Let's do one of the nicest day trip from Tokyo or Hakone
This is a day trip (about 9 hours) starting from your hotel in central Tokyo to Hakone town. There are different ways to get there (via Odawara / Hakone-Yumoto and via Mishima). Starting from Tokyo Station if you wanna use Shinkansen (bullet train) or from Shinjuku Station (Romance train). Please let me know if you will be coming to Japan with JR Pass or if not, if you wanna experience bullet train. Your hotel location is also relevant, so please let me know in order to plan the logistics.
In the case you stay in Hakone, I can meet you there for the day trip.
After train from Tokyo, we will get local buses, we will see beautiful views, sightseeing cruise on Lake Ashi, where we may see Mt. Fuji* (depends on the weather), gondola up to Mt. Owakudani (black eggs from the volcano), cable car etc. Whatever way we decide (bullet train or Odakyu train), also you will need to buy Hakone Pass for you + me (guide) to enjoy all mentioned transportation around the area. If we decide by bullet train, we will get off at Mishima Station and will take a local bus to Mishima Skywalk (the longest suspended bridge in Japan - 400m). From there, other bus to Lake Ashi. Lunch at a buffet restaurant or snack in a cafe restaurant with a nice view to the lake. Depending of the timing, we may go onboard the ship or do a 20min walking along the lake. The sightseeing cruise takes about 25min to the other side. Then, we will take gondolas to Mt. Owakudani, where we may see Mt. Fuji again. From there, we need to go to Gora village to get a bus / train to Hakone-Yumoto station > Odawara > Toky
