I have read that 5 years old below are not allowed in Onsen, is there a place in Hakone that will allow the child to be admitted but will not dip in the hot spring? even in private? thanks!

kunoichi kunoichi, Living in Japan

Some onsen do allow infants to be in onsen (the public big bath in the hotel) but many places require him/her to be old enough that they have finished using diapers. It depends on the facility but if it is a private bath attached in  your room, many places allow small children to be in the bath.
