Sanctuary Villas in a tranquil forest.

Enveloped in the constantly changing lush nature of Japan’s four bountiful seasons, Hakone’s Miyanoshita area is a one-of-a-kind paradise. Here, 100 meters down in a secluded and unexplored valley, lies ESPACIO The Hakone Geihinkan Rin-Poh-Ki-Ryu, a beautiful retreat surrounded by nothing but calm, peaceful silence and the gentle murmuring of the nearby river. This place was simply made for Hakone.

Hot spring

Ethereal hot springs have been bubbling up from the depths of Hakone since ancient times.

Hakone’s hot springs were first discovered in the middle of the 8th century and became widely known during Japan’s Edo period (1603-1867).
The soothing hot springs of Yumoto, Tonosawa, Miyanoshita, Sokokura, Kiga, Ashinoyu, and Dogashima came to be revered as therapeutic baths, collectively known as the “Seven Hot Springs of Hakone”.
It was out of this blossoming hot spring culture that the famous ryokan inns of Hakone were established, catering to feudal lords and wealthy merchants seeking healing and relaxation, as well as their families.
Now, centuries later, Hakone remains a popular hot spring resort overflowing with peace and tranquility.
