If you only have two people and you don’t need to drag your suitcase, you can take a bus or a taxi. You only need to walk a short distance after getting off the bus to reach Hoshino Group Kai Hakone.

However, if you are going with the elders and children at home this time, or if you need to drag your suitcase, you can take a taxi to the gate of Hoshino Group Kai Hakone. Compared with taking a bus, it is more convenient and safer.

The fare for taking a bus or a taxi is about ¥100 per person, or ¥1,000 for a one-way trip. So as long as you are going to Hoshino Group Kai Hakone together with more than 3 people, and you also need to take care of your luggage, taking a taxi will be the best transportation solution.

Room at Hoshino Resorts Kai Hakone

To say that one of the reasons why Hoshino Resorts World Hakone is worth trying to stay in is that the size of each room is not small, and you can also monopolize the river and mountain scenery outside.

For example, in terms of room area, if you think that 30 square meters of hotel rooms in the Tokyo area are enough, in fact, the area of most rooms in Hoshino Resorts Hakone is about 50 square meters. For example, the smallest room is 46 square meters, and the largest room can be more than 60 square meters. Basically, how to open the suitcase and stretch out in the room is absolutely no problem. In addition, if you are not used to enjoying hot springs in large public baths, you can also reserve a room with a private bath, which is also a good alternative.

Also because this is a high-end hot spring hotel, when you arrive in Hoshino Group Hakone, the hotel staff will give you a detailed introduction to every feature of the room, and will also carry your suitcase from the front desk to the room for you. These are unexpected considerate services before check-in.

And for you who plan to stay in a hot spring hotel for vacation, you don’t need to make any itinerary for the whole day in Hoshino Group Kai Hakone. You just need to enjoy the scenery in the room, enjoy the hot spring at any time, and then leave on time to the restaurant of the hot spring hotel Enjoying dinner and breakfast is the best itinerary for two days and one night.

Meals at Hoshino Resorts KAI Hakone

In addition to the size of the room, you can also experience the difference between Kai Hakone and ordinary hot spring hotels when dining.

For example, when staying in other hot spring hotels, you will often encounter some very lively buffet scenes that require queuing and can also make you full, but these scenes are basically completely impossible to find in Hoshino Resorts World Hakone. Instead, there are independent dining rooms one after another, allowing you to slowly enjoy the meal of the day with your family and friends.

Whether it is dinner or breakfast, there is basically no time limit for meals. So you will have enough time to take out your camera to take pictures, you can also taste different meals slowly, or ask the staff to recommend some Japanese wine for you. Basically, it is very common to spend about 2 hours enjoying their dinner.

And the whole dinner arrangement is similar to the usual standard Japanese cuisine. So you will see that the staff will serve first, pay first, then eight inches, soup, fried food, rice, and finally dessert. The ingredients used throughout the dinner are some of the simplest, most basic ingredients, so you will not encounter king crab. But Hoshino Resorts Hakone is used to redesigning all meals, and they always have a way for you to keep taking pictures with the food.

On the whole, the portion of dinner is enough to make you seventy percent full, and you can go to experience the hot spring immediately after a short rest, basically without any discomfort. In general, this is also one of the places that make people feel very considerate when Hoshino Resorts Kai Hakone designs the menu.

As for the breakfast arrangement, although Hoshino Resorts Hakone does not provide an all-you-can-eat buffet breakfast like ordinary hotels, it provides traditional Japanese breakfast like most other high-end hot spring hotels. That is, grilled fish, rice, pickles, some seemingly simple meals, but very suitable for enjoying in the morning. Compared with some hotels that provide fried food in the morning, the breakfast in Kai Hakone does not have a greasy feeling, which is very suitable for buying time to enjoy the hot spring after breakfast.

Hoshino Resorts Kai Hakone hot springs

Another reason why it is worth staying in Hoshino Group Kai Hakone is their semi-open-air hot spring with river and forest views. You can enjoy the hot spring and the outside scenery quietly, and unknowingly spend more than 10 minutes in the large public bath. half an hour.

Compared with the large public baths of other hot spring hotels, the large public baths in Kai Hakone usually have a very small flow of people, with an average of only 3 to 5 people. Even during the peak hours around dinner, there is basically never a sea of people in the bath. If you want to enjoy the hot spring without interruption, there is absolutely no problem.

In addition, perhaps because the housing prices in Kai-Hakone are relatively high, the tourists who generally stay have a certain financial ability and know how to abide by etiquette, so the hot spring experience in Kai-Hakone is different from the hot spring experience that other hot spring hotels get in large public baths will be much better.

The most important thing is that, in terms of semi-open-air hot springs, the area of Kai Hakone's hot springs is relatively large. Because common hot spring hotels only have indoor hot springs to choose from, even if they provide semi-open-air hot springs, many semi-open-air hot springs are very small. When you are using the semi-open-air hot spring, if other people walk in at the same time, the atmosphere will become a bit awkward.

To put it simply, as a high-end hot spring hotel, Hakone is very good in terms of hot springs. If you have enough time in your itinerary, Jie Hakone will also arrange to exchange the male and female hot springs when you have time, so that you can experience the different scenery of the two hot springs at the same time within two days and one night of staying in Kai Hakone.

Event Schedule at Hoshino Resorts KAI Hakone

If you are staying in Kai Hakone for the first time, since there are a lot of people waiting for taxis at Hakone Yumoto Station at dusk, we highly recommend that you arrive at Kai Hakone on time at 15:00 in the afternoon. Then go through the formalities of registering and receiving the room, and make an appointment for the dinner time of the day and the breakfast time of the next day at the same time, so that you can have more time to enjoy the hot spring.

Generally speaking, dinner can be chosen to start at 17:30 or 19:30 in the evening, and breakfast can be chosen between 07:30 and 09:30 in the morning. Basically, there will be vacancies at any time, and you can choose the best time according to your dining habits.

However, if you really want to participate in the "local music" free experience event organized by the staff around 21:00 in the evening, you will not easily miss the opportunity to participate in the event if you choose to have dinner earlier. Of course, if your goal is to come to Hakone to eat, rest, and enjoy hot springs, there is basically no difference in which dinner time you choose.

For a hot spring hotel, the main activity in Kai Hakone is to enjoy hot springs and Hoshino Group's service experience at any time, so you will not find other special facilities in Kai Hakone. If you expect to be able to use the swimming pool and gym during your stay, you may be disappointed. But even if you don't have these special facilities, as long as you go to the large public bath a few times, you will find that time passes very quickly. In addition, there are some massage services, wine tasting experience, and handmade product experience that can be budgeted.

However, of course, after you stay in a room in Kaihakone, you will find that the most suitable activity arrangement in Kaihakone is actually not to arrange any activities. As long as you rest constantly, enjoy the hot springs, and eat meals on time, it is enough.
