A historic building registered as a cultural property, with a spectacular open-air bath! [Dragon Palace Main Building]
The Ryuguden, which was built in 1938 on Bentenjima, a scenic spot on Lake Hamana, was relocated and has been operating as the Hakone Prince Hotel Japanese Style Annex since 1957. It is a luxurious hot spring facility where you can enjoy not only luxurious buildings registered as nationally registered tangible cultural properties, but also spectacular views of Lake Ashi, Mt. Hakone, and Mt. Fuji.
It has been closed for a while since 2012, but it was reopened in 2017 as a one-day hot spring.
The predecessor of the main building of the Dragon Palace is the luxury hotel "Hamanako Hotel", which was built to imitate Byodoin Phoenix Hall. It is said that Mr. Shigeshi Tobishima, the former president of Tobishima Corp. (currently Tobishima Corporation), fully incorporated his hobbies and designed it with all his luxury.
Due to its grandeur, the relocation to Hakone is a big business. It is said that it was finally completed after spending more than a year, with many engineers from all over the country involved in the construction work, inviting a palace carpenter from Kyoto.
It is this atrium that symbolizes the majesty of the Dragon Palace. Pillars with a thickness of 80 cm and a length of 10 m are valuable items that are no longer available.

With the renewal, the indoor and outdoor baths for women have been newly expanded. The entire bathroom is designed to protrude into Lake Ashi, so you can enjoy the feeling of being immersed in Lake Ashi.
This is an indoor bath for men. Of course, you can see Lake Ashi and Mt. Fuji from here as well.
The restaurant has table seats that are easy to use while leaving tatami mats. There is also a tasteful hot spring bath and private rooms that can be reserved for private use, so you can relax for a day.
The "mountain god" is enshrined on the walking course on the west side of the main building of the Dragon Palace. If you enjoy a walk overlooking Lake Ashi, don't forget to pray for good luck.

The entrance of the Dragon Palace was changed when it was relocated, so the former entrance is now facing the lake. In other words, this figure looking up from the lake may be close to the one at the time of construction. The beautiful appearance of the phoenix as if it were relaxing and resting its wings fits nicely into the natural scenery of Hakone.
