Hotels in Minami Ashigara City

Where to stay?

There are various Ryokan and Minshuku (Japanese style Inns) that you can stay in. They are very reasonably priced and you will sleep on a futon
in a tatami mat room. The bath is shared. People will take turns having their bath at night in a minshuku, or it will be a larger shared bath in a ryokan.
Breakfast and dinner will be of course, Japanese style. I don`t like the traditional Japanese breakfast of cold fish (with the head still on, staring up at you),
miso soup and rice, but others do! That said, staying at a ryokan or minshuku is a great experience and one that should not be missed if you live in or visit

Many of the Minshuku and ryokan are located on the main road in downtown Minami Ashigara, (along the road right in front of Daiyuzan Station). Go out of the
station and turn left and you will find 3-5 ryokan and minshuku on the way to Daiyuzan Temple (Saijoji). The most famous temple in the area. You can stay at
one of these inns then take the beautiful hike up the hill to the various temples in this huge temple complex; which is surrounded by 100 year old cedar trees.
Even Kyoto cannot boast of this!

    Special Odawara plan for women

    The Hilton Odawara Resort & Spa, situated in the foothills near Hakone, is offering a special accommodation package called the Otona no Joshi-kai Plan. “Joshi-kai” is a recent Japanese phrase used to describe women-only parties where friends gather to enjoy meals, drinks and conversation.

    The package includes a bottle of sparkling wine and canapes in the room, buffet breakfast and afternoon tea (a dessert buffet instead of afternoon tea is available on weekends and holidays). It also includes complimentary access to the hotel’s 11 spa pools, natural hot spring baths and relaxation room as well as a special offer on a head and shoulder massage spa treatment at the Aqua Beaute Spa. Surrounded by nature, guests can relax and enjoy a special time with friends while taking in a great view of the tranquil waters of Sagami Bay.

    The package rates start at ¥15,000 per person for a group of four people and the plan is available through March 31 (except Feb. 11, March 20 and Saturdays).

    The Hilton Odawara Resort & Spa is a 15-minute drive from Odawara Station. There is a shuttle bus from the station on weekdays and shuttle bus service daily from Nebukawa Station, two stops from Odawara. For more information, contact (0465) 29-1000.
