Introduction of Hot Springs (Onsen)

Sengokuhara Onsen is part of Hakone’s best 17 hot springs, and hot spring water gushes out from Mount Kintoki where Kitaro, a hero of a Japanese folk tale, was raised, according to the legend.

This highland used to be the bottom of the Lake Ashinoko up to 20,000 years ago, and its landscape has remained as “Sengokuhara Marsh Plant Colony.” This is designated as National Natural Treasure where you can observe over 200 types of wetland plants.

As Hakone Botanical Garden of Wetlands (Shissei-Kaen) is Japan’s only botanical garden of wetland, it is worthwhile to extend your trip to Sengokuhara Onsen.

In addition, Susuki Plateau (Pampas Grass Field) on the slope of Tanigadake is also a popular sightseeing spot in autumn.

Effects and characteristics of Hot Springs

A variety of hot spring qualities ranging from transparent colorless to milky color are available that you can enjoy bath hopping.

Hakone has been flourished as a villa land since Showa period (1926-1989) filled with wide range of entertaining activities including golf courses and museums.

This is why people call Hakone “King of getaway places.”
