Things to do at night in Hakone

I am still debating about our 3 day stay in Hakone .

At first thought the Gora area would be a nice base for day-time activities.

Now I am wondering what there is to do at night in this area. Gora sounds pretty isolated ,which is wonderful for many reasons.

Would Hakone Yumoto be more interesting if we wanted to venture out at night ?

Does the Tozan train stop running at night between Gora and Hakone Yumoto ?

Thank you !

Having read some more about Hakone , it seems most things are closed after 6-7PM.

Hotel Suimeisou in Hakone-Yumoto is in my budget at $337/night for 2 with breakfast and dinner.

Has anybody been there ?

I think Lcuy has been to Suimeisou and liked it.

Night life when staying at a ryokan would involve being there for the dinner and baths before and maybe a soak after.....you will see. That said, Suimeisou is right in Hakone-Yumoto so if you really want the night life you could go to the local Pachinko Parlor,lol

Aloha!

Hi HT

Thanks for hanging in there with me.

This dilemna about where to stay is becoming more difficult by the day as I discover more and more new ryokans.

I would really like to be in Gora, in a traditional ryokan with hot springs, but they are all pricey.

Gora Kansuiro would be my dream ryokan from what I can tell. Could it possibly be worth it ? How does one justify the cost ?

I like the way Kijitei Hoeiso looks as well as Fukuzumiro in Hakone Yumoto.

Wish Suimeiso had an outdoor hot spring.

Mandingo has rates starting at ¥11,000 per person per night. Depends which room and which meal plan you select. Cheaper and more chiices if you book using their Japanese booking page. Thar is Often true.

That's because Mandingo is a terrible correction of a typo by my iPhone. It's nonsense. The best rates for most places are usually online, in Japanese and direct booking rather than third party.
