Motohakone Onsen

A challenge to impossibility, a well-known hot spring that broke the jinx

Introduction of Hot Springs (Onsen)

Moto-Hakone is the center of the tourism of Hakone, which was reputed as “an impregnable pass”, because there are many historic spots such as Hakonejuku, one of the Fifty-Three Stations of the Tōkaidō Road, the barrier of Hakone, the cedar trees as well as sightseeing of Ashino Lake and a great view of Mt. Fuji.
Moto-Hakone Onsen is located in this area, which is one of the best spa villages in Kanto Region. It is convenient to get to Hakone-Togendai, where there are the ropeway station and the pirate-ship boarding point.
You can see a lot of restaurants and souvenir shops standing in a row, and fully experience the true charm of Hakone.

Effects and characteristics of Hot Springs

In Hakone, there had been a saying that “hot water never wells up in sight of Mt. Fuji”. However, in 1966, they succeeded in transporting the hot water of Hanazawa Onsen to Hakone, then in 2006, they hit the spring at 1000 meters underground. Thanks to that, now we can enjoy bathing here while admiring Mt. Fuji.
