Most secluded hot spring in japan
It is a quiet hot spring resort located between Hakone and Atami facing the Sagami Bay at the southwest end of Kanagawa Prefecture.
Yugawara is one of the leading Hot Spring resorts in Japan and famous for being an onsen (hot spring) town. It is an area where you can enjoy great nature as well as fresh seafood, as it is surrounded by mountains and ocean.
Around Yugawara there are many famous sightseeing areas, such as Atami, Izu, Hakone,Odawara as well as Mt. Fuji.
While Atami and Hakone bristle with large onsen Inns and hotels, Yugawara’s main accommodations are small scale, Japanese style inns, which retain the atmosphere of traditional onsen resorts.
The prefectural road No. 75 that connects Yugawara to Hakone Taikanzan and Lake Ashinoko, the so-called Tsubaki line is a winding road popular for riders.
Taikanzan is at the boundary between Yugawara and Hakone, and the view of Fuji and Lake Ashinoko is outstanding. Named after Yokoyama Taikan who was said to have drawn Mt. Fuji, it was named "Taikanzan."
