Hakone Kowakien Yunessun

Hakone Kowakien Yunessun in Hakone is a great way to escape the cold of winter and equally the heat of summer.

Combining a family-style water amusement park, Yunessun Spa Resort, with a more traditional onsen, Mori No Yu, Hakone Kowakien Yunessun is very popular with visitors from nearby Tokyo. Swimsuits are a must at Yunessun Spa Resort to enjoy its water slides and novelty baths such as a green tea bath, a sake bath, a wine bath and the The God's Aegean Sea spa (pictured below).
