Hakone Kowakien Yunessun, Hakone-machi

2.8
#2 of 76 in Spas in Kanagawa Prefecture
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. For Hakone Kowakien Yunessun and beyond, use our Hakone-machi holiday site to get the most from your Hakone-machi vacation.

  • In the family went to swing years. Do you have never previously come at the entrance? Asked and answered only once a long time ago and renovated two years ago, was smaller in scale and received the description. It was a totally different impression when I came long time ago indeed. So crowded during the week relatively polite and reasonably fun, kids. Fun waterslides located outside, had slipped several times. Because I was watching because it's cold in the winter bath with a long time crush was, or said I cold rolls out of the bath and... Maybe they caught a cold and seems fairly crowded on weekends, will wait for the waterslide is the cold season. I bought a ticket and the hotel Mori no Yu, 2 adults, elementary school students close to 10000 Yen with one takes. Unable to yunessun long soak in the tub was so giddy and enjoy the hot springs in the hot water of the forest. I think when you go to the next no Mori no Yu.

  • Went there for the day. Haven't been in a few years but it was much nicer. They brought the themed baths all inside like the wine, sake, green tea baths and have renovated much of the interior and expanded some of the outdoor baths. Quite clean now and great to bring kids or even friends from abroad for a good taste of Japanese bath culture.
  • Yunessun is a hot spring theme park. It's unique, very interesting and fun place to go with your family. We visited in January so we were mainly indoors, but they do have some outdoors features and they have summer version also. Do try the feature spas - coffee, wine, green tea and sake. Everything is very well organized (lockers, bags, clothes etc.) There are nice food options inside and there is a big souvenir shop at the end. Simply amazing. We would definitely go again if we visit Japan.
  • Great place to relax. I highly recommend paying the 100 yen for the fish to eat the dead skin off your feet. Make sure to bring a towel otherwise you will need to rent one for 100 yen. Also, stick around for when they "refill" the coffee and wine pools :D The best time to go is around 2-5pm on a weekday as there is hardly a crowd.
  • Great place to unwind. So much fun and the entrance fee is not too bad. I will definitely recommend this place.
  • Very fun place to visit, one level for traditional onsen and another level for the themed baths, there's also an outside area with slides and a nice view of the mountain. They have their instructions and map in English which helped a lot. They also have special price for couples which is a really good deal.

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.
