Mikawaya
Hakone

This charming little ryokan is ten minutes’ walk from Hakone open-air museum and is what we’d call boutique, with 25 rooms in three traditional buildings each given a fanciful name like ‘Moon’ or ‘Wind’. Most of them have a private ‘rotenburo’ open-air hot spring bath with lovely views of the well-kept gardens and wild valleys beyond. Although only a couple of staff speak English, expect courteous bowing service and dozens of meticulously prepared dishes that make up the ‘kaiseki’ multi-course dinners.

I can't think of anything that excites a greater sense of childlike wonder than to be in a country where you are ignorant of almost everything.
