Yudokoro Chōraku

Ryokan in Chōkoku-no-Mori & Gōra

Simple, homely ryokan with lovely owners (including the sprightly 93-year-old granny), enormous tatami rooms with kitchenettes and communal onsen with outdoor barrel tubs (available to nonguests, ¥550). If you're looking for a peaceful stay, this is a smashing deal. It's a 10-minute walk uphill from the Hakone Open-Air Museum, on the left.
