Enjoy a relaxing bath in hot springs with a fun twist at Hakone Kowakien Yunessun. Far from a traditional onsen setting and more like an amusement park, an assortment of interesting twists on the formula await. Perfect for families, as visitors don't have to disrobe, you’ll find an onsen filled with wine, green tea, sake, and even coffee, with giant tea pots and wine bottles hanging above their respected pools. If you're looking to simply unwind, the peaceful sounds of the waterfall pool with the pleasant mountainous backdrop can help do the trick.

  • An indoor and an outdoor pool with a lot of hot springs. You must change into swimsuits. Favorites is a salt bath. It looks like the dead sea, the body floats. However, in wounds to the body and so, the sore.

  • Yunessun is a super fun day out. Heading there with friends can be a really relaxing experience, as you take your time to go through the themed baths, saunas, and even doctor Fish (those little fish that eat the dead skin off of your feet). The themes for the bath are really fun, and I recommend that you wait for them to refill them (the staff will very gladly poor coffee directly on you) and don't worry about your swimwear, everything is diluted enough to not cause stains.
  • This is a fun place to take the family! The coffee bath is legit; there’s a bag full of coffee in it. The wine and saki are fun too. The Dr. fish pool was fun too. We went during winter so outside was freezing while we soaked up the outdoor baths. The kids loved the slides and outdoor pools too.
  • The yunessen was pretty interesting, there were different variations like green tea, red wine and beer. The fish leg massage spa was a once in a lifetime experience. Spent about an hour at the hot spring theme park before showering and leaving.
  • Awesome spa setup with multiple hot springs, kids area and a water slide. Highly recommended visit, even in winter as most of this is inside. The coffee, wine and sake baths are a little chintzy. Could be just food colouring and a bit of scent.
  • The hot springs were unique and interesting! There were many facilities and the service was great! There are free lockers for people to place their belongings and there is a room for people to clean up (equipped with hair dryers, sterilized combs, face lotion and milk for women, and hair tonic for men). 2 thumbs up!

Where to stay in Hakone-machi

A getaway close to the capital, Hakone-machi offers a good range of accommodations, with a particular emphasis on luxury and upmarket hotels. Spa resort-style hotels, often with extensive views of the iconic volcano, sit in the main tourist areas, with their spa facilities using naturally warmed waters from the hot springs around the area. The more densely populated areas to the east house a good number of simple guesthouses and hostels. Staying in Tokyo and taking day trips remains an option for many visitors.
