Hakone-Yumoto Onsen (箱根湯本温泉)

Hot Spring / Hot Spring Bath

The oldest of Hakone's hot spring villages, Hakone Yumoto Onsen was first developed in the Nara period, in the year 757 by Jojobo, an apprentice of the Shugendo monk Taicho, according to legend. In the Edo period, the village prospered thanks to its position on the Tokaido, one of the great Five Highways, and visitors can learn about the history of the area and Hakone from the Warring States period to the Edo period while exploring the village. Yumoto Onsen is also the largest of Hakone's hot spring villages, and the bath facilities of many of the innumerable long-standing traditional ryokan hot spring inns located near the station are open to non-guests, making it easy for visitors to enjoy a casual day of hot spring bathing. One of Hakone's most famous souvenirs is its yosegi-zaiku wooden mosaic work, a craft which emerged during the Edo period.

          Kanagawa prefecture acts as an extension of the Tokyo metropolis that spills over into coastal towns, most notably Yokohama city, heavily populated and known for its Chinatown and seaside attractions. Just the right distance for a day trip out of Tokyo, Kanagawa is home to some of Tokyo’s most accessible beaches, including around Kamakura, best known for its Big Buddha. Visitors can also travel a little farther afield for a weekend at Hakone onsen town.
