Just above the Odakyu Hakone Yumoto Station, Kappa Tengoku is 3min walk from the station. Up on the hill and surrounded by trees. Kappa means 'water sprite' and Tengoku means 'heaven' in Japanese. You can view the Hakone Yumoto town and streets from its guest rooms or ashiyu onsen (hot spring foot bath). Last check-in time is 10PM. Please make sure to arrive from 3PM to 10PM.
We on the steep hill side and there are over 20 steps up to the hotel entrance. So get ready to use a lot of mussels.

En-suite room is normally a combination of Japanese and Western-style. There are two beds in a Japanese tatami room.

Its onsen public baths are famous among Japanese tourists for its price and picked up as one of the cheap recommended spots in Hakone. The onsen bath are made with rocks. The temperature of the onsen water is somewhat lower than the ones in other places but it is still relaxing and will warm you up if you keep sitting in the bath tub over several minutes.
