying hanabi to mention this place. Unfortunately I didn't see it at first and I wasted two hours of my time under the heat to find this place. Local Japanese people don't know this place, only other hotels have ever heard of it. The owner didn't even bother to come to check me in. I had to wait for almost an hour for the lady to come and check me in. The owner seems more interested in making money than providing a great experience of Japanese hospitality. Given the number of other hostels in the area, I strongly encourage to stay away from that place.
Everything is fine. The boss`s English is very good.
Nice place to stay. The room is comfortable, clean and quiet. The prize is cheap. Naka is a nice host whom I enjoy chatting with. I am the only guest staying in the hostel for the two nights so I enjoy lots of freedom. It has a cozy kitchen. It takes around 2minutes from Bus stop station, though it may be a little bit hard to find for the first time. There is a supermarket around.
Everything is nice.
- Traditional Japanese style rooms with tatami - Very relaxing and clean
-There is no clear information how to check in. We were not informed that we have to call in order to check in.
The earlier Canadian reviewer got it wrong: once you pass the 7-11 store, you take the second to the left (not the first). It's the second house on the left after the house with the high fence.
Hard to find. Very small sign not visible in the dark. Nobody answering the phone.
Everything - It's the perfect place to enjoy a traditional japanese house at a small price. The hotel is super clean, quiet and nicely built. Naka, the host, is really helpful and will be happy to share his thougts. We were only 2 guests. To get there, it's quite simple, get the line 'T' bus from Odwara or Hakone-Yumoto and stop at Sengokubara-something. From the stop pass in front of the 7-Eleven and take the first street on your left. The hotel is on your left at maybe 30 m. It will cost nearly 2000 yens (20$) one way by bus so it's wise to take the hakone free pass at Odawara or Shinjuku in Tokyo.
This is a lovely traditional Japanese Minshuku in the mountains near Gora. The host was fantastic - very welcoming and keen to do anything he could to make my stay better (he spoke very good English)! Even though the rooms are meant to be shared between guests, when I stayed I was the only guest there so I had a lovely big room to myself. It can get a bit chilly because it's quite high up, but the owner had put an electric heater in my room and switched it on in the evening before I got back so the room was nice and warm when I returned. The location was a bit out of the way (you have to take a bus from Gora, which takes 10 minutes if you get the fast bus, but if you mess it up and get on the slow bus like I did it can take over half an hour!) and the buses stop running fairly early, but there are plenty of restaurants and places to eat within walking distance. It's very much in the countryside, so not much to keep you in Gora much later than the buses run anyway. I really enjoyed staying here - a great authentic Japanese experience with a lovely owner, and very good value for money!
A little out of the town of Gora (you have to take a bus). Not really a problem, but means that you probably only want to go back at night, rather than for a stop during the day. Quite difficult to find - it just looks like a house, with a handwritten sign on the gate saying 'Hanabi' that's very easy to miss. However, the staff at the 7/11 around the corner know how to get there and one of them walked with me to find it (once they'd stopped laughing).
The location of this property was fantastic, in the mountains in a quiet village. We did have to ask several people for directions, but in the end we found it. Actually the property doesn't look anything like the picture from the outside and if I hadn't seen my name I wouldn't have thought I was in the right place! After a busy tour it was a great place to relax. It has a nice deep bath which worked well, however I couldn't get any hot water from anywhere else in the house, i'm sure there was a simple solution, but as there was no one available to ask we had to have cold showers. The ryokan isn't staffed so don't be surprised like us, if you arrive and there is no one there!
Just a heads up about a couple of things. On my booking it did say that the room had a TV and on suite bathroom which is not exactly the case. It's a traditional ryokan with a few rooms and a shared bathroom and there is a TV but it is in the kitchen and for everyone to use. It's cold at night, although they do have heaters, but for safety reasons they switch off after a couple of hours.
So, speaking from a guy who has been in Japan for 5 months, maybe in this way I am a bit biast. The place is a Japanese style house. It operates as a dormitory. There is no reception or anything what you would expect from a western hostel - its a house where you go to, get your Japanese style room, call the person on the phone who comes and checkes you in (You can call from skype via house wifi). By being a Japanese house, this means that you will sleep on the floor on the tatami. However comfort will be the same as if there would be a bed - since also beds in Japan dont really have soft pillows, they are just multiple-floor tatamis. If there will not be many people, management will try to keep the people as separated as possible. This means that you might get your private room. The house has a bath that you can use, optical speed internet WiFi. You will get one disposable toothbursh, toothpase, tiny towel for every day you stay there. Also one fresh returnable towel for every night you stay there, and a Japanese style pijamas - Included in the price. Drier and washing machine available were availabe free of charge. Free tea, coffe and miso soup. This is what I really liked here. There are no extra costs, the minimal comfort by Japanese comfort is very high. If you want a cheap Japanese experience in a Japanese house, and lots of privacy, go visit Hanabi. Japanese houses do not have central heating (as you might know already), so you have an electric heater, which warms up the room pretty fast. Hiking on Ashigara (Takao-san) available directly from the house.
The onsen close to the house (mitakeryokan) is expensive and very bad. Its not really an onsen, but a bath house. No saunas, only one temperature bath available, 1000JPY per hour and smells like alge. Take a bus somewhere else. Too expensive for too little quality.
Lovely traditional ryokan. The inn is a bit hard to find, even the taxi driver didn't know where to go, but that didn't stop the locals all pitching in to help. The owner was welcoming and spoke good English. The house is well equipped, and even comes with some toiletries. It also has a functioning kitchen and even a bath if you prefer this to an Onsen. When I stayed they had very few guests so I got a whole room to myself which was amazing! The only downside is it's about a 10 minute bus ride to Gora and in a very little town/area but there is a 7/11 just 2 minutes walk away and at least a dioxin restaurants, so really it's not a problem. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience and no major complaints.
The house was a little cold at night. A little out of the main area of Gora.
