Two weeks ago I had a very inexpensive, nice day and night soaking in the natural hotspring waters of Hakone. While it is not the most extravagant place I have stayed at, it suited all our needs. “Kappa Tengoku” is located just 3 minutes from Hakone Yumoto Station. I got a room for two for a total of 10,800 yen, which is a steal. There were two outdoor baths and a footbath that overlooked the town. A real nice, no-frills escape! I will surely do it again.
