Gora Kadan in Hakone is on the grounds of a former summer villa belonging to the Imperial family. This luxury ryokan is a stunning place to dip into the hot-spring waters of Hakone and enjoy the surrounding nature. Gora Kadan stands as an example of understated luxury. The rooms have the modernity you expect (flatscreen television, fast internet, climate control), but combine impressively with traditional Japanese room design. The beautifully appointed rooms look out on the peace of Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park. Most rooms have private baths with a view. Gora Kadan also enjoys its own hot spring, with plentiful hot water. The onsen has been designed to blend with the natural beauty of the area and features several indoor and outdoor baths. A spa provides massage and curative treatment for weary sightseers at the end of a long day. The hotel prepares excellent "kaiseki" meals, taking full advantage of Izu’s bountiful produce.
It is centrally located for all Hakone attractions. In the immediate area is Lake Hakone, an ancient cedar forest, several art museums, and plenty of hiking in the national park.
