Japanese Hot Springs Theme Park at Hakone Kowakien YUNESSUN ♨ Going to a Japanese Natural Hot Springs During the Summer

Map source: Unique Japan Tours
Hakone, one of Japan's leading hot springs areas. 
Hakone is close enough to Tokyo to where you can get there easily, 
but far enough to where you can get away from the hustle and bustle of Tokyo. 
It's roughly a 2 hour drive, 
located in Kanagawa Prefecture on a mountain region that borders Mt. Fuji. 
Today, much of the area is an active volcanic zone where sulfurous fumes, 
which explains why relaxing in Hakone's hot springs 
and hot rivers are to die for! 

 Many foreigners want to experience a Japanese hot spring but the idea of being naked in public makes them uneasy. 
Also, since it's summer vacation for many, 
they are looking for a cool water park to hang out at! 
Which is why this time, 
JAPANKURU wants to introduce the one-of-a-kind Hakone hot springs 
Hakone Kowakien YUNESSUN

Here, you can wear a swimsuit to soak and play in Japan's natural hot springs based on many different themes and events! 

Last year we went to YUNESSUN and had the time of our lives! 

This summer, 
Hakone Kowaken YUNESSUN has prepared a lot of new cool and limited areas which is why JAPANKURU immediately went to check them out and play!


 Hakone Kowakien YUNESSUN Themed Spa! 

Many of YUNESSUN's hot spring baths are set being their "regular" baths 
like the red wine bath, sake bath, and green tea bath. 
YUNESSUN also features special baths that change monthly/seasonally!

 ♨☕ Iced Coffee Bath ☕♨ 
(Limited Summer Bath)
 There is already a coffee bath, 
but to cool down this summer YUNESSUN introduced an iced coffee bath🥤
 YUNESSUN pushes the iced coffee bath
for those who need to take a coffee break☕ 
It's an iced coffee bath...but in a hot spring! 

What goes well with ice coffee? 
Milk, of course! 
The iced coffee bath also incorporates an "event time" 
where they add milk and GIANT ice cubes to the bath every day! 
If you want to be mixed into this creamy iced coffee hot spring bath, 
be sure to be in the bath from 1pm~3pm.

many jellyfish and tropical fish are in tanks surrounding you
light u in colorful LED lights.

 In addition to the desserts that are limited by the ice coffee bath,
 there is a limited dessert by the "Jellyfish Cave".

Bozappi's Jungle Gym 

Probably our favorite part of YUNESSUN 
is the water park like hot springs area 
that has rides and attractions for everyone!!  
Like the cool hot springs jungle gym, Bozappi's Jungle Gym
It's similar to a jungle gym you'd see on the playground,
except it includes a big bucket of water getting water poured on you.

Rodeo Mountain 
 An impressive water slide with swift currents. 
Remember! It's a hot spring! 
So even in winter you can enjoy it!!
