We got our hands on some from the spring, and -- as you may have guessed -- the garden is just as gorgeous this time of year. From delicate cherry blossoms to the season's fresh greenery, Yoshiike gives guests the opportunity to really feel the new life of spring, as well as the beauty of all four seasons.
Yoshiike Ryokan in Hakone has long since been a very popular inn here on JAPANiCAN.com. With the vibrant autumn foliage season coming up, they sent us some absolutely lovely pictures of their ryokan's grounds to share.
It really doesn't get much more picturesque than this. The picture on the right is a view from a window seat in the ryokan's restaurant and lounge in the evening when the trees outside are illuminated.
Fall not really your thing? More of a kick-back-with-some-hot-sake and world-covered-in-a-blanket-of-pure-white-serenity kind of person? Got ya covered:
We certainly can't forget about the food at Yoshiike.
Being a traditional inn, Yoshiike of course offers Japanese-style rooms, but did you know that Yoshiike created a special new twin room in response to demand from its guests?
The new twin room comes in two varieties:
- Garden View Twin Room with Garden View Hot Spring Bath
That's a lot of garden viewing! As described, it is a twin room that comes with your very own semi-open-air hot spring bath that looks out over the ryokan's garden. Available from JPY 44,100 per night for two adults (meals not included).
- Garden View Twin Room with Onsen Shower Booth
As you might have guessed, this one is pretty much the same as the one above, minus the bath. While it is lacking a bath, it does have a shower that actually uses hot springs, and you can venture out to one of the inn's excellent spas (communal and private available). Available from JPY 33,600 per night for two adults (meals not included).
