10 Open-air bath Onsen Ryokans in Hakone for Ultimate Relaxation

Date published: 2024/06/26

Hakone Onsen is renowned as one of the premier hot spring destinations in the Kanto region, easily accessible from Tokyo. It offers a popular tourist experience that goes beyond hot springs, including the beauty of nature, art museum tours, and gourmet dining in shopping districts. Among the hot springs, the open-air baths are particularly beloved. These baths offer a unique charm that allows you to feel close to nature and enjoy an openness that indoor baths can't match.

Here, we introduce ryokans in Hakone that boast open-air baths. Based on official websites and information from Booking.com, we have carefully selected accommodations that have high overall ratings (8 or above) on Booking.com, exude luxury (4 stars or more), and have a sufficient number of rooms (10 or more).
From various open-air baths, you can relax while taking in the magnificent views of lakes, mountains, and gardens.

We recommend booking your favorite accommodation before it is fully booked!
