If you are looking for luxury modern ryokans in Yugawara, you must stay here. This is a small ryokan, just 17 rooms.  There are wonderful rooms with outdoor private hot springs.  The ambience would be serene, comfortable and relaxed.  The hotel would be great for couples, family, solo travelers, or small groups.  *A minimum age requirement of 6 applies.  If you are going to stay here, I would highly recommend booking a room with a private hot spring.  Others wouldn’t be special.  We spent a lot of time jumping in and out of our private one while hearing white noise from the river.  The spring quality is soft, moist, and smooth.  Overall, facilities tend to be outdated except the lobby, the dining room, and rooms with private hot springs.  Then all of the amenities are taken care of including enough toiletries, yukatas, a complimentary minibar including beer, a coffee machine with capsules and a green tea set, etc.  There are some colorful yukatas at the lobby which you can choose.  Also a CD player, a DVD player, and an air cleaner are placed in our room.  Wifi reception was good in the property.  Then room service is not available.  There is no convenience store nearby.  You may want to buy your necessities before coming here.  Then the property is not universal design.  There is no lift.  If you take people with weak feet, you may want to inform staff of it in advance as they can arrange a room near the lobby.  Then there are small indoor and outdoor public hot springs in-house.  They are open from 15:00-11:00 the following morning.  Also there is an Asian-style private family hot spring.  You need to book it when you check in.  You can complimentary use it for 40min.  It’s open from 6:30-10:00, 15:00-23:50.  If you book a room without meals and you want to use it, you need to pay an additional fee.  *Please note that if you have tattoos and want to use the public hot springs, use reserved one instead.  Then Japanese kaiseki cuisine for dinner was wonderful.  If you are a gormet, you must stay here.  All local ingredients were high end, such as fish, beef, and vegetables.  Only dessert was mediocre, though.  The portion tends to be average.  All meals are served in a dining area.  The tables in the dining room are separated by dividers that provide a decent level of privacy.  Dinner starts from 17:30 or 20:00.  Breakfast starts from 8:00, 8:30, or 9:00.  *Please note that inform staff when you book a room with meals if you have any food allergies.  They probably wouldn’t be able to prepare it if you request on that day.  Then the property is out of the way.  As far as I know, there is no restaurant within walking distance.  If you go out for dinner, you would need to go back around Yugawara Station by taxi.  If you check in earlier, you may want to book a room including meals.  Then staff tends to be not sophisticated, but they would be helpful, warm and attentive.  Then an access to the property would be easy.  You can take a taxi from Yugawara Station.  It costs around JPY1,600.  It takes 10min by car.  Actually there is the nearest bus stop but there are many slopes around the property.  I wouldn’t recommend taking a public bus from the station.  Free shuttle service is available from the property to the station only after checking out.  Overall, the location is very nice to refresh from hustle and bustle of city life.  It takes just 70min from Tokyo Station.  Enjoy being completely lazy and recharge your batteries.  Have a nice trip!  Welcome to receive any questions about the property from the below space.  *All information is as of the date that I posted on my blog.  **Check in and out times 15:00/11:00   Check Availability and Pricing for the ryokan on Booking.com or Agoda
