Seems like quite a lot of places to cover in 2 weeks. May be a bit tiring to be always moving and changing accom

You sure about airbnb despite what happened? Capsule or those dorm for backpackers would be a safer bet.

Just had a quick look, only found 1 near odawara station and 1 more at hakone-yumoto. The rest all quite far from any stations.

Also, this 2 are alrdy almost double of what agoda hostels are offering. I think i stick back to hostel. Just need a place to sleep and maybe enjoy onsen after dinner.

<$600 should be possible if your kids share your meals, and perhaps bedding, with you. This depends on the ryokan's policy.

Maybe can try https://yamanochaya.com/?

Even though there is no private bath you can look for smaller ryokans as chances are the public bath is quite empty.

Probably very low chance. •48,000 for 2A2C is too low a budget, even if you do not include meals. Nice and good will never be cheap. Moreover attached private bath would be more costly. You might want to search for rooms with rental family baths instead.

trying my luck coz i thought there should be more such ryokans in mainland... so maybe will push the price down?

previously those i tried in hokkaido were $800-1000...

having private bath is really enjoyable at your own time... can own time own target...

Thatís why I said they wonít be cheap. Search for weekday stays. And if your children are above 6, the ryokans/hotels will charge. $800-1000 would be a better budget for one night with attached private bath. Those in Hakone and Kawaguchiko probably would cost around there. Unless you wish to consider other areas such as Atami (easy access from Tokyo) or further inside of Izu Peninsula.
