Yoshike Ryokan is conveniently located at seven minutes on foot from Hakone-Yumoto Station, which takes 86 minutes
by an express car from Shinjuku station in Tokyo. This area has a history stretching almost 1300 years as a hot spring.
It is very pleasant to see a Japanese garden with an area of 33,000 square meters, inherited from Iwasaki Zaibatsu,
a financial combine. Here, you can enjoy the beautiful natural scenery that changes every season.

Yoshiike Rykan is a modern ryokan in Kanagawa Prefecture. It offers guests friendliness and Japanese-style hospitality.
A ryokan is a type of traditional Japanese inn that originated from the Edo period ( 1603-1868).
They typically feature tatami-matted floors, where a guest may wear a yukata, a kind of kimono.


The route how to get there from Tokyo:
(1) Get a limited express modern train from Shinjuku station, Tokyo
(2) From Tokyo station: Take Tokaidou shinkansen super-express train to Odawara; then, change a train to Hakone-Yumoto.

A Japanese garden was used in a villa of the Iwasaki family, the founder of Mitsubishi Zaibatsu.
