Leaving Tokyo and heading to Kyoto. We are going to stop in Hakone for 2 nights. Is there a traditional style Ryokan we can get to and allows wheelchairs? We don’t need an accessible bathroom. We can manage for 2 nights. Also, how do we get to Kyoto from Hakone?March 11, 2019 at 12:16 pm #8337
Finding a really ‘traditional’ ryokan may be tough, depending on your definition. A quick google search brings up the following for a place to stay: http://www.pax-yoshino.com/
It looks like they have some barrier-free rooms.
As for how to get to Hakone from Kyoto, it looks like there’s a fair number of transfers involved. It really depends on what station you’re leaving from. If you give me some more information, I can try and help you out!

(Thanks @bookman for your answer!)
Yes, Pax Hoshino is great, but often is fully booked – so act fast!
As for getting there, take the “Romance Car” on the Odakyu Line to go right to Hakone, but as @bookman says, there are other transfers once you get there if you are doing the standard route. All are accessible, but there are a few steep places.

I did read the article. It was great! Any other Ryokans that can be recommended?March 12, 2019 at 11:04 am #8348March 12, 2019 at 11:31 am #8349
Thank you for your question.I recommend riding the bullet train when going Kyoto from Hakone.You need to transfer to the bullet train(Hikari or Kodama) at Odawara.
And I recommend that traditional style Ryokan 「
GORA KADAN」（https://www.gorakadan.com）or 「
Hakone Ginyu」（http://www.hakoneginyu.co.jp）or「TENSUI SARYO」（https://www.tensui-saryo.com）or「Hananoyado Fukuya」（http://www.hakone-fukuya.com）or「Gora Hanaougi」（https://gorahanaougi.com）because it is traditional Japanese culture to the full.I am hoping that it will be a good trip.March 13, 2019 at 12:16 pm #8361March 13, 2019 at 2:03 pm #8362
