Hi there, it’s Mr. Wada back on duty. Hakone is known for its onsen (hot spring) since there are many volcanoes like Owakudani in the area. This is one big reason we visited. There are many public onsen places and hotels as well and this time I would like to share two Hakone onsen places we visited during our stay.
Hakone Onsen Tenoyu
The first place is Tenoyu. It has both indoor and outdoor hot springs. If you prefer not such strong sulfur smell like Beppu Onsen in Kyushu, it may be good for you. I found it easy.
13-minute walk from Miyanoshita Hakone Tozan Train Station.

Good Restaurant Nearby
There is a nice restaurant very close to Tenoyu where it serves Japanese yam cuisine. It may not look like your favorite but give it a shot. It’s actually good and apparently it has so much health benefit like anti-aging, preventing cancer, etc.
I personally love the smell of sulfur, so I took a look at the map and found this place in Sengokuhara area where it is rather close to Mt. Kintoki. It has some mud at the bottom of the bathtub. I scrubbed my body with it, and turns out, my body smelled like boiled-egg after all! Not bad though. Hehe.
Catch a Hakone Tozan bus (to Kojiri or to Togendai) at Hakone Yumoto Station, get off at Senkyoro-mae.
