There is also a microbubble bath and sauna.

3. Sekizenkan – Indulge in Japan’s Oldest Hot Spring Hotel (Shima Onsen, Gunma)

Within Gunma’s Shima Onsen is the famed Sekizenkan, which is housed inside Japan’s oldest hot spring inn structure still surviving today. Along with the regular plans is an all-inclusive option treating guests to the pinnacle of luxury.

Shima Onsen boasts over 1,200 years of history as one of the country’s most attractive hot spring villages. “Shima” means “40,000” in Japanese, which is said to refer to the belief that the waters here can cure 40,000 illnesses! It can be reached from Tokyo in around 3 hours, with a direct highway bus departing from Tokyo Station.

Sekizenkan’s facilities are made up of three buildings – the “Honkan” main building, the “Sansou” mountain villa, and the “Kashoutei.” The all-inclusive plan is held in the latter, which seamlessly blends the modern and traditional with a profusion of history and luxury.

Along with breakfast and dinner, you’ll be able to help yourself to a selection of in-room drinks and evening meal beverages (beer, champagne, sparkling wine, soft drink, etc., non-bottle). After bathing in the roomside open-air baths, you can tour and enjoy four different hot springs throughout the premises.

The all-inclusive rooms are 5-star, open-air bath style with two different types available from a total of 5 rooms. Blending traditional Japanese ambiance with modern convenience and comfort, you’ll be able to appreciate the best of both worlds thoroughly. You can also extend the regular check-out time of 11 a.m. until noon, giving you a full extra hour to relish the opulence.

Sekizenkan boasts four unique hot springs to enjoy, including the registered tangible cultural property of “Genroku no Yu” built in 1930 and the open-air bath of “Mori no Yu.” Each is worthy of the inn’s reputation as a “healing hot spring,” which has attracted continuing guests since long ago seeking to cure ailments and injuries through the mineral-rich waters.

Dinner is a lavish course of top-quality ingredients lovingly crafted by the chef. Incorporating a diverse selection of local delicacies and carefully selected vegetables, seafood, and meat, each dish is a work of art. This is your chance to discover the authentic Japanese “kaiseki” cuisine that ryokan are renowned for.

Each window of the Kashoutei guest rooms faces a 300+ year old grand pine tree.

International guests who stayed at Sekizenkan said, “I felt blessed to enjoy such an authentic Japanese hot spring experience,” and “the staff were incredibly kind and helpful.” It appears that the vast majority of guests were thoroughly satisfied with the hospitality of this esteemed Japanese inn.

4. Bar Hotel Hakone Kazan – Relax With All-Inclusive Drinks! (Hakone, Kanagawa)

4. Bar Hotel Hakone Kazan – Relax With All-Inclusive Drinks! (Hakone, Kanagawa)

Bar Hotel Hakone Kazan sits quietly upon the side of Mt. Hakone in the Kowakudani area encompassed by lush wilderness. Designed upon the innovative concept of “a bar you stay in,” guests can unwind and drink while basking in the surrounding scenery from check-in until late at night. Alongside regular plans, there is a special all-inclusive option for one room only.

The rooms retain the classy, cool character of the bar and boast fantastic views of Mount Asama and Myojogatake. The all-inclusive Presidential Suite comes equipped with its own bar cabinet filled with drinks selected by the hotel bartender free to be enjoyed.

The Presidential Suite also has a semi-open-air bath, cold water bath, and sauna, allowing a multitude of ways to relax away your time. You can also use the shared bath until 3 a.m. for free, as well as the reservable “private spa & bar” for an additional charge. This is the ultimate accommodation for those wishing to relish top-tier drinks alongside the warmth of private hot springs.

At dinner, served in either the bar or your room, you’ll be able to feast upon a plethora of light dishes and bar food such as an original curry, all designed to pair with drinks ordered a la carte (menu is changed periodically). Naturally, there’s a gigantic drinks menu featuring 400 different selections of beer, sake, wine, cocktails, and more.

The next day, you’ll be served a champagne lunch overlooking the vast nature of Hakone. Enjoying these exquisite dishes, which include galettes and other meals made with seasonal ingredients, paired with the splendor of champagne is undoubtedly the height of pleasure!

The gorgeous panoramic views from the wide 2nd-floor lounge windows are also worth sitting down to appreciate. After dark, you can enjoy this scenery alongside a glass of wine, beer, or even homemade sangria – which are, of course, included!

Check-in here is at 6:00 p.m., much later than most accommodation. Instead, check-out is extended to 2:00 p.m., alleviating the worry of an early morning with a hangover. Here you can forget the hustle and bustle of the outside world and sip away your worries nestled amongst the nature of Hakone.
