Spa Facilities


Free your mind and body and let your spirit flow.
Synergetic effects of the hot springs and the Five Elements Spa.

Soak in the hot springs sourced from the dynamic energy of the land of Gora, Hakone. Then, get a luxurious treatment by hand by a therapist who’s mastered the biorhythms of the five elements: wood, fire, earth, metal, and water. The sublime combination of hot springs and the Five Elements Spa can only be experienced at Gora Spa Aioi. Correct the balance of your body and spirit, and let your true, healthy inner beauty emerge.

Starting In Summer 2020


Go through the noren curtains, and you’ll find yourself in a different world.
Stand still, look around, listen, and let your heart guide you.

A trip is a precious experience, where you can escape your daily routines. We at Karaku invite you a truly soul-soothing experience—take in the full splendor of the seasons, from the moment you step in until the moment we bid you farewell. Your extraordinary lodging experience will begin as soon as you step in. You’ll immediately be greeted by a 16-meter tall kumiko-pattern wall designed by a master craftsman, and in the lobby beyond, a brick design depicting the Hayakawa river on one wall. Take in these elaborate designs as you check in.
After soaking in Hakone’s renowned hot springs for as long as you please, cool off on the terrace while marveling at the colorful displays and sounds of nature. Or if you prefer, unwind at the guest lounge with a drink in hand, engaging in conversation or losing yourself in a book. Enjoy a moment of serenity with other guests, where you’re invited to relax to your heart’s content.
