Surrounded by mountains providing magical views of pampas grass plains, Hakone has long been a favorite getaway for Japan’s elite, a place where since ancient times dignitaries and distinguished scholars have built their second homes. Its elegant museums and famous golf courses blend harmoniously into the natural beauty for which the area is renowned.

“Beautiful Japan’s Shangri-la.” No words could better describe Sengokuhara, the part of Hakone in which this exquisite boutique hotel with only eleven rooms is located. Private baths in each room are fed directly with hot-spring water. The food is the height of luxury, and the hospitality for which Japan is renowned is taken to its highest level.

To the very finest accommodations, food, and service, we add uniquely Hakone delights: pairing dinners with local sake, a tour of a local sake brewery, an opportunity to explore the world of Hakone Yosegi Marquetry.


A network of producers in Japan and across the world supply fresh produce directly to the restaurant. Drawing on his experience in French cuisine, head chef Suguru Urushibara combines the finest ingredients from Italy and France to create exquisite Italian dishes that are a feast for eyes and for the palate.
To fully enjoy the spectacular seasonal flavors of the local Hakone ingredients, each dish can be paired with wine from the Hiramatsu Hotel’s exceptional cellar or with locally brewed Japanese sake. Vegetarian, reduced sugar and gluten-free dishes are all available on request. Please discuss your needs with us when you make your reservation.


The hotel has two restaurants, beautifully furnished to create the perfect setting for a luxurious dining experience. The 2nd-floor restaurant is also open to non-residents for dinner. It opens at 5:30pm, convenient for visitors returning from a round of golf.

Uniquely Hiramatsu, Uniquely Hakone

The view of the Hakone Forest changes with the seasons. Rooms in the Main Building are ideal if you plan to enjoy frequent hot spring baths during your stay.

There are two open-air baths in the grounds of the hotel, with roofs and bathtub ledges made of hinoki cypress. Both can be reserved, allowing you to enjoy secluded bathing the fresh air, surrounded by greenery. We recommend the luxurious experience of a morning bath with a view.
