KAI Hakone is a modern-style Japanese resort ryokan with tatami-matted rooms, although there are western-style room options too. The rooms are designed to provide a peaceful retreat with modern comforts.
The highlights are the traditional kaiseki cuisine featuring local Hakone dishes and the indoor/ outdoor baths with one wall open to the view of the woods.
I received a warm welcome to KAI Hakone, a modern ryokan renovated with wood and stone, with a juice cocktail in the lobby. This ryokan boasts very comfortable rooms, and lovely views of the nearby river.Reviewed by Guillaume
