Source-drawn hot spring water
The open-air large bathhouse is nestled peacefully in the rich nature, with an atmosphere like that of a hidden hot-spring in the mountains. Also, you can enjoy a retro feel at the indoor grand bathhouse that is made of rocks, a place that still maintains the historic scenery of Gora Hanaougi Sounkaku. And thanks to the source drawn hot spring water, you can now enjoy bicarb spring water to your heart's content that is elusive in Hakone.
The history of Gora onsen goes back to the 21st year of the Meiji era (1888), that's when hot-spring water was first drawn in from Sōunzan. Following which, since around the 45th year of the Meiji era (1912) when full-scale onsen development began, and with the beginning of the Hakone Tozan railway in the 8th year of the Taisho era (1919), the land witnessed development as a place of onsen and health resorts and high-class holiday homes. It's a rare quality in Hakone, generally renowned for its sulfur springs, to have a bicarb spring naturally sourced from Sounkaku. Tinged with red and featuring a syrupy consistency, the water imbues you with a warmth such that you won't get cold after taking a bath and is known to make your skin nice and smooth. The colour of the spring water changes depending on the day, and it's also fit for consumption.
Private open-air bath for reservation.
