Hakone Yumoto Onsen4.7
Hakone is one of the country's oldest onsen resorts, and Yumoto is the most popular in this area with its long history. This is a very popular onsen destination because of its easy access from Tokyo, 90 minutes by train, and a large number of onsen inns and foot baths available for day trippers. There are plenty of hotels and ryokan inns dotted all over the slopes of Mount Hakone.
Around Hakone Yumoto Station stand an array of souvenir shops, where you can purchase 'onsen manju', soft steamed buns filled with sweet bean paste, and rice crackers limited to this area. Authentic Japanese cuisine is offered at the old-established ryokan inns designated as Important Cultural Properties. This is a resort where you can fully enjoy things Japanese - hot springs, yukata (light kimono), and traditional food.
