How to wear Yukata

Japanese people wear yukata (informal cotton kimono) when relaxing at home or when
going out during the summer. So, why not dress yourself in a yukata? Just follow the
directions in the order indicated in the illustration and relax with it in your room or
anywhere in the Ryokan. The yukata also serves as sleepwear at night. It is provided to
you temporarily during your stay so that you can use it for this purpose. Please note also
that it is not a bathrobe. During cold weather seasons, a short coat (haori) or padded
outer garment (tanzen) is worn over the yukata. The yukata may also be worn outside
while strolling around the area surrounding the Ryokan.

Bon Odori!!

Bon is a Japanese Buddhist custom to honor the departed spirits of one's ancestors.

This Buddhist custom has evolved into a family reunion holiday during which people return to ancestral family places and visit and clean their ancestors' graves, and when the spirits of ancestors are supposed to revisit the household altars.

It has been celebrated in Japan for more than 500 years and traditionally includes a dance, known as Bon-Odori.

The Bon Festival Dance has been held also at the Hotel Okada every year.

The period ends on the 15th from August 8.

Volcano in Hakone

I often recommend Owakudani for the foreign traveler.
Owakudani is one of the most beautiful area as famous as the lake Ashi in Hakone.
You will enjoy the view of Mt. Fuji with Hakone mountains and also the volcanic landscape created 400 thousand years ago.

So you can see mt.Fuji, volcano, and you can enjoy black eggs!

According to Japanese legend, every egg you eat will prolong your life by 7 years.
Kuro-tamago are very popular as a life-prolonging food.

One black egg for adding 7 years to your life.
Two black eggs for adding 14 years to your life....
It is highly recommended that you taste Kuro-tamago boiled in hot sulfurous mud water which is very specific to Owakudani.

Access from Hotel Okada

Hotel Okada - Hakone Yumoto st. (Round bus 5min)
