Netflix’s ‘Naked Director’ to Star Japan’s Takayuki Yamada
You can't hide anything at an onsen in Japan. Yet your neighbour doesn't make eye contact, in fact barely acknowledges you, despite your pink nakedness after soaking in a 44C tub with other men.
This onsen is one of the better ones, set among lush trees and bird life. Looking for something different and some me time I upgraded to a private onsen, a 3m by 2m naked pool overlooking a forest, for the ultimate soak.

All I can say is that the service and room was fantastic. Miss drinks, plenty of space to relax japan you need a break from the steaming tub, and privacy. Best to book ahead but you can get private onsens, generally mid week and later in day.
The spa also has funny hentei pictures restaurant and a free shuttle to the train station. Some private onsens can service four or more at a time to accommodate families or other groups.
A great experience while touring Hakone region.
