This was our first time at a ryokan. When we arrived, Google maps had us walk from the museum of the Little Prince bus stop across the street and down an alley, which was great. However, it then suggested we turn left down a driveway/small road; don’t do that, continue straight to the main street and then turn left. Upon arrival we were asked to remove our shoes and taken to the welcome room. Here, we were given matcha tea and another slightly sweeter jelly-type food of which I don’t know the name. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful by explaining everything in English. We then chose our yukata to wear during our stay. Next, we were given a tour. We chose the 6PM dinner, which allowed us time to enjoy a soak in the onsen before dinner. The reservation of the private onsen simply consists of writing your room number on the whiteboard timetable outside the onsen. There are two private onsen and a public onsen for each gender for which no reservation was needed. The whole place is very quiet and relaxing. Our room was very clean and had its own smaller onsen out the back door. Since you shower before your soak in the onsen, this is where your actual shower was too. Dinner was served in our room. It is a LOT of food, so be prepared. The beds were comfy and breakfast was served in the Breakfast Room. The staff were very friendly and I would recommend this place.

My stay here and Hakone trip was the best part of our Japan trip! Rikyuan is very classy and quaint from the moment you walk in, the service feels very specialised and the environment is peaceful and relaxing. It is close to the bus stop and we were able to forward luggage here from Hakone Yumoto so no need to stress out about getting here. I booked a room with a private outdoor bath and it was really cool to use. There are also public women and men's onsen, as well as two private reservable onsen for the whole ryokan which are easy to book timeslots for. The reservable onsen was also really nice to use so you don't miss out on anything if you don't get a private bath. Breakfast and dinner were always served timely and had a variety of foods. Breakfast is a japanese style meal usually with rice and fish and other foods, and dinner changed each night with about 6-7 different courses. The food may be a bit different if you are not used to japanese food, but i really enjoyed trying everything. The staff are all very nice and welcoming and there were a number of them who were able to speak with us in English if we needed help or service. Overall I really enjoyed my stay here and would definitely recommend it if you are going to Hakone!
