The pristine, secluded location
Hidden away from the tourist crowds, Hiramatsu Hakone-Sengokuhara is a half-hour drive through the rolling mountains from the Hakone-Yumoto Station. The handsome building, with its modern slate-gray facade, is set amongst lush nature in the upscale neighbourhood of Sengokuhara, which is known for its private holiday homes. The resort promises a calm and peaceful hideaway – and it’s a perfect base to explore the region’s seasonal foliage. Autumn is especially beautiful, with the immensely photogenic pampas grass field just around the corner.
