At Hotel Indigo Hakone Gora you can take your onsen experience to the next level with its digital wall and experience its mesmerizing digital art show, which was inspired by the nature of Gora, including its water, fire, and rocks, while soaking in the jet bath, sitting on the bench sofa, or sinking your feet into the onsen foot bath and let this unique entertainment experience fire up your imagination while you relax your body. And it’s all accompanied by suitably soothing background music. These digital art shows are new each season, depicting, for example, the stones of the Haya River changing from green to red to mimic the autumn leaves, or, in the winter version, the flowing river turning to ice then to powdered snow.
